The 75-year-old, who was born in Limerick, has presented numerous television and radio shows over the years and remains popular with audiences for his humorous style.
Faced with a montage of his career, he quipped to presenters Marvin and Rochelle Humes: "Frankly, I don't want to see those pictures ... of a much younger man!"
Among his highlights are the 33 years he has spend hosting Children In Need to raise vital funds.
"It is the most important thing I've ever done on television and it has an enormous amount of affection," he says.
Now Sir Terry has released a book, compiling the articles he writes for the Sunday Telegraph.
"You've got to do something when you're a retired old geezer, sitting at home waiting for the muse to land in me head," he says.
"So I've written this thing called Something For The Weekend."
But, not surprisingly when faced with a broadcasting great, relative newbies Marvin and Rochelle are almost more interested in picking up a few tips.
"Any advice for us?" Marvin asked.
Sir Terry nodded. "Don't do it. Get a proper job."
