Romesh Ranganathan tells Bradley Walsh ‘shut up’ as presenter heckles BAFTA win

Bradley Walsh had his fans doubled-over with laughter as he threw a ‘tantrum’ on live TV after losing out on winning a gong.

The 61-year-old TV star, who was up for Entertainment Performance, failed to win an award as comedian Romesh Ranganathan’s show The Ranganation took the crown.

In the crowd, a seething Bradley could be heard jokingly saying: “I can’t believe it,” as the comedian went up to collect his BAFTA.

The Chase star Bradley then loudly wolf-whistled to praise his fellow showbiz friend, before sarcastically heckling from his seat in the limited crowd.

Romesh, who was proud as punch, said: “Wow thank you so much. I really didn’t expect to win, well there was a good chance…

“It was much easier for me to do the show this series because I just had to do it from my garage.

“In many ways I feel like I’ve put in less effort for more reward. That’s what life’s all about in showbiz.”

After Romesh finished his winning speech, Bradley removed his mask and mouthed “this is a joke” once again at the camera.

Romesh jokingly told Bradley to “shut up” and it sent the audience into laughter.

Bradley’s pretend anger caught the attention of fans, who quickly pointed it out on Twitter.

“Shame that Bradley Walsh didn’t win that bafta,” one shared.

“Why is Bradley Walsh repeatedly taking his mask off to whistle and mouth s**** at the camera?” another penned.

A third commented: “Bradley Walsh mouthing to the camera ‘I can’t believe it.’ And then heckling the winner had me howling!”
