Ben said amidst the chaos: "Hold on a sec - we've been invaded. We've been invaded by the original silver fox."

Susanna added: "Phillip Schofield is here, rocking the grey."

When asked why he didn’t dye his own hair, Phil said: "I got bored and [dyeing your hair] is expensive."

Jake, who dyes his dark hair to cover grey bits, chimed in that he wouldn’t bother if he looked like Schofe.

The 31-year-old singer and actor said he coloured his hair for himself not other people.

We keep saying vain like it’s a negative, it’s not a negative.

"We live in a world now where we have to make ourselves happy," he argued.

"It’s not vain to do something for yourself, it’s like going to the gym.

"If I looked as good as Martin Kemp and George Clooney, I’d let it happen…

"I’ve dyed my hair pink, I’ve had streaks, it’s never about being vain."
