What happened?

“Who is eating what upstairs?” Phil asked.

Holly then confirmed: “Someone is munching in our ears.”

Phil continued:”Who is eating what? What is it?… It’s a biscuit?!”

As the producer confirmed they were eating biscuits Holly dissolved into giggles.

Phil went on to explain to viewers what it’s like when you can hear someone eating through the ear piece.

He said: “I want you to imagine someone sitting right next to you in the cinema, opening a bag of something, right next door to your ear.”

It wasn’t just the munching noise that annoying Phil – he pointed out that him and Holly aren’t even allowed to get a biscuit for themselves due to social distancing.

“We can’t get offered anything? We can’t eat them. Nothing,” he said, laughing before adding sarcastically: “Well I hope you enjoy!”

Boyfriend speculation

At the weekend, Phil slammed speculation he has a boyfriend after posting a picture of him out for a social distanced walk with a friend.

Phil snapped a selfie out for a countryside stroll with a mate but rather than comment on the rolling hills and countryside, some followers were more fixated on his pal.

Phillip snapped back: “That’s what they call family friends who you’ve known for 20 years and who come round to check if you’re OK.”

Alongside the photo, Phillip had tagged his friend – musician and entertainment producer Simon Schofield.

Despite sharing the same surname, the pair are not related either.
