This Morning viewers furious as Phillip Schofield says he's 'bored' after nearly hanging up on Spin To Win caller10/28/2020
THIS Morning viewers were furious as Phillip Schofield said he was "bored" after nearly hanging up on a Spin To Win caller.
The presenter, 58, and co-host Holly Willoughby, 39, introduced caller Lauren onto a chaotic segment of their game show.
Lauren managed to answer and give the special key phrase without too much trouble.
But the caller – who was ringing in from a nail salon – provoked a response from the presenters when she didn't appear to celebrate her £750 prize as much as they'd like.
After the hosts have spun the wheel and the contestants are awarded their prize, they always get to answer a question in order to win some extra goodies.
However, before Holly got a chance to read out the question, Phil started wrapping up and hanging up the call – until he was corrected by Holly.
Looking a bit awkward, Phil then joked: "Sorry, I got bored."
Many fans took issue with this and slammed the host for being "rude".
One person said: "Philip is getting very rude with the callers #ThisMorning"
Another added: "“I was bored” bit rude #thismorning"
A third remarked: "When did Philip schofield become to rude to people that come on the show & sassy??? Saying goodbye too early because he “(got bored” #ThisMorning"
Other fans defended him, with one person saying: "Phillip isn’t impressed she’s getting her nails done and neither am i. bloody watch the show all time and someone like her wins and she’s not even watching ffs #ThisMorning"
Meanwhile, others laughed along with him, quoting "I got bored" alongside laughing emojis.
Lauren was asked what show made Anton Du Beke famous.
She correctly answered "Strictly" and went away from the show with £750 and the bag of goodies.
After hanging up properly, Phil said: "She didn't sound that excited, did she?"
Holly jumped to her defence, saying: "I think she was surrounded by other people. She was playing it cool!"
