This Morning viewers slam Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield for laughing during Halloween segment

Some people branded the pair "rude"

Viewers of This Morning have slammed Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield for laughing during a segment about children's Halloween costumes.

The pair were joined by crafting expert Debbie Shore, who showed off her DIY costume ideas by just using a cardboard box.

However, Phil and Holly appeared to get the giggles throughout the segment as children walked out to model the costumes.

As one little boy walked out dressed as a box of popcorn, Holly and Phil burst into giggles.

At one point, Holly was seen burying her face in her hands as she struggled to compose herself.

She told the little boy: "You look great! Good enough to eat."

Later in the segment, Holly was seen fanning herself with her cue card as Phil giggled alongside her.

As the kids walked off, Phil told Debbie: "Well done for battling through that. We didn't help you very much. We were very unprofessional."

Viewers weren't impressed with the hosts' behaviour.

One person wrote on Twitter: "#ThisMorning Holly & Philip so rude, if I was a guest and they spent the whole time laughing at me, I’d walk off!!"

How ignorant were Holly and Phil. Laughing all the way through the children in their Halloween costumes.

Another said: "How ignorant were Holly and Phil. Laughing all the way through the children in their Halloween costumes. Some of the children were getting upset. #thismorning."

A third tweeted: "I wonder [how] Holly and Phil would feel if their children were laughed at like that for no apparent reason??!!!#ThisMorning."

However, others were laughing along with the pair and found it hilarious.

One added: "Holly and Phil cracking up over big popcorn. Hilarious!!" while another said: "God I love when Holly and Phil get the giggles."

A third wrote: "I love holly and Phil when they can’t stop laughing."

The duo were in fits of laughter during yesterday's show when they interviewed Miriam Margolyes and she mouthed the f-word.

As the conversation turned to Miriam's stint in Call The Midwife, Phil mentioned that she can do a pretty good Scottish accent as he revealed the next episode is set in Outer Hebrides.

The 78-year-old star then launched into a Scottish accent and Phil said she had a "touch of the Maggie Smith", who puts on the accent in the Harry Potter films as Professor McGonagall.

Miriam said: "I think my Scottish accent is better than hers. I do. Not that I’m rubbishing Maggie Smith because she’s a great lady. I'm [mouths the f-word] scared of her actually."
