Excited by the revelation Holly asked Phil if he remembers which episode it was he appeared in.

"Yeah, the one where they keep the scary books in the fridge," Phil answered, referring to the season three episode, The One Where Monica and Richard Are Just Friends.

Phil and Holly are back in the studio this week after a rare foray out and about.

Last week, the pair broadcast live from Downton Abbey and divided fans.

A delighted Holly practically squealed with joy as she and Phil sat on the This Morning sofa in the grounds of Highclere Castle, where Downton Abbey is set.

Not everyone was happy about the 'overkill' on the ITV period drama, which has a film version that is now out in cinemas.
