The One Show ends in chaos thanks to Richard Branson

© Provided by Digital Spy Richard Branson brought The One Show to a very memorable conclusion on Thursday (October 12) when he suddenly decided to surf on the furniture.

The Virgin mogul joined regular One Show presenter Matt Baker and fill-in Angela Scanlon to talk about his aid work in Puerto Rico and his contentious history with Donald Trump, but it was his send-off that got the most attention.

On the show with Richard was Strictly Come Dancing's Susan Calman, who was chatting about her routine for this weekend when Richard suddenly started showing off his own dance moves by leaping onto the table separating the presenters and guests.

"Table-dancing I'm good at," he admitted. "All our tables at [the Island of Necker are made for dancing."

As Richard mimed surfing on the furniture, a befuddled-but-chuckling Matt Baker and Angela Scanlon quickly wrapped up the half-hour - leaving a table-surfing Richard Branson as the show's last image of the night.

When he wasn't table-dancing, Richard opened up about a bizarre encounter he'd once had with Donald Trump years before Trump became America's president.

"He had a lunch with me and he said that there were five people in his life who had crossed him, and that he was going to spend the rest of his life destroying them," Branson remembered.

"And I just said to him that I thought it would eat him up, it wouldn't be be constructive. [These people] hadn't done anything bad. They just hadn't given him money when he was last bankrupt."

Unfortunately for Richard, Trump later branded the Virgin boss a "failure" when Branson's reality competition The Rebel Billionaire was dropped after just one series.

"When I did a TV show, which was quite fun, it was an adventurous show where we went around the world with young kids putting them through adventures," Richard explained.

"It was a show that was slightly different to The Apprentice, but he saw it as a bit of a rival and he let loose."

Let's hope Trump wasn't watching tonight, or he might unleash nuclear war on Broadcasting House.
