Royal Ascot viewers convinced Big Narstie smokes huge spliff during live ITV interview, leaving them in stitches

ROYAL ASCOT viewers were convinced rapper Big Narstie was smoking a huge spliff during a live interview – leaving them in stitches.

The grime artist and TV star has a horse named after him running in the 5pm race on day three of the prestigious meeting.

But all eyes were on what he had between his fingers during a brilliant chat with ITV presenters Oli Bell and Chris Hughes.

Eagle-eyed punters were quick to photo Big Narstie’s accessory, posting the snaps online.

And the man himself had them cracking up – especially as his interview came within 15 minutes of a very different chat with the Duchess of Cornwall.

ITV racing posted a clip of Big Narstie’s interview online, but edited out the very start where he was seen smoking.
