At the end of the clip he rolls his tongue and gets a giggle off-camera from one of the show’s host.
Elsewhere in the programme, Narstie had viewers laughing when he walked in front of the camera and blocked out Ben Shephard as the presenters tried to say goodbye to viewers.
Viewers commented on social media that the rapper had them howling, with some commenting his appearance was the “best thing” they’d seen on the morning TV show.

Big Narstie presents his own chat show alongside comedian Mo Gilligan called The Big Narstie Show.
Speaking to NME about the programme, which last aired in August, the rapper said it’s “the most chillest thing on TV.”
He added that it has, “A lot of fucked up shit and a lot of real, genuine urban life. I’m not from a conventional world, innit? So the fact that I’m getting a chance to express my world in society and TV is epic.”
