The writer and comedian, 50, was on the BBC programme to promote his new Sky film Hansel and Gretel: After Ever After and was chatting to hosts Ronan and Alex Jones.
But Boyzone star Ronan, 44, appeared to get lost when he was introducing the segment, fluffing his words over the title of the movie.

He said: 'You've got a new show, it's a reimagined version of a much-loved fairy tale.
'It's called ... erm ... Hansel and Gretel: After Ever After.'
The star then apologised for stumbling over his words, blaming it on the film's 'complicated' title.
Funnyman David then joked back: 'It's all right, don't worry. I know you don't do any research.'

Fellow guest, Olympian Tom Daley, later flattered David by admitting his son Robert was a big fan of his kids' books.
He said: 'Well, we won't give any endings away here, but I've got a three-year-old who has been revealing the ending to your latest children's book, Gangster Granny Strikes Again.'
Praising the athlete while taking aim at Ronan again, David then replied: 'He did his research. He didn't arrive at 6.59.'
In another awkward moment David branded Ronan 'odd' after he said he wished the star was his dad after he had discussed an idyllic family scene.
David joked: 'He's had a lot of work done, that's why he looks young.'
Embarrassing Ronan even further, he added that the singer didn't know what an adjective was.
The host then jokingly replied: 'You weren't supposed to say that out loud.'
It comes after last week David revealed that Simon Cowell snubbed his 50th birthday party earlier this year and didn't even send a card, with the comedian suggesting the music mogul purposefully treats him 'cruelly'.
During an appearance on Lorraine alongside his Border Terrier Ernie, David also explained how Elton John kindly offered to perform at the bash, branding him a 'lovely man'.

In August, David hosted a spectacular star-studded party with a plethora of showbiz stars in attendance including Elizabeth Hurley, Amanda Holden, Laura Whitmore, Ant and Dec, Ayda Field and Gary Barlow.
But once face notably missing was Simon, 61, who failed to make an appearance at the bash held at posh Mayfair venue Claridge's.
Speaking of the no-show, David explained: 'He didn't come to my birthday. He didn't send me a card or anything.'
However, highlighting the light-hearted friendship he has with the X Factor boss, David suggested that Simon is intentionally 'cruel' to him as he knows he will 'love' him more.
He quipped: 'He likes to keep me hanging, he knows I love him more when he treats me cruelly.'
Meanwhile, the children's author detailed the touching gesture made my Elton John, 74.
Whoops! It comes after last week Davi d revealed that Simon Cowell snubbed his 50th birthday party earlier this year and didn't even send a card
He told Lorraine about Elton performing: 'He offered. He just said is anyone performing at your birthday? And I said "No" and he said "Well I'll do it. I'll do three songs"
'He did Your Song and dedicated it to my mum and put in her name in it - Kathleen.
'I didn't tell anyone he was going to perform. It was amazing. It was a total surprise. He's a very lovely man.'
