Sunrise host Samantha Armytage was less than impressed with Mark Holden's clowning around on Dancing With The Stars, resulting in one of the most uncomfortable interviews we've seen in a long time.
After being booted from the show last night, former Australian Idol judge Mark went on a rant against DWTS on this morning's Sunrise, calling the show "discriminatory" for pairing a 60-year-old with a 25-year-old dancer. WTF?
Samantha, who competed on the Seven show back in 2011, wasn't having a bar of it and made her feelings clearly known. Watch above!
To make the interview just that little bit more awkward, Mark pulled out his earpiece after David Koch told him "you're going off the rails".
For one excruciatingly long minute, Mark's dance partner Jessica Prince was left to conduct the rest of the interview as Mark just sat there.
Samantha added with disgust: "I think that's the first time a guest has ever taken an earpiece out while we were talking to them."
Mark has since clarified on Twitter: I took out my earpiece [out] because I couldn't hear through it which I communicated to the crew before going live to air on Sunrise @sunriseon7.
Mark's shirtless, Vladimir Putin-themed Paso Doble earned him just 12 points on last night's episode a marked improvement from last week's four out of 40 score for his traumatising clown routine.
Watch them both below... if you dare.
