Phillip Schofield shares snap as sweltering star strips off and hoses ...

This weekend saw the country swelter on the hottest day of the year, with temperatures soaring to over 30 degrees in some parts. 

But things got too hot for Phillip Schofield as he resorted to stripping off and hosing himself down in cold water. 

The This Morning host, 57, shared a video of himself sunning himself in his garden on over the weekend, with the star debating whether he was 'basking, scorching or roasting.'

Phillip, who lives in Henley-on-Thames, was at first dressed in a blue T-shirt and sunglasses as he kept his followers updated on his day.

Filming himself in the garden, he then gave fans a glimpse of his pond, revealing that his gardener had planted too many bamboo plants.

Using a fun filter which turned his voice squeaky, Phil then remarked: 'I can't decide what's the right word? Am I basking, am I scorching or am I roasting? It's very hot.' 

After applying squirty sun cream to his leg, the Dancing On Ice star then shed his top as the soaring temperature became too much to bare.

He resorted to plugging in his hose pipe and dousing himself in cold water.

Filming himself as he did so, Phillip's joy was clear to see as he closed his eyes in excitement as he cooled down. 

Phillip's fun weekend was in contrast to the last, in which he admitted he was 'sad' amid his feud with Amanda Holden. 

Phillip spoke out for the first time since 'hurtful and untrue' details of his increasingly acrimonious relationship with BGT judge Amanda, 48, emerged last week.

The former Cube presenter posted to Twitter on Sunday: 'The end of another really sad weekend. When you try for 35 years to be the easiest, most fun person to work with and you read such hurtful and wildly untrue stories from nameless "sources".

Following his tweet, Phillip's celebrity pals jumped to his defence with supportive messages on social media.

Former Strictly pro James Jordan , 41, responded: 'It was an absolute pleasure to work with you on DOI.
