The presenter is severely allergic to bee stings

This Morning’s Phillip Schofield risked his life during today’s show after hanging out with a swarm of bees despite being severely allergic to their stings.

Phil joined co-star Holly Willoughby as they got suited up in beekeeping gear to prevent themselves from being stung.

He told viewers: “Just over there we have our paramedics to ensure that I stay alive because I am severely allergic to bee and wasp stings.”

To which Holly, 36, added: “We had a bit of a chat earlier so I know what to do.”

“EpiPen in the butt cheek but it doesn’t go through clothes so you’ll need a full debagging.”

Viewers watching from home couldn’t believe that Phil, 55, was putting himself in danger.

One wrote on Twitter: “So, @Schofe is highly allergic to bees… and what does he do? Go and mess around with two bee hives. Crazy man. #ThisMorning.”

“Wow @hollywills & @Schofe you are two brave cookies oh my I couldn’t stand there with all the  suit or not! @thismorning #ThisMorning,” said another.

FYI the presenting duo have been making their own ‘Willoughbee Honey’ for a year.

The show has a beehive installed on the roof of the studio.

Meanwhile on yesterday’s show Holly jokingly asked her presenting partner if a viewers’ baby was actually his love child after the baby had a strong resemblance to Phil.

Fan of the show Clare Kelly sent in an adorable photo of her newborn son Noah, who was born with silver hair!

As Noah’s pic popped up Holly explained that Clare’s hubby Steve is convinced Phil is Noah’s dad.

The cameras then zoomed in on Phil’s face and placed it next to Noah and Holly was stunned at the similarities.

She said: “Noah was born on Friday morning and his mum Clare Kelly says she’s had non-stop comments about his silver hair.

“Her husband has even asked if she had an affair with Phillip Schofield.”

She then asked her presenting partner: “Is that your love child?

“There’s is something very similar about that.”

Phil, who is known for his silver hair, then spoke directly to Clare joking: “And what’s more – you promised you’d never tell!”
