Jonathan Ross gets a mauling from his own guests

Jonathan Ross

Jonathan Ross has received a mauling — this time from his own guests — as he filmed his Friday Night show.

The chat show host said he was feeling “rather sore and bruised” after three separate play fights broke out, involving Gary Lineker, Gorillaz and Ross Noble.

Viewers saw how the “free-for-all” began when comedian Noble, the first guest to sit down for a chat, tried to swap seats with Ross.

Former England star Lineker also pretended to throw some punches at Ross when it was his turn to take to the stage. The biggest wrestling match was saved until last — when Damon Albarn's band Gorillaz piled on to the host as they closed the show.

Ross wrote on Twitter yesterday: “I am rather sore and bruised after getting wrestled to the ground repeatedly during last night's show.

“Ross Noble started it...”

Ross is hosting his final series as he prepares to quit the corporation this summer. His decision to leave came just over a year after the notorious ‘Sachsgate’ scandal

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Virgo:

Spending time on your own will be rewarding. You're an extremely conscientious person who is hyperaware of your surroundings. Sometimes this sensitivity can inhibit you from doing what you really want. You're afraid of offending people with your bold ideas. Instead of repressing your instincts, obey them. If you've developed a romantic interest in someone special, make your move. Playing the aggressor will boost your confidence. Keep your conversations light and playful.More
