The 58-year-old, whose real name is Mark Berry, made a name for himself in the 1980s with his wild jumps and double maracas.
Welcoming Bez to the show, Nugent asked: “Where are your maracas? You didn’t take them with you. “
Bez replied before laughing: “I have – but I keep them in my pants,” prompting Nugent to blush and reply, “I asked for that, didn’t I?”
Thompson found the exchange equally enjoyable, adding: “It got off to a good start…”
