Peter went on to recall the “embarrassing” moment he congratulated one of the stars in the show on her marriage, believing it was real.

He explained to listeners: “I went to watch Mamma Mia, the stage version, and I loved it and I don’t want to ruin it, but she gets married at the end.

“They go off into the moonlight to, [the song] I have a dream.

“I got a bit emotional and anyway, I knew the stage manager and she said, ‘Come back’.

“So, I went back and the main girl she said, ‘Lovely to meet you’ and I said, ‘Congratulations!”

“And she said, ‘Why?’”

Recalling his reply, Peter said he reminded her she had just got married.

He added of her reaction: “She looked at me as if to say, ‘This is a play, this is a musical and this is real life’.

“I was mortified, I was so wrapped up in it, I said ‘Congratulations on getting married!’

“It was so embarrassing. I nearly got her a gift card!”
