Viewers of The One Show were divided on last night’s BBC show on Twitter, with many branding it “shambolic”.
Rowan Atkinson was a guest on the show last night.
However, viewers felt his interview was “wasted” thanks to hosts Jermaine Jenas and Angela Scanlon.

Yesterday’s episode of The One Show hosted Jermaine and Angela.
The presenter duo welcomed two guests – Top Gear star Chris Harris and comedian Rowan – to the show.

And it was her interview with Rowan that drew criticism from viewers.
Rowan, 67, was on the show to promote his new Netflix series Man Vs Bee. In the new series, Rowan will play a man at odds with a bee terrorizing his mansion.
Rowan explained that the new series consists of nine episodes, each ten minutes long, making it perfect for “binge-watching”.

The Mr. Bean star then went on to talk about his new show, explaining that it’s a “largely visual” affair.
“It’s just Trevor in a house with a bee — and the bee isn’t talking,” he said.
He then went on to say that he enjoyed playing Trevor, who is very different from Mr. Bean, in the new series.
“Trevor Bingley is a much nicer man than Mr. Bean, who is really quite a mess,” he said.
“A self-centered, self-centered, born anarchist,” he added.
Towards the end of the show, as Rowan was speaking, host Angela interfered and ended the program.
While some might have enjoyed Rowan’s interview, many didn’t — and it wasn’t the actor’s fault.
Some viewers weren’t happy with how the presenters kept interrupting Rowan during his interview or how little screen time the 67-year-old actually got. Many took to Twitter to slam the program and the hosts.
“#TheOneShow There’s no point getting Rowan Atkinson if you ask him a question and then keep chiming in to try and shut him up! one scolded.

“You have Rowan Atkinson. TALK TO HIM!!” another wrote.
“Wasted! You had the incredibly talented Rowan Atkinson in the studio and you hardly spoke to him and when you did you killed him quick!” said another.
Not everyone hated the interview. “Rowan Atkinson is so fascinating,” tweeted one viewer.
The One Show airs weekdays from 7pm on BBC One and BBC iPlayer.
