This Morning’s Phillip Schofield ‘insults’ co-star seconds into show
Phillip Schofield had to make a serious comeback after he ‘insulted’ one of his This Morning co-stars seconds into Thursday’s show.
As he has been every day so far this week, Phillip headlined the ITV daytime show alongside Holly Willoughby as the presenting duo took over the reins. Before the cameras rolled on This Morning, Phillip and Holly had appeared just at the end of Lorraine as their ITV colleague walked through their studio live from his.
They said Steve Wilson was back on the show to test out the best barbecues available this summer, watched an interview with actor Robert Glenister about his new drama Sherwood, and added that Gok Wan would join them with a guide to ‘how to dress like a king.’

But it was another of the hottest co-stars who was just feet away from them after the This Morning headlines launched, chef Clodagh McKenna who was in the kitchen next to them. Phillip cut to Steve outside, stating he had a ‘grilling licence’, as Steve said he had all manner of barbecues – charcoal, gas and portable and even a pizza oven to test .
It was Holly who introduced Clodagh who told her she would make a lemon mint broccoli risotto cream, seeming very enthusiastic about the dish, telling the hosts, “Anyone can make it!”
Phillip then left Clodagh surprised when he commented, “If you didn’t have the whole thing, you could have it as a side for your barbecue,” to which she replied, “What are you saying that my risotto is a side dish?!”
Trying not to dig a hole too big for himself, Phillip quickly replied, “No, no, no!! If you haven’t picked it as your full course,” as Clodagh conceded: “It’s is so delicious with grilled chicken.”
Sitting next to him, Holly joked, ‘You got out of that one’, making a digging gesture, as Phillip replied, ‘I don’t think I actually did!’
