Hosts Matt Baker and Angela Scanlon were discussing Strictly Come Dancing with current competitor Susan Calman.
However, the pair were left completely aghast when they quizzed Richard, 67, about his own dancing history.
The business tycoon confessed that he doesn't quite possess the skills required for a stint on the ballroom, revealing that his talents lie elsewhere.

Richard showed off his dancing skills
"Table dancing I'm good at," he admitted. "All our tables at Necker (Island) are made for dancing."
Although a joke at the time, no one could have expected to see the businessman climb on top of the show's glass table.
Matt and Angela were stunned as Richard proceeded to gyrate his hips along while The One Show came to a close.
Viewers of the BBC programme seemed to love his spirit, taking to Twitter to comment on his moves.
