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.
We’ll just leave this here… 🐷😘 @Schofe

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.
