Phillip Schofield and Holly Willougby held back the giggles on today’s episode of This Morning (Wednesday September 9).
The presenting pair managed to put on their serious faces as they discussed vaginas on the show.
What happened when This Morning discussed vaginas?
The presenting couple, who is famed for cracking up during segments, managed to introduce the segment with just a stifled giggle or two.
In the preceding feature, they said that next, they would be discussing “what to keep away from your vagina”.
After the break, they sat down with Dr Philippa Kaye to chat about “what to keep out and what to keep in your vagina or vulva”.
Phil, 58, went on to show a new vulva mask, which claims to soothe, hydrate and protect the skin.
What were the vagina products This Morning could not recommend?
Dr Phllippa pooh-poohed the vulva mask, as well as other products like a special brush and laser therapy.
She also disproved a Gwyneth Paltrow favourite, vaginal steaming.
This process involves sitting over a pot of steaming hot water and herbs, and is claimed to clean out the whole womb.
Why did Phillip look horrified?
Dr Phillipa said that women do not need to do this and there’s a risk of burns to the most sensitive of places.
Yoghurt and garlic were also a no-no.
“If you put food inside your vagina it is going to macerate and rot, and could cause infection,” the doc warned.
Consequently, Phil looked horrified.

“To lighten things, how are @Schofe and @hollywills not having one of their giggling fits talking about vaginas?”
BIG well done shout out to @thismorning for great piece on ‘Things you shouldn’t do to your vagina’ There is SO much rubbish out there about vagina “cleaning” products, processes. They don’t need it, they naturally look after themselves!
