    Just Stop Oil protesters stormed The Last Leg which was airing live at the Channel 4 studio on Friday, July 14.

    Host Adam Hills had quite the shock when he realised some unexpected guests had joined him up on stage for a live performance of The Last Leg.

    The comedy show, which sees Adam, Josh Widdicombe and Alex Brooker invite celebrity guests on and talk about various issues of the week with a comedic twist, took a very unexpected turn.

    Moments after the show went live at 10pm, Just Stop Oil interrupted the TV show, with a protester coming on stage and giving the hosts high vis jackets with Just Stop Oil written on it.

    The hosts shouted: "Yaaay woohoo! This is not part of the show, this is not part of the show."

    One of the protesters ran up to Adam with a Just Stop Oil t-shirt on and gave him a hug saying: "Hi I'm William."

    Adam then put the high vis jacket on, with his fellow hosts following soon after, while security immediately stepped in to remove the protesters from the stage.

    One viewer shared a clip to Twitter as they wrote: "Just Stop Oil just interrupted The Last Leg seconds after they started broadcasting live."

    Comments flooded in as one person wrote: "This is how you deal with a protest. Nicely done lads."

    While another said: "The hosts honestly took it in good stride and were sort of positive about it."

    A third added: "Absolutely fantastic! Best protest I've seen in time. Lads handled it like scardy professionals."

    One user thought the response from the hosts was so good that the protest was "planned" ahead of time, but the stage invasion was completely unexpected.

    It comes shortly after the opening night of the BBC Proms was interrupted by two protesters from Just Stop Oil, who set off confetti cannons and sounded air horns.

    Members of the group had run onto the stage at the Royal Albert Hall on Friday before being removed by security.

    The group claimed the action came in response to “underwhelming” coverage of climate change by the BBC.
