Phillip Schofield couldn’t hold in his disappointment as he was shown a homemade World Cup trophy – which didn’t quite fit the bill.
The This Morning presenter’s smiley veneer was dropped when he was confronted with the craft party piece by Sophie Prescott, who went bright red as he mocked her efforts to make a replica of the trophy.
Sophie showed off her efforts with a football lampshade, flag bunting and football shirt placecards, and for all of those Phil and co-host Holly Willoughby were well and truly on board.
But when Sophie revealed her World Cup trophy, which she said was made of toy stuffing in a cup, topped with a polysterene ball and covered with foil and gold paint, Phil couldn’t hold in his horror.
He squealed: "What in the name of… is that?! What the hell is that?"
Sophie tried to explain it was her worst effort and she whipped it up quickly, but Phil was having none of it.
He turned to the camera to address the England football team, saying: "If you win one of those, guys, don’t bring it home."
Holly tried to remain a little more composed and held it up high, showing how good it could be if you have the right attitude.
But Phil declared: "You had me with all of these, but that’s a pile of old poo."
Despite his clear horror at the fake trophy, Phil did declare he was happy Sophie brought it in as it brought him a good old chuckle.
The presenting pair got well and truly into the spirit of the tournament as Phil wore a headress with England flags, and Holly a hairband, after they saw their favourite contributor, Marcus the Mystic Pig, declare that England will take the win over Croatia in tonight’s semi final.
