Jo explained that her partner’s mum often made a fuss out of situations, with Rochelle asking for an example.

The caller attempted to give an example before blurting out: “She’s just a pain in the a**e!”

Phillip, 59, responded: “We got there in the end… she’s a pain in the a**e.”

But as the segment came to an end, Phillip repeated the naughty word once again.

Vanessa asked him: “How many times can we say the A word?”

Phillip replied: “We’re not allowed and I haven’t even apologised yet. Sorry.”


Rochelle, 32, joked: “Soz not soz.”

The group continued to giggle before going to an advert break.

And the moment didn’t go unnoticed with viewers at home.
