Homes Under The Hammer star Lucy Alexander, 50, responded to a newspaper article which referred to her as the host of Wanted Down Under. The latter show is presented by Nicki Chapman, 53.
The presenters discussed the blunder on Twitter, but the conversation soon became even more awkward when a fan suggested Lucy should replace Nicki on the show.
Lucy wrote: “At least do your research… @Nicki_Chapman presents that fabulous show.”
A Twitter user replied: “I thought you were the new presenter that’s why they wrote it.”
Another fan tweeted: “Perhaps they will offer it to you. You would make a good replacement for her.”

Responding to the Twitter user, Nicki replied: “*coughs*,” followed by a weary face emoji.(sic)
Nicki went on to share the article on her Twitter page, writing: “Perhaps I’ll take @LucyAlexanderTV with me next time I film #WantedDownUnder.”
Lucy replied: “Can you make me that promise? I’d hold your lip gloss whilst doing your ptc’s [piece to cameras].”
The former Pop Idol judge has been presenting the show since 2009.
Lucy previously hosted Homes Under The Hammer alongside Martin Roberts and Diob Dublin for 13 years.
“When I first started that, we were scratching around for properties, and then ahead of the second, people would actually come up to you!”
On The Customer Is Always Right, Lucy takes a look at products created by entrepreneurs, who face a panel of opinionated consumers and YouTubers.
Earlier this year, she told Express.co.uk that her decision to leave Homes Under The Hammer “wasn’t taken lightly”.
She revealed: “I got offered lots of other jobs on Channel 4 and I literally have had a crazy year after leaving.
“I moved on and I did four different TV shows for Channel 4. It was just a time in my life that I was really ready to do that.”
On a potential return to the show in the future, she added: “It was a huge, huge, huge part of my life that I loved so much and still love and never say never.”
She went on to say leaving the show felt like she had “divorced” her long-term co-star Martin Roberts.
Homes Under The Hammer continues today at 10.45am on BBC One.
