Holly Willoughby, 38, and her co-host Phillip Schofield, 57, were challenged to guess the purposes of strange household items by gadget guru Steve Wilson, 44, earlier today. Things appeared to heat up up between the This Morning favourites when their competitive sides came out during the fun segment. When Steve asked them to try to figure out the use for a small plastic clip shaped like a snail, Holly scribbled her answer on a card before announcing: “I’ve written tin opener but what I mean is a tin can opener…” Interrupting, Phillip corrected her: “No, but you’ve written tin opener, so that’s what you said it is!”
As Holly tried to protest, attempting to explain what she had meant, Phillip talked over her: “This is the way it was judged last time, you remember?
“You vote for the rules, you live by the rules,” he joked. “So, you said ‘tin opener’.”
“But tin — a tin can…?” his long-time presenting partner chipped in, her voice high-pitched as she turned to Steve for support.
The gadget expert, however, soon revealed Holly’s guess was wrong anyway, leaving it up to Phillip to scoop the point on offer in the game.
“I have actually no clue,” the This Morning presenter admitted. “So, I figured it’s some sort of vegetable clip.”
“But you didn’t write that, you wrote ‘veg clip’,” Holly hit back, laughing.
