The presenter wished the ITV show had been filmed in the dark

Phillip Schofield has poked fun at his “hideous” outfit choice during last night’s 5 Gold Rings.

The 58-year-old presenter recently returned to the hit ITV game show, which sees its contestants go head to head over five rounds for a huge cash prize.

During Sunday (November 30) evening’s instalment, Phillip was left questioning his silky shirt and reached out to ITV stylist David O’Brien.

Thankfully, David saw the funny side and replied: “Omg! That bloody shirt…

“It didn’t and doesn’t look like that in the flesh. I’m blaming lighting.”

A second said: “It was an interesting one.”

Another added: “The buttons on the shirt are really shiny nothing wrong with the shirt though.”

What else has Phillip been up to?

The episode comes days after Phil admitted he was at “breaking point” over coronavirus lockdown restrictions.

The father-of-two made the admission as he and fellow daytime host Holly Willoughby hosted a debate on This Morning last week.

As they picked over the pros and cons of making festive plans during a global pandemic, Phil insisted he’s “had enough” of being ground down.

He explained: “Everyone’s at breaking point. I know I am, actually, as a matter of fact.”

Turning to Holly, he went on: “I am quite happy to speak for a lot of people and say I’ve had enough.

“I will follow the rules, but I’ve had enough. As far as everyone’s mental health is concerned, taking a little slice of Christmas is going to be good for everyone.”
