The Muppets' Miss Piggy stormed off BBC's The One Show on Wednesday night after presenter Michael Ball "stepped over the line" with a porcine pun. 

Miss Piggy and Ball had been talking about doing a duet at the time.

"I'd love to sing with you, Miss Piggy," said West End star Ball.

"I would love to do a song with you, Michael," she squealed.

"I think we could all use another inspirational song like your You'll Never Walk Alone," she continued. "That was so touching, by the way."

"We could do a cover of Harry Styles' Watermelon Sugar," Miss Piggy offered. "I mean, food! Who isn't inspired by food?!"

"I'm totally with [you]," agreed Ball - just before the interview went downhill.

"Or... I was thinking we could change You'll Never Walk Alone into You'll Never Pork Alone," he said.

"Brilliant!" said co-host Alex Jones.

But there was silence at the other end of the video link.

"Any good?" asked Ball.

"Ok, I think we're done here," said Miss Piggy. "I think we're done." 

"You stepped over the line there, Michael," said Kermit the Frog. 

"I think it's going to be a solo," said Miss Piggy as she walked off camera. "I think it's going to be a solo after all!"

The Muppets' new series, Muppets Now, premieres on Disney+ on Friday, July 31.
