What happened?

During the chat, Phil pointed out what appeared to be a pile of presents behind Stephen in his fireplace.

“Stephen, I don’t know if you’ve realised but Father Christmas has been,” Phil said.

The actor clearly misheard him and looked worried as he looked at the camera, asking: “What?”

“Your chimney,” Phil tried to explain as Stephen frantically looked about wondering what was going on.

“It looks like you’ve got a load of gifts,” Holly added.

With sigh of relief, Stephen put his hands to his chest and said: “I nearly [expletive] myself!”
