Phillip Schofield, 58, and Holly Willoughby, 40, clashed as things got tense over scones on This Morning today. The mum-of-three was left irritated by her co-host as she didn’t like the way he was cutting his traditional afternoon treat.
You’re giving me a hard time
Phil responded “shut your face” to Holly, while preparing to scoff the dessert, as they discussed the latest royal headlines in a suitably British way.
The pair had been debating comments made by Prince Harry on Monday’s show with journalist Camilla Tominey and author Giles Brandreth.
Despite the divisive topic, the presenters found time to enjoy a quick tea break, but Holly was left far from impressed.
During the next segment, she expressed her dismay at the way Phil was cutting his scone and questioned his actions.
She asked: “What are you doing? Why?”
Phil, who grew up in Cornwall, defended his approach over enjoying the classic dish.
He replied: “Shut your face. You’re giving me a hard time for cutting this and…”
Unimpressed, Holly quipped: “It’s fine. Tuck in.”
It comes as the father-of-two had fiercely defended Prince Harry’s comments on Dax Shephard’s The Armchair Expert podcast while on the programme.
Phil spoke with royal reporter Camila as he justified “eloquent” remarks made by the royal while appearing on the US-based podcast.
The This Morning host said a lot of the Duke of Sussex’s comments had been taken out of context, as he continued to speak out about his experiences of life in the palace.
During the interview, Harry described his Royal Family life as “a mix between The Truman Show and being in a zoo”.

Camilla had questioned why someone who wants to have boundaries when it comes to his personal life continues to speak out.
Phil said: “I went into it thinking, ‘Oh shut up Harry’, but I came out of it thinking, ‘Good on you’.
“I thought he was very eloquent when he spoke about mental health.”
The presenter also said he thought “there’s a lot that’s very unfair” over the backlash the Duke has received over comments he made on the American constitution and Prince Charles.
Phil went on: “There are times when some of the things he says are unwise, you don’t want to upset your grandmother because she has just buried her husband.
“But you can’t talk about mental health without talking about your own background.”
Camilla explained she thinks Harry is “perfectly entitled” to talk about his life and be “very candid about his mental health”.
However, she did not think it was wise to make comments about the Queen or to speak out of turn when it comes to the Royal Family.
