Phillip Schofield 'kicks off' seconds before  This Morning went live

‘Everything’s going wrong!’ Phillip Schofield ‘kicked off’ and was ‘screaming’ seconds before going live on This Morning as show gets off to a chaotic start

This Morning got off to a chaotic start on Thursday as Phillip Schofield admitted to ‘kicking off’ and ‘screaming’ seconds before the show went live.

The presenter, 58, joined co-star Holly Willoughby, 39, at the start of the show, where he launched into a rant about not being able to see properly.

Before introducing what was coming up on the ITV programme, an exasperated Phil explained: ‘I’m just kicking off, I’m kicking off. Everything’s going wrong.’

Drama: This Morning got off to a chaotic start on Thursday as Phillip Schofield admitted to ‘kicking off’ and ‘screaming’ seconds before the show went live

To which Holly interjected: ‘You say kicking off but if you heard five seconds ago Phil was actually screaming.’

He then proceeded to explain the situation about his deteriorating vision, telling the camera: ‘If you’ve followed this show for a long time you will know that years ago I had my eyes lasered and they have been incredible.

‘I mean unbelievable. Since Christmas, however, my right eye, I have one distance eye and one reading eye.

‘They have been amazing and your brain gets used to it, and since Christmas, the reading eye is slipping and slipping.’

The presenter then tried to explain what his vision looked like and at that point the camera went blurry, with Phil then shouting: ‘That’s what I’m seeing! 

‘And I just said to Holly, “I want to have them lasered again but the laser place isn’t open!”‘

As a laughing Holly suggested he should simply put his glasses on, Phil hit back: ‘I can’t, I just can’t do it. So anyway I was shouting before I came on the air.’

Phil went on to say how he didn’t have any problems with reading the monitor, but just with his script in front of him.

However, Holly sarcastically quipped: ‘Oh don’t worry, I don’t look at it anyway!’, leaving them both giggling.

Elsewhere, there was further drama on This Morning as roving reporter Josie Gibson accidentally flashed her underwear live on air. 

Josie appeared on the show for a ghost hunting segment where she was sporting a Ghostbusters costume, which unfortunately split at the crotch.

The Big Brother star, 35, was chatting to hosts Phillip and Holly, who were in the studio, when the latter pointed out that her underwear was on show, which led to one viewer alleging she was ‘throwing Josie under the bus’.

Holly seemed baffled by the outfit malfunction, as she first asked Phil if the rip was there before caving and asking Josie.

She said: ‘Now, I’m just going to ask you this, just from an outfit point of view. You’ve got a split there – was that from some overzealous ghostbusting?’

Josie explained that the rip had come about when she was on her way to filming the segment and only realised while filling up her car with petrol. 

This Morning continues weekdays from 10am on ITV.
