Talk show Studio 10 reveals their worst celebrity guests

It’s the Channel 10 morning talk show celebrating its 1000th episode.

And since its November 2013 debut, Studio 10 has welcomed a number of high-profile celebrity guests.

The show’s executive producer since its inception, Rob McKnight,opened up to news.com.au on Thursday about the program’s best and worst interviews.

The executive dished on the most difficult guests to join the show’s main panelists Sarah Harris, Joe Hildebrand, Denise Drysdale, Ita Buttrose and Jessica Rowe.

Without giving names, he cited a ‘camp English comedian’ who ‘didn’t get the format of the show’ as one of the worst stars to make an appearance.

‘Five minutes into our Hot Topics segment he turned to the camera and said, “I think we’ll take a commercial break now.” The other hosts were like, “ah, no, we’ve still got a few more Hot Topics”,’ he described.

He also noted an Australian funnyman ‘well-known for his records and his limericks’ reacted harshly when the studio audience didn’t respond well to his jokes.

‘It was the one and only time that I’ve honestly thought, do we pull this guest off the show halfway through?’ he reflected.

Another scheduled guest, described as a ‘pint-sized singer’, cancelled on them last minute and Rob vented ‘we will never have that person on for as long as we exist’.

The executive producer raved over Paula Abdul, who reportedly offered her services as a panelist after watching an episode of the show while in Australia.

The bubbly entertainer ended up starring on the show once a week for two months and Rob gushed that she ‘couldn’t have been a nicer person’.

He also heaped praise on veteran personality Patti Newton, who made an appearance on the show recently and took ‘better direction than the normal hosts’.
