The pair were staying on Thursday night before an appearance on BBC Ontbyt yesterday morning.
On the show, aanbieder Charlie Stayt asked the pair if sharing a name could get confusing.
The astrophysicist said: “They wouldn’t check me in.
“I had to change my name.
“They couldn’t do it on their computer system.
“They didn’t believe me.

“I got a picture up on my phone and said ‘look, this is Brian Cox, he’ll be coming later, and then this one…’ and he said, ‘I know neither of you, I don’t watch television’.”
Earlier this yeat actor Brian gesê: “It annoyed me initially – but has been such a great lesson – to find someone who is extraordinarily successful with the same name as me.
“It irked me at first, then I thought, it’s not important.”
