Joey Essex leaves Holly and Phil red-faced after he outsmarts them

Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield were left cringing after Joey Essex managed to outsmart them on This Morning.

The presenters had attempted to catch Joey out, but were left cringing after he used some basic maths.

When asked how old he was, Joey said that he was 28 and would be 30 next year.

Holly jumped on this and said: "No you're not!"

"What about 29?" Phil asked as Holly said he was "skipping a year".

But Joey pointed out that he was 29 this year.

Holly and Phil gasped in shock before laughing awkwardly.


"How did you not realise that?" Joey asked as Holly put a hand over her mouth.

Fans found the moment hilarious, with one tweeting: "When joey Essex out smarts Holly & Phil #thismorning #dontseethatoften."

While another commented: "Phil and Holly have just been outwitted on simple maths by Joey Essex. #ThisMorning."

A third remarked: "Don’t watch the often but Phil and Holly are hilarious especially interviewing Joey Essex #thismorning #daytimetv #shouldbecleaning #shouldbepacking."

This wasn't the only awkward moment today as Phil was left scrambling for tissues after a rescue dog pooed on the carpet live on This Morning today.

The 57-year-old cleared up the poo as he joked that it "we've all done it".

Phil and Holly had been appealing to viewers to find rescue dogs Coco and Chanel a new home.

The two dogs were found in a bag after being dumped by their cruel owner.

But the sad subject matter turned to laughter after one of the dogs pooed on the carpet.

"Oo, we've had a little accident!" Holly exclaimed as she stroked the dog's head. "It happens sometimes when you get nervous on the telly."

Phil grabbed some tissues to pick up the poo and viewers were in hysterics.

One tweeted: "Picks up dog poo. Well it’s nice to have a hobby."

While another quipped: "#thismorning @hollywills @Schofe trying to keep it together with those dogs @thismorning."

A third remarked: " Oh god!!! A dog has done their business on @thismorning's carpet reminding me of the hilarious Donkey time when he did the business too #ThisMorning."
