Pooch Perfect host Sheridan Smith had viewers in hysterics as she lost her composure during a discussion on finger condoms.
Yes, you read that right. Finger condoms.
As the quarter-final of the BBC competition kicked off, the contestants were tasked with removing dead hair from a selection of Welsh terriers.
Judge Colin Taylor was talking the presenter through the challenge, discussing the different techniques and instruments groomers use.
However, things quickly took a turn when he unveiled some interesting-looking finger covers – that resembled tiny condoms.
Struggling to keep her control, the 39-year-old suggested: ‘They look like… ermmm…’
‘Yes, you’re right,’ her co-star replied. ‘These are finger condoms.’
Demonstrating how to don a finger condom, Colin put one on his index finger instructing: ‘Slide it down, it might fly off. we hope it doesn’t fly off.
‘These are used to actually get some grip on the coat. It helps you grab the hair and you can be really, really detail-y.
‘You can go around them ears and pull them intricate hairs out.’
Sheridan couldn’t control her laugher, and was in tears as she tried to compose herself.
As the pair giggled through the segment, Colin explained the ‘finger condoms’ are actually specially made for dog grooming.
Good to know.
It seems fans watching on from home had the same reaction as Sheridan, and were in fits of laughter through the chat.
Flocking to Twitter to discuss the scenes, one penned: ‘Wow #PoochPerfect @Sheridansmith1 never thought you had to use condoms to groom a dog!!???’
‘Colin showing off the finger condoms has me losing it. Bless him. @Sheridansmith1 hardly keeping it together #PoochPerfect,’ another commented.
‘Finger condoms!!! Loving Sheridans reaction!! #PoochPerfect,’ a Twitter user agreed.
As a follower joked: ‘The sheer indignity of being groomed by someone wearing mini condoms on their fingers #PoochPerfect.’
And one added: ‘Finger condoms and stripping…. can only be #PoochPerfect @BBCOne @Sheridansmith1.’
