Phillip Schofield 'nearly resigned' as Holly Willoughby brands near-miss ...

Phillip Schofield, 58, filmed behind the scenes on This Morning, as he explained that he almost made a “fool of himself” on TV by nearly pronouncing a rude word. The ITV host jokingly added to co-host Holly Willoughby, 40, that if he had in fact said the curse word, he would have immediately “resigned” from the show.
