This Morning's Phillip Schofield Learns The Hard Way Why You Shouldn't Get On The Wrong Side Of An Alpaca

Holly Willoughby was predictably unable to control her laughter after the incident.

Whenever animals are invited into the This Morning studio, the results are usually shambolic, whether it’s hyperactive skunks, a python on the loose or Brenda Blethyn’s over-friendly pooch.

Thursday’s edition of the ITV show proved no exception, when hosts Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby became better acquainted with a pair of alpacas.

While introducing the show at the end of Lorraine, Phil introduced the host to alpacas Pete and Spitfire over video link, with Holly admitting her co-presenter had already got on the wrong side of one of them.

“You say [they’re] gorgeous, Lorraine, but Pete just spat in Phil’s face,” Holly revealed.

Phillip was then seen telling the offending alpaca: “Don’t do it again! Once is OK, twice is unacceptable.”

Through hysterical laughs, Holly then addressed the This Morning producers, saying: “Can we have a few days with no animals in the studio please?”

It’s been an especially ridiculous couple of weeks for This Morning, with Holly and Phil finding themselves at the centre of a truly iconic moment when an 80-year-old guest took oversharing to a new level, letting slip details of her first night of passion with her 35-year-old fiancé.

A few days later, the duo struggled through a live broadcast after a night of celebrating their 10th win in a row at the National Television Awards.

Last month, they were also unable to control themselves when one viewer won a trip to Edinburgh as part of a phone-in competition, only for it to emerge she already lived in the Scottish capital.

This Morning airs every weekday from 10am on ITV.
