Phillip Schofield surprised viewers (and Holly Willoughby) by kissing a pig live on This Morning today.
TV personality Phillip Schofield kissed a pig. Live on TV. This is something that actually happened today. The presenting duo were joined by Ingrid Tarrant and her pet pig “George”, just one swine in her family of three.
Holly did not seem taken by George, to be honest, she was stood up on the sofa for most of the interview, whilst Phil got stuck in, joining his newfound friend on the floor feeding him apples. ‘He’s super affectionate,’ Ingrid told the Dancing on Ice presenters. ‘I get him to kiss me. You can ask him to kiss you Phil Say kissy-kissy and he might kiss you on the nose.’ Never one to turn down a challenge, Phil dove right in, and luckily (or unluckily) got a little peck on the nose from our new favorite pig.
And, as always, our thoughts have to go out to the “This Morning” viewers, who were probably looking at events wondering if anyone had put anything in their cup of tea. ‘Watching Phil crawl on the floor and kissing a pig is [the] highlight of my day,’ one viewer wrote, clearly enjoying the on-screen shenanigans.
Another added: ‘Phillip Schofield is having so much fun with that pig.’ And to be fair, it looked like both Phil and George the pig were having a grand old time. ‘Did Phillip Schofield just kiss a pig live on TV?’ One bemused viewer asked.
