Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford's son was "mortified" when they appeared on 'Ant & Dec's Saturday Night Takeaway.'
The couple - who co-present 'This Morning' - embarrassed their son Jack, 12, last month when they appeared on the ITV programme to help prank an unsuspecting wedding planner, and were filmed snogging and twerking.
Ruth said: "The one thing I sort of hadn't factored in was our poor 12-year-old son Jack. I mean, seeing your parents twerking and snogging on national television. He was mortified until his friends started texting him saying 'God, this is so funny'. "
Ruth admits she didn't know what the dance movement twerking - which was famed by Miley Cyrus, and involves shaking the hips and moving your bottom up and down - was, and was shocked to see the size of her backside on screen.
She joked to HEAT magazine: "I wasn't sure what twerking was. I thought it was sticking your bottom out, so I went for it. When I see it now, I go, 'God my arse looks huge. '"
Eamonn chimed: "That's because it is huge. Of course, I knew exactly what twerking was, because I'm right down with the kids. You know, Miley Cyrus and everything."
