Viewers of This Morning were melting today when Phillip Schofield cheered up a baby on the show.

As Simone started speaking, Oscar became agitated and started whimpering.

Simone: "Oh, you want to play with Phil?"

Phil leaned in and started talking to Oscar as the tot began smiling.

Phil said: "I wasn't talking to you was I? I ignored you for a second didn't I?" as Oscar chuckled.

Holly gushed: "Oh my God, that is the cutest thing."

As Simone finished her demonstration, Phil said: "Thank you Oscar. Thank you very much. Thank you for coming," as the little boy smiled.

That's the sort of reaction I'd give if I ever met Phil.

Holly told her co-star: "You are definitely the favourite."

Viewers were gushing over the adorable moment and shared their thoughts on Twitter.

One person said: "He was gaw-jus! We have our star of the show. What a ray of sunshine on a dull Monday."

Another wrote: "Oh my god - @Schofe and his new friend Oscar - heart totally melted!!! That's the sort of reaction I'd give if I ever met Phil - but babbling and giggly is not so attractive in a 41yr old woman."

A third added: "That was so cute, aww little babbas. The one little baby boy liked Phil didn't he?"

Earlier in the show, Phil hilariously lost it with a viewer during the Spin To Win segment.

Ian managed to answer the phone correctly and win £750 but he then had to answer a bonus question to win a bag of goodies.

Ian, who said he had just woken up, was asked where the Spin To Win wheel had been on holiday but had no idea - despite a series of clues from Phil and Holly.

"Come on Ian!" Phillip shouted, before hinting: "Sphinx about it," referring to Egypt.

Holly sang: "Viva…," referring to Las Vegas, but Ian simply replied: "I don’t actually know."

Phil then yelled: "Oh just say Las Vegas!" before storming towards the camera shaking his fist.
