Phillip Schofield, 58, filmed behind the scenes on This Morning, as he explained that he almost made a “fool of himself” on TV by nearly pronouncing a rude word. The ITV host jokingly added to co-host Holly Willoughby, 40, that if he had in fact said the curse word, he would have immediately “resigned” from the show.
Nearly made a fool of myself
Phillip revealed: “I just nearly made a fool of myself on television.”
He panned the camera to show the crew on set.
The father of two continued: “They are all here, full support from the crew, when you say the word cluster, and it should be cluster flies, but you nearly follow it with something else… Nearly.”
A camera man responded: “Nearly!”
Phillip added: “Everyone thought it.”
He then zoomed in on Holly, who could not hold her laughter in at the near mishap.
She replied: “So close, one of your closest yet.” Before going on to warn: “Don’t say cluster followed by something beginning with F!”
Phillip confessed: “Nearly resigned!”
The co-hosts looked smartly dressed for the occasion, as Phillip appeared dapper in a blue shirt while Holly stunned in a white dress.
It comes as the 58-year-old admitted his marriage to Stephanie Lowe is still currently a work in progress.
In a new interview with BBC Radio Five, he divulged: “We love each other massively.
“We are a loving family, that hasn’t changed… It’s us four but different.

“We are a work in progress. I’ve been very honest about all of this and there’s no question, we have to pick our way through this daily as a family.
“And that’s what we are doing. We are making our way through very unusual and unexpected waters.”
When asked how he feels after coming out as gay, Phillip answered: “I am OK, I am still a work in progress.
“I still have to come to terms with my life and with me.”
The ITV star shared that it was difficult to make such a revelation just weeks before the country was plunged into lockdown.
He added: “It hasn’t helped that what I wanted most of all was what I wanted was to see my mates and have a drink and go out for a meal and have a hug…
“As I came out the world went in. Talk about the worst possible timing. There are lots of things I miss.
“I miss going out and seeing my mates and having a pint and saying how are you doing.”
This Morning airs weekdays on ITV at 10am.
