Joe Lycett opened up on The Graham Norton Show about a spat he'd had with Lord Alan Sugar on Twitter.

The comedian, 33, confessed on the BBC One programme that he "did have beef" with The Apprentice star.

Speaking to Graham on the show, Joe explained that he had responded to a boastful social media post that Alan had shared about jetting off to Miami.

He told the host: "So I tweeted him and said 'I have just popped to Homebase in my Ford Fiesta but you don't see me going on about it.'

"I followed up with 'anyway… are you horny?'"

Joe added: "I didn't think I'd get a tweet back but I did.

"I think he called me double-barrel p***k or something like that."

Graham Norton returned to screens on Friday for a traditional New Year's Eve show.

He was joined by guests including Michael Sheen, Jessica Chastain, Claire Foy, and Peter Dinklage.

In the special episode, Joe also spoke about working at the Manchester Palace Theatre and becoming angry with customers who would ask irritating questions.

He joked: "If ever you buy an ice cream at the Manchester Palace theatre then the spoon is in the f***ing lid."

The Eight Out Of Ten Cat's star quipped: "They'd always come back to you and ask 'where is the spoon'?'"

Meanwhile, Joe had everyone laughing when host Graham asked him to help out with the weekly red chair.

Each week Graham invites non-celebs to take to the seat to tell a funny story.

However, when the show's presenter asked Joe to help him out with that part of the show, he hilariously declined.

Joe said: "I'm actually really busy right now I can't help out as I’m on The Graham Norton Show," which caused everyone to fall about laughing.
