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.
5 Gold Rings: What did Phillip Schofield say?
Posting a shot of the shirt on his Instagram Story, Phil wrote: “This shirt did not look this hideous until it was under the studio lights… then it was too late.
“@davidobrien75 what have you done to me?”
On Twitter, the star added: “Hahaha @DAVIDOBRIEN75… it’s THAT shirt!!
“(We had no idea how shiny it was until we saw the show promo!!!)”
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.”
But it appears Phil’s shirt was a hit with viewers, with many claiming they loved the silk number.
One wrote: “What’s wrong with shirt it’s class man!”
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 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.”
