Trying not to laugh, Phillip, 56, told viewers: “Here is a special one. This will actually get us all in trouble. This is our boss, Martin Frizell, the editor of This Morning. Look at him!”

Holly, 37, chimed in: “Look at him! Super cool!”

She then put one hand to her earpiece and quipped: “We can’t possibly tell you what we’ve just had said in our ear!”

Phillip continued to stare at the photo: “Look at you! With your leather jacket and your trendy shades.”

Holly then joked to viewers: “Well, it’s been really nice knowing you all. We’ll probably have been fired by the end of today’s show!”

Phillip got in on the joke, suggesting they didn’t need to wait until the end of the show for that decision to be made!

He laughed: “Oh, yes, indeed we have!”

“We have?” asked Holly.

Phil replied: “Yes. Should we finish it or go now?”
