Despite being the battering post of numerous ‘This Morning’ guests, it still can’t be easy to be called a ‘phony’ live on air. The 74-year-old celebrity Big Brother housemate, Kim Woodburn showed complete outrage after Schofield’s never-ending sarcasm. By the end of the show, this hilarious interview became too much for the critiqued Kim, resulting in her yelling out “You big phony!” live on air. Rage-monkey much? Her antics earned her a ban from the show but rumors are circulating concerning her own attempt at live TV.

The two-hour 25th anniversary special of ‘This Morning’ saw the reunion of the new hosts and the old, a host of prominent celebrities and a streaker during the weather report! Some hapless copycat attempts to mimic a streaker who interrupted legendary weatherman Fred Talbot in 1995. His attempt fails horribly, leaving this birthday-suit-clad clown looking like nothing more than a drunken buffoon. If you listen carefully, at around 22 seconds in you can overhear Holly making a similar reference.

Once it’s in, I love it!

Holly broke down into yet another uncontrollable fit of laughter when she presented celebrity chef Gino D’Acampo in 2015. The last thing that anyone expected from this mother-of-three was a sexual innuendo that would bring the cast, crew and viewers to stitches. Yet this is just one of many double entendres uttered by Holly, as she gets conned by double-speak quite frequently! This time around she was reluctant to try the mussels and tomatoes being prepared, but eventually gave in and tasted the food. As she explained “One it’s in, I love it” she realized what she had said and all three presenters burst into laughter.

Just Stay and Do Me

Illusionist Colin Cloud managed to conjure quite an illicit innuendo from Holly, during his appearance on ‘‘This Morning’’. After mysteriously deducing Phillip’s injured toe, Holly proclaimed “Oh please do me! I know we haven’t got time to do it now but can you just stay and do me?”. Despite this being a reference to wanting her mind read, the utterance caused a roar of laughter, sending this clip viral in no time.

In 2016, Holly & Phil decided to arrive on set fresh from the National Television Awards, giving a less-than-sober morning show which beat their last hungover performance. The cheerful hosts appeared in the very clothes they had worn the night before, not doing a thing to hide their “spirited” antics. This booze-fueled fun show was the result of their celebrations on the night before, having won the Best Daytime Show award at the NTAs.

Bondage for Beginners

This insert caused quite a disruption both on-set and across the UK. The controversial roleplay exhibited this dark, “50 Shades of Grey” inspired form of sexual conduct, complete with real life actors to play out the scene. They even included real paraphernalia, the last thing you would expect on a breakfast show! I suppose that this should not be too shocking seeing that ‘‘This Morning’’ has even delved into sex and the aged on-air.

Holly Willoughby is Terrified by the Paranormal

During a show about ghosts, Holly Willoughby becomes so distressed that she breaks into tears. This on-air fear led Holly to reveal that she has a severe phobia of ghosts. She is actually so afraid that she once had to leave home to use a supermarket restroom, due to being alone at home and too afraid to go upstairs to the toilet! Her shock and horror pushed her to walk off set during this episode of ‘This Morning’ despite most of the viewer submitted ghost photos being obvious hoaxes.

What is it Like to Be Shouted at by a Lemon?

Katie Hopkins decided to show her true colors and turn on fellow guest Shona Sibrary. The outburst came after a lengthy string of excuses as to why it is ok to miss your children’s birthdays. Katie comically refers to her verbal onslaught with Shona as akin to “being shouted at by a lemon”. Don’t disagree with this star, she’ll make a nonsensical comparison which would wreak havoc on a playground crowd!

Buried in a Pit of Prostitution

Eamonn Holmes truly dug his own grave when his began questioning self-proclaimed sex addict Crystal Warren as to why she hadn’t turned to prostitution. He led himself deeper and deeper into one of television’s most awkward moments through questioning her “If you need this five or six times a day, have you never thought about making a business of it? Charging for it?” And instead of backtracking, he proceeded to bumble: “Yeah, but I mean if you are not particularly selective, what I’m saying is, why wouldn’t it be a business to you.”

When ex-Atomic Kitten, Kerry Katona appeared in an interview on ‘‘This Morning’’ with Phillip Schofield and Fern Britton in 2008, she was not ready for the “open” questioning which was about to follow. Her uncomfortable interview began with slurred speech and an offer to show the nation her breast augmentation scars. When Schofield could take no more, he began to confront his over her incoherent, impaired speech. This was followed by Britton asking her if she had a problem with alcoholism. This tense situation did not end well for anyone, it did make for good viewing though!

Andrea McLean and ‘The Brazilian’

One would think that Holly would be used to the under-the-belt remarks from co-host Phillip Schofield. The host of ‘Loose Women’, Andrea McLean, appeared on the show wearing a bag over her head, arguably in an attempt to keep a new hairdo under wraps until her show aired. Philip seized the opportunity making a reference to the possibility of her hiding a Brazilian wax. This naughty reference caused Holly’s jaw to drop in shock and brought the whole group to laughter.

Kieron Richardson, of ‘Hollyoaks’ and ‘Dancing on Ice fame’, decided to make it known to the nation that he is gay on the “‘This Morning’” show during 2010. His openness caused an influx of viewer messages in support of his public revelation. Richardson confessed that his close friends and family already new of his sexuality, however this was his first statement to the public. The news came just before Richardson was about to enter a ‘Hollyoaks’ storyline set around his character exploring his sexuality and discovering his orientation as a gay twenty-year-old.

This segment of ‘This Morning’ managed to leave the nation stunned with macabre thoughts scarring the psyche for the entire duration of breakfast. A brave soul decided to go on live television and discuss his collection of “love dolls”. The relationship is purely platonic which no sex involved at all, and that is a story which we are all supposed to believe. Regardless of his motivations, a collection of lifelike dolls owned by a lurching old man is weird enough to freak anyone out!

The Gastric Band Confession

Since she was first accused of lying about her gastric band surgery, aging Fern Britton went on a rampage to clear her name (appearing rather guilty through the process). She underwent the fitment of a gastric band which caused her to lose 5 stone, one full year before she left the ‘‘This Morning’’ show. This lead mass media to assault her for her hiding of the truth of her weight loss. She instead cites the surgery being done for health reasons, not weight loss, as her reason for keeping quiet.

Testing for Testicular Cancer on Live Morning Television

While ‘‘This Morning’’ did manage to top a testicular examination through an on TV rectal exam of Paul Ross, this was the first morning show to put an entire nation off their breakfast. As you can imagine, the rather awkward situation caused a lot of rambling. As the procedure was carried out graphically on morning TV, pointless info such as a man’s left testicle usually hanging lower than his right, managed to turn to stomachs of the onlooking public even more.
