Shaun is no stranger to having issues with sneezing live on air and on Tuesday afternoon, he was once again hit by a tickly nose. Bringing a deep breath and holding his hand to his mouth, Shaun paused for several seconds as viewers remained with bated breath for him to let it go. Though Sneeze fans were disappointed as Shaun eventually removed his hands from his mouth and looked embarrassed at the camera after the feeling diminished.

He told viewers: “I think I’ve got away with it.” The moment was then posted on Twitter, with one viewer describing it as “the most British thing I have ever seen.”He has often seemed as surprised as the viewers watching when he has the need to sneeze and it is not the only time his actions have gone viral.
