Dan was recently set to cut a guest off live on air after they swore.
A Ukrainian singer featured on the show on Wednesday and had a strong message for Russian president Vladimir Putin.
The former Strictly Come Dancing star had to interrupt Maria Burmaka after she swore at the Russian leader.
She said: “The Ukrainian anthem is very important for all Ukrainians and I’m a musician and I decided to take my amplifier and open the window and sing to the districts.
“My building is on one of the hills and all districts hear this anthem.
“I am staying here now, I want to stay here, many people go out of Ukraine but…I will not run from my native city, this is my home and I want to be here in the heart of Kyiv and sing for my people and maybe I will sing my national anthem again from this window.
“I want to say to Putin, you’re a murderer, you’re an aggressor, Ukraine was never against Russia.
She added: “Like our soldiers say: ‘F*** you.”

Dan cut Maria and said: “I really understand the depth of feeling but I have to apologise to our viewers for the language there.”
He added: “Apologies for the language there but I’m sure watching this morning you understand how strong Maria’s feelings are and so many people in Ukraine trying to defend themselves and protect their families and look after their country.”
