The Irish actor led a heavyweight team of A-listers on the couch on BBC One, joined by Kate Winslet and Julie Walters and 50 Cent.

And while he was on promoting his role in the new Steve Jobs biopic, Jobs, it was a story about 2011's Jane Eyre that won the night.

Fassbender explained that one of the horses would get aroused whenever he would used him for a scene. And well...

"He used to get quite aroused whenever I would get on his back," he laughed.

"Dan, the horse handler, had to go on it, to give it a little trot so he'd retract it back in and it'd be good to go..."

When current co-star Winslet revealed she keeps her Best Actress Oscar (for 1997's Titanic) in her bathroom so that guests can make pretend speeches in there, he said he never bought into his own Oscar nominated for 10 Years A Slave.

"I never really prepare speeches, I probably should looking back on some of the speeches that I've made," he added.

"Especially a best man speech that I made which was awful. I just went blank. It's okay - they're  divorced now."
