This Morning: Miriam Margolyes makes Phillip Schofield blush with very cheeky comment about his sex life

Oh Miriam!

National treasure Miriam Margolyes had Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby in stitches after making a comment about Philip’s sex life on This Morning.

Miriam, 80, appeared on today’s This Morning (November 15) and was providing listeners with some advice.

In the section of the show called ‘Ask Miriam’, viewers phoned in and asked Miriam for her counsel.

The actress is well known for speaking her mind and not holding back, so this section was always going to be entertaining.

“I think you should wait for sex,” Miriam said. “I don’t think it should come immediately. It should be arrived at. Eventually. Not like you Phillip, but you know, sort of wait for it.”

This prompted even more laughter from the presenters, with Phillip protesting: “I don’t know what that means!”
