Former radio star Hamish Blake is known for his funnyman antics.
But on Saturday, Hamish was left red-faced after he made an unfortunate mistake while hosting Nine’s new show Lego Masters.
Taking to Instagram, the 37-year-old reflected on the awkward moment he accidentally applauded during an elimination.

During a tense moment, co-host Ryan McNaught revealed the bottom two from the competition as he called forward Kaitlyn and Marielle.
Staring off into space for a brief moment, Hamish appeared to forget what was happening and started to clap.
‘Actually. No. I shouldn’t clap,’ he said, quickly noticing that it wasn’t a celebratory moment.

Explaining himself on Instagram, Hamish joked: ‘Tune in to see more professional Reality TV hosting from this guy, the world’s most experienced Reality TV host.’
‘To be fair, at this point only the TOP two teams had been called out on the show, and we WERE clapping for those ones. So you, know, you get in a rhythm.’
Due to the clapping, the contestants briefly had hope they have been given a second chance to stay in the competition by having a non-elimination round.
Sad moment: It was when team Kaitlyn and Marielle were booted from the show, with their under the sea design considered ‘all over the shop’ last Sunday night
Taking to Instagram on Monday, Hamish shared a photo of the back sorting area while gushing over the show’s explosive viewership.
‘A genuine thanks to those that watched Lego Masters last night, far more people than expected!’ he began.
Hamish continued: ‘The response has been really heartwarming, just stoked people are having as much fun watching it as everyone had making it, and it really is cool to me that lots of families have made it their show to watch together.’

Hamish explained that the back area wasn’t ‘glamorous’ as he pictured the boxes of colour-coded Lego resting on shelves.
‘This is the less glamorous side of things, the Lego sorting area out the back. I did a lot of my Lego stealing out here when people weren’t looking. Fond memories,’ he wrote.
‘If you look closely you can see the trophy (and a practice one next to it) that one of the teams will take home in, actually, about two weeks cos it’s only a three week run! She’s a quick season!’
Lego Masters, which focuses on competitive Lego building, continues Sunday at 7:00pm on Channel Nine.
