Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield have a pig of a day
IT WASN’T Holly and Phil’s morning as they welcomed a pig into the studio to predict the winner of tonight’s football match — and the hog proceeded to get ‘a little nippy’.
Mystic Marcus was invited on to the This Morning set to give his verdict on whether England will beat Tunisia by indicating his preference for apples stuck with flags of both countries.
But despite the fact he was on a leash firmly attached to his handler, neither Phil nor Holly looked comfortable next to the creature.
In fact, Holly opted to get as far as away as possible — making a dash for the kitchen area of the studio — Phil revealed.
A scared looking Schofield said: ‘The reason Holly is at the other side of the studio is that he’s not massively happy currently, so he can be a little nippy can’t he? Which is great right next to my skinny legs!’
And Mystic Marcus wasn’t too keen on playing ball either, initially refusing to take an interest in either side’s apples.
His handler said he was ‘just starstruck’, but Holly wasn’t taking any chances, staying put on the other side of the studio and even suggesting they ask a banana its opinion instead.
Eventually, however, the hog got his head in the game and started chowing down on the apples with English flags in them, which should mean a victory for our boys tonight.
Looking visibly relieved that the oinksome segment was over, Phil admitted: ‘Well, I didn’t think that would come together!’
