Did you spot it on Sunday?

He’s got more than three decades of presenting experience under his belt, so it’s safe to say Phillip Schofield has had his fair share of on-screen nightmares.

But, being the cool customer he is, he gets away with most of them!

Phil recently appeared on Loose Women with his professional partner Holly Willoughby to talk about the Dancing on Ice reboot.

“After we introduced the judges, we walked down the ice tunnel.

“And we’re walking down the ice tunnel, and as a guy I’m thinking ‘Don’t step on the dress, don’t step on the dress.'”

“We got round the corner and we stood, and Holly turned, and the dress filled EVERYWHERE on the floor.”
