Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield

Phillip Schofield kisses a pig on This Morning as viewers unimpressed with Holly’s behaviour

Holly wasn't keen on George the pig at all

| Updated:

Viewers of This Morning were left in hysterics today when Phillip Schofield kissed a PIG.

Phil and Holly Willoughby interviewed Ingrid Tarrant, who has swapped her husband for a 15-stone pet pig called George.

But while Phil didn’t mind getting close to George – even giving him a kiss – Holly wasn’t keen and even climbed over Phil on the sofa to get away from the animal.

She said: “I have a little live rule – anything bigger than a medium sized dog I’m instantly a bit wary of.”

As George started to get closer to Holly, she got up and climbed behind Phil to get on the other side of the sofa.

I can’t help it, I’m just not very good with stuff like this.

Holly said: “I’ve seen his teeth, he’s got big teeth.”

The presenter then spoke to Ingrid as Phil entertained George with fruit.

Ingrid explained that her pigs are very hygienic, adding: “They poo and wee as far away from where they live.

“Where home is, they recognise it’s home. If I lived in a bungalow I would definitely let them [sleep in my bed].”

As Phil tried to get George closer to Holly, she admitted: “You’re so wicked! I can’t help it, I’m just not very good with stuff like this.”

Revealing George is “very affectionate”, Ingrid suggested Phil attempt to kiss the pig.

Phil said: “He might bite my face off,” to which Ingrid insisted: “No I don’t think so.”

Phil asked: “You don’t think he will.”

Bending down towards the pig, Phil said: “George… kissy kissy. Kissy kissy George,” as the pig looked up and put his nose against Phil’s mouth.

Holly said: “That’s quite sweet,” to which Phil suggested: “You have a go.”

Holly said: “No way! I’m absolutely fine. I’m sort of getting more fond of him, I just didn’t know what he was going to be like.”

Viewers were in fits of laughter over Phil kissing George.
