A Hilarious Zoom Call Incident
During the show, Alison and Dermot shared a humorous photo of a man receiving a massage during a virtual meeting.

Dermot emphasized that such actions had been criticized for being unprofessional and inappropriate.
The Humorous Take on the Situation
Amid laughter, Isla continued to share her humorous take on the man’s photo. She remarked, “How could you take him seriously if he was talking about the latest figures and you’re looking at his little moobs there.” She also added that “no one wants to see that.”
A Cheeky Twist
During the discussion, Alison playfully asked Isla how she would feel if the man in the photo were David Beckham.
Isla, after a brief pause, cheekily responded, “I’d be distracted for a completely different reason.” Alison even winked at the camera in response to Isla’s humorous remark.
