The camera then flashed over the night’s guests, who were all wearing hospital masks as a gag. There was one person missing though — professional dancer Amy Dowden had turned up without Karim Zeroual.

“What, no Karim?” Zoe then joked, then explaining: “He’s got the lurgy too. Nothing to do with me too, I swear!’
