In tonight’s broadcast, Matt and Alex were discussing pound land’s £1 ring and whether it was acceptable to be presented with one.
Matt said: “For me, it’s a celebration of the fact you have made this commitment to each other. The ring is kind of irrelevant.
“It’s the fact that you’re there together as a couple and you’re showing everybody in public that you’ve got this commitment to each other.
“It’s not what it’s worth, it’s what it means.”
Alex seemed to disagree and revealed she would not want a ring valued at just £1.
Stacey liked the ring and added: “I sort of don’t mind that at all actually!”
Matt then threw it out to the studio audience to gauge their opinions.
After first speaking to a newlywed about her ring, the show then went to a member of the crowd who wasn’t impressed.
She said: “I would be really miffed! I mean, my husband is a right cheapskate for anybody that knows him out there.
“And I would actually put it in his dinner so that he’d end up eating it and then it would hurt coming out the other end.”
As the crowd awkwardly gasped, Alex tried to quickly wrap it up and said: “Oh, brilliant, thank you. I think I agree, if it turns your finger green, it’s got to go.”
Matt could be heard to gasp before covering his face with his hands and the live broadcast turned into an odd viewing experience.
Viewers instantly took to social media in disbelief following the moment.
One fan of the show said: “Someone on The One Show just said she’d make her husband eat a cheap engagement ring and hope it ruined his a** on the way out. I for one welcome our new Prime Minister. #theoneshow.”
“Wow, did that woman really just say she’d hide it in his dinner so it would hurt at the other end??? #OneShow,” posted another.
A third said: “So that woman on #theoneshow would feed a cheap ring to her ‘cheapskate’ husband?”
“A one pound engagement ring, are we ok with this? #theoneshow,” questioned another.
Other viewers discussed the £1 ring, with one tweeting: “#Theoneshow More important things to spend money on than an engagement ring. More #fishing tackle for starters.”
“See I wouldn’t mind my ring being £1 but some people want their rings unique. A big part of the rings is showing them off so if the ring was £1 then loads of women would have it and it would be a bit weird. #TheOneShow,” posted another.
A third added: “#TheOneShow my wife’s #engagement #ring cost £40 in 1976,which was more than enough to pay considering she took it off and threw it as far as she could on more than on occasion (we’re still together).”
The One Show airs weekdays on BBC One at 7pm.
