What did Phillip Schofield say on This Morning?

Holly told viewers at the start of the show: “You’re lucky you have two of us today as I was almost presenting the show on my own!”

Turning to Phil, she asked: “What happened to you today?”

Phil said: “On your phone, you set your alarm. Monday to Thursday. Last week, it went off perfectly.

“This morning, it just didn’t bother!”

He added: “How can that happen?” to which Holly said: “I don’t know how that could happen.”

Phil said: “It just didn’t bother.”

Holly said: “That’s quite scary. So you had a last minute dash?”

You’re lucky you have two of us today as I was almost presenting the show on my own!

Phil replied: “Yes! It’s when you wake up and you look at the time and your heart goes [does a exploding sound].”

Holly reassured Phil: “It happens once a year though and at least you’ve got your one out of the way for the term.”

She added: “So I’ve still got mine to look forward to! Fun.”

Meanwhile, on last week’s show, Phil was left in hysterics when Holly made a rude comment.

The duo were going against each other in a game of ‘Guess the Gadget’ with Steve Wilson on Thursday’s show.

Steve asked Holly and Phil to guess one object, which was a long bag with strings attached.

After guessing wrong, Steve said: “It’s for wet tennis balls.”

Holly then joked: “It’s a ball bag!” as Phil, Steve and the studio burst into hysterics.
