‘I had to turn over!’: Roman Kemp leaves fans cringing at VERY awkward interview with Keanu Reeves as he grills Hollywood star on British culture
Capital Radio listeners were left cringing on Wednesday when Roman Kemp interviewed Keanu Reeves on his Breakfast show.
The 30-year-old presenter had pre-recorded a chat with the Canadian actor, 58, where he grilled the actor on British culture – leaving the Hollywood legend baffled.
During the chat, Roman asked Keanu if his legendary hitman character John Wick would be able to beat ‘the nation’s P.E teacher’ Joe Wicks in a fight.
Keanu has been on the promotional tour for John Wick: Chapter 4, which critics have hailed ‘one of the greatest action movies of all time.’
Although clearly baffled by the question, polite Keanu responded: ‘Fantastic! I know it’s hard to believe but John Wick doesn’t really wanna fight, so let’s just talk about life and fitness, John Wick hashtag fitness!’

Roman then informed Keanu that John Wick sounded like British hardware chain Wickes, to which a confused Keanu replied: ‘For when you just have to get it done, I’m gonna Wickes my bathroom, I’m gonna Wickes my new kitchen!’
The son of Spandau Ballet legend Martin Kemp concluded the interview by doing an impression of Keanu.
He explained: ‘So, I try to change the face first, and how I do that it, you’re about to sneeze, lean back, eyes are gone, and you’re now confused about the sneeze, and then it goes, “what?” (impersonating Keanu] “so you see, what I’m tryin’ to do here?”‘
While Keanu was a good sport during the interview it seemed he was baffled by the line of questioning, prompting Capital Radio to share a clip of the exchange captioned: ‘Is this the most awkward interview of all time!?’
Cringing viewers were left in hysterics, commenting: ‘for god sake never let him do this again’; ‘Had to turn over to Capital Dance’; ‘His face.’
It’s the second time Roman has suffered an awkward blunder in recent days after he accidentally ate a special Creme Egg that could have been worth up to £10,000.
He shared a photo of his discovery after unwrapping a half white, half milk chocolate treat while kicking back in front of the TV on Sunday.
But his relaxing day soon descended into chaos when he discovered the truth behind the ‘new Cadbury’s egg.’

In the hilarious Twitter exchange, Roman added that the treat ‘tasted like regret’ after scoffing it down.
Addressing the situation on Capital Breakfast on Monday, the presenter and his co-hosts Sian Welby and Chris Stark, asked Cadbury’s to help.
Cadbury’s launched the prize draw earlier this year, with one of the half and half eggs being worth £10,000 and another 22 of them worth £50.
Sharing a photo of the Creme Egg to Twitter, Roman penned: ‘What is this??? HALF WHITE HALF MILK CHOCOLATE?’
The panic soon set in after his fans revealed that he could have just ‘eaten £10,000.’
‘I’ve already eaten it and people are saying it’s worth 10k? I have eaten it what do I do now? HELP’
‘People saying it’s a prank or that I’ve tippexed it. I f****** wish. THIS IS NOT FUNNY. IT TASTES LIKE REGRET,’ Roman wrote.

Speaking on Capital Sian said: ‘You wallow in shame, I mean it’s the most ridiculous, why, why did you go straight to the thought it was an error.’
Roman explained: ‘Because…and this is the only reason why I bring up the fact, here’s the problem, anytime I say something related to a brand they think it’s an advert, because I do a lot of adverts, and that’s fine.
‘But this is a fact… I’ve eaten an egg that’s worth £10,000.’
