Jonathan had a pretty awkward moment with Madonna – during the British Comedy Awards presentation in 2006, the Queen of Pop took the stage to help the comedian perform a gong.
As she took the stage, Jonathan shouted, “Congratulations on your adorable little black baby David.”
Despite the awkwardness and subsequent criticism that followed, Madonna replied, “You could go home with a black eye.”
