Trevor Noah hosted the 2023 Grammy Awards on Sunday and commented on Prince Harry's much-talked-about memoir - and one particular detail in it about his nether regions.

In Spare, the Duke of Sussex shares intimate details about his life, including that he suffered from frostbite while on an arctic charity hike at the North Pole in 2011.

Introducing presenter James Corden at Sunday evening's show, Noah commented on the "frost nip" on Harry's "todger" when he said: "James Corden is a 12-time Emmy winner and the host of The Late Late Show. He's also living proof that a man can move from London to LA and not tell everyone about his frostbitten penis."

Ahead of the Grammys, Noah said in a promotional clip: "There's no other room in the world where you get to walk through your Spotify playlists."

In a second video shared on Instagram, he asked a more philosophical question: "Why wouldn't you [watch the Grammys]? Like, who are you? Who are you that you wouldn't want to watch the Grammys? So what, you just don't like music? Is that what it is? 'Like yeah, Trevor, I just don't like joy. I don't like celebrating people.' What do you listen to? Pain? Who are you?"
