This Morning's Phillip Schofield became embroiled in a heated row with Matthew Wright on Friday's show as they discussed topics including the end of lockdown and going on holiday amid the restrictions.

Julia shared similar views to Phil as she told how she can't wait to go on holiday, with Matthew snapping back: 'Why are we obsessed with going on holiday in the middle of a global pandemic where we’ve had 200,000 infections in the past seven days.'

He added: 'I’d like to go away but now doesn’t seem the right time. Good luck to anybody trying.'

As the two argued over whether it was right to go away within a pandemic, Phil then let his own thoughts be known as he questioned how long the government can keep the country locked down.

Referring to Boris Johnson, he said: 'How long does he think we are prepared to be locked down? I’d say to him the same as you say to these doom and gloom people, "you can't do it to us anymore."'

Matthew then argued back: 'Unvaccinated people become breeding ground of variants, those variants could one day overcome our vaccine regime and we’ll be back to square one.'

With Phil then hitting back: 'Every death is terrible, without question. But the numbers are so tiny. More people are dying from flu now.'

Wanting to get his point across, Matthew argued back: 'Yes but you’ve still got disruptions in businesses, in schools. When people go back...'
