Martin went on to explain that the websites are usually “shyster” sites.

But the finance guru slipped up on the pronunciation of the word “site”.

He explained: “I call these sites shyster sites, they are quasi-legal. You see them for passports, Visa applications, driving licenses and the DVLA.

“These companies advertise on top of official search terms and have a website that looks legitimate but never claims to be the official source, instead offering to process things for an extra fee on top that you could have got for free or for a basic set price.

Apparently according to Phillip I swore on This Morning just now. Yet I have no idea what I said

“I think these [bleep] are outrageous that’s why I call them shyster sites, and don’t worry that’s not a swear word so we are fine.”

Phil, who was giggling at the time, pointed out: “The word you said before was though.”

Later on, Martin took to social media to address the incident – and appeared oblivious!

He wrote: “Apparently according to Phillip I swore on @thismorning just now. Yet I have no idea what I said.”

In a separate tweet, Martin clarified: “As I noted shyster isn’t a swear word. Phillip suggested I had swore earlier. The common view is I may have said web [bleep] accidentally instead of sites.”

Some followers were quick to point out the incident, while others hadn’t even noticed.
