Phillip Schofield was astounded by a superfan he arranged to meet on Thursday’s This Morning.
The presenter spoke to Siobhan from Dundee via video link after an email she sent complaining about a life-size cardboard cut-out of him never arriving went viral.
Amused by the story, the 56-year-old suggested Siobhan come and see him for real at the This Morning Live show in Birmingham later this month.
“Yes, that’s very exciting!” Siobhan exclaimed accepting the invitation.
She then left Phillip and co-host Holly Willoughby gobsmacked when she added: “I’ll bring my Tena Lady just in case!”
The pair were reduced to fits of giggles by her remark about incontinence pads as Siobhan apologised for being crude on morning telly.
Still laughing, Phil told her: “You’re my kind of girl!”
Siobhan came to the attention of the ITV show after she wrote an email to a cardboard cut-out company complaining that her Phillip order had not arrived on time.
She told Holly and Phil today she’d placed the order after splitting up with her boyfriend and “needing a man to go out on the town with.”
“There was only one option – the silver fox himself,” she said of her choice.
But she continued: “It didn’t arrive! I was sat waiting for it all day and was excited about all the romantic places we could go.”
“I was looking forward to it!” Phil joked.
After Siobhan’s tongue-in-cheek complaint to the company concerned went viral, they apologised in good humour for her “heartbreak” and offered to send her another.
Since then, she’s taken “Phil” to the cinema with her and to the pub. But it seems he had one too many on that occasion, as he came home legless!

“I am terribly flattered and I absolutely love it, we have to meet for real now, surely?” Phil said, promising to arrange for Siobhan to get to This Morning Live so they could have a selfie.
“I promise he won’t be legless then,” Holly told her.
