This Morning fans poke fun at ‘filthy’ Phillip Schofield as he uses ‘worst chat up line’ on chef

Viewers took to social media to poke fun at the presenter

This Morning host Phillip Schofield has been mocked by viewers, after using the “worst chat up line” on Joseph Denison Carey.

The 22-year-old chef appeared on the ITV programme earlier today (October 25) to make his traditional spaghetti bolognese.

Ahead of the demonstration, Phillip and co-host Holly Willoughby sat down with Joseph for a quick chat.

Joseph explained that he only uses basic ingredients in the Italian dish.

He said: “I take out the things that do not belong there, like peas and garlic.”

Phillip, 59, asked: “What have you got against peas? Have you ever had a pea sandwich?”

The presenter then said: “Sometimes it falls out, but it’s got to be with white bread and proper butter.

“Best thing ever… believe me. You’ll thank me for it!”
