This Morning viewers have been left unimpressed with Phillip Schofield as he was seen snapping at Holly Willoughby on Monday 17 May’s show.

Phillip, 59, was seen telling his 40 year old TV bestie to “shut your face” as a segment about scones became heated.

As Holly and Phil sat in the kitchen with James Martin ready to show off his cooking skills, Holly made a comment about Phillip cutting his scone in half.

As the cameras cut to the pair, Holly asked: “What are you doing? Why…” Phillip then turned to Holly and snapped: “Shut your face! Literally, cut back to you there and you’re giving me a hard time for cutting this and having ready.”

Holly stumbled over her words before she huffed and said: “It’s fine, tuck in, do enjoy.”

As Phillip returned to topping his scone, he added: “I have every intention of doing exactly that. If you put a scon/scone in front of me I am definitely doing it the Cornish way…”

“No butter,” Holly quizzed, which was echoed by James as he said: “Where’s the butter?” Silver fox Phil then added: “No, no, no!”

Fans couldn’t help but react to Phillip’s snappy behaviour on Twitter, sharing their disapproval.

One wrote: “Phil shouting to Holly “Shut Your Face” very disrespectful. Even if it’s just a joke it’s not nice to hear #ThisMorning”.

Another added: “Ooooh, Phil just told Holly to ‘Shut her face’ #ThisMorning”.

But a third joked: “Shut ya face – well said #ThisMorning”.

Meanwhile, other viewers joined in on the debate between Phillip and TV chef James Martin on whether scone is pronounced “scone” or “scon”.

One said: “Scone not scon #Thismorning”. While another added: “James Martin your wrong, it’s not Scon. You wouldn’t pronounce Cone as Con, it’s Scone #ThisMorning”.

While another agreed: “It’s scone S with a cone. Cone doesn’t sound like con #ThisMorning”.

And a third revealed: “I say scon not scone with jam then cream, I'm originally from Dorset #ThisMorning”.

Throughout the show, Holly and Phil who were spotted accidentally breaking social distancing, discussed the new government guidelines allowing people to hug.

As of the 17 May, people are now allowed to hug close friends and family cautiously as rules on social distancing are relaxed in England and Scotland.

But, the duo are not yet allowed to embrace as Phillip, who was recently branded a cynic by Ruth Langsford, explained at the beginning of the show: “Holly and I will have to wait a bit longer for our first hug because hugging isn't permitted in the work place.”

Holly then said: “This is so rubbish”. Phil then added: “Dammit”

“Geographically we can't hug here,” Holly asked. Her TV bestie then explained: “Well, we're outside but this is still the work place. So, what do you do?”

He then offered to send his TV best friend Holly an air hug for the meantime.
