This Morning descends into hysterics over Phillip Schofield's "love sausage"

The presenter and Rochelle Humes got the giggles

Phillip Schofield might be in his mid-fifties, but you're never too old for a truly immature joke.

The This Morning set descended into serious silliness on Wednesday, when a shopping segment featured a "love sausage" - and Phil couldn't put it down.

Phil, 56, was joined by singer Rochelle Humes, while his usual partner in crime, Holly Willoughby was poorly - but he wasn't exactly on his best behaviour.

Oh my, that Love Sausage wont put you in the mood for romance...

Discussing food for Valentine's Day this week, the dad-of-two pulled a face about an "M&S Love Sausage," even waving it in the air and staring at the camera as he struggled not to laugh.

The segment - called Valentine's Day Sorted From The Supermarket - featured guest Steve Wilson, who lost control of things when Phil spotted the heart-shaped pork sausage.

The TV presenter picked up the sausage and told the camera: "Happy Valentine's Day" as Rochelle giggled. Steve explained: "This is the Love Sausage. [M&S are] encouraging people to take photos with the Love Sausage on social media with the hashtag LoveSausage. It's a lovely big Cumberland sausage wrapped in truffle bacon."

Rochelle, 29, couldn't stop smirking as she said: "That is a scary hashtag. Love Sausage is a very scary hashtag."

Phil took a bite, joking: "I'll wait for those memes. Nice though."
