Jordan begins by explaining: ‘Ah, we did all sorts. We went on a building site and the tractor was there…they left the keys in the tractor.’

Keith says: ‘Oh, you weren’t driving it?!’ and he quickly says: ‘No, we were doing this [gestures moving the steering wheel] and it swung round so we had to duck.

‘Next thing you know, we were hanging onto it. Just 14, 15-year-olds.’

Vick then chimes in: ‘Well yeah, I lost a finger. You don’t even notice.

‘I was in Zimbabwe, I was in a shop and there was all these little statues of Pigmy warriors and I was like three years old so I was like, “I want to be their friend, I want to give them a hug!”

‘I gave them a hug, it fell against another one, scissored, chopped it straight off.’

She was spotted wearing her diamond engagement ring at the Chelsea Flower Show in May after Calvin popped the question at his Ibiza farm, Terra Masia.

A source told MailOnline at the time: ‘Calvin and Vick’s relationship has moved quickly but they’re smitten with each other.’

She is not the only one with a subconscious insecurity however, as Keith shared: ‘I’ve got no toenail on my big toe and when I go on holiday and go to the beach, I put that toe in the sand.’

Keith is joining celebrities as they head out on fun-filled shopping trips where he uses his unique interview style to ask the questions no one else dares to ask.

This week he goes shopping for homeware with singer Tom Grennan and budget fashion with Radio 1 presenters Vick and Jordan.

In another clip, Jordan asks Keith a very personal question leading to a hilarious conversation about waxing.

‘You know what I once went for a wax, and the lady doing it, she was like, “I’ve waxed a few celebrities in my time, and you know what, you look just like Pixie Lott!” Vick told a dumbstruck Keith and Jordan.

Shopping With Keith Lemon continues tonight at 10pm on ITV2.
