Phillip Schofield couldn't help but make a cheeky dig at rival broadcasters during the latest edition of This Morning.

The 60-year-old presenter was back on our screens on Wednesday's (November 30) instalment of the ITV daytime show alongside co-star Holly Willoughby.

They kicked off the programme by welcoming columnist Sonia Sodha and radio host Nick Ferrari to discuss the latest news headlines from across the world.

First topic up for discussion was England's 3-0 win against Wales, leaving the latter to be kicked out of the World Cup competition.

Sonia revealed that she predicted the winning score "on the nation's other broadcaster" before the match.

Phillip cheekily hit back asking: "Is there another one?"

Sonia was left giggling and quickly moved on to discuss other news segments from the day.

It comes after Phillip was forced to step as Camilla Tominey and Matthew Wright lashed over China during Tuesday's (November 29) show.

The discussion got heated as they discussed China's state television, which is reportedly censoring footage broadcast domestically that shows World Cup fans in Qatar not wearing masks.

It comes as the Chinese government continues to battle high-profile protests over its hardline Zero Covid policy.

Sharing her thoughts, Camilla said: "You've got people in burning buildings being told they have to obey zero COVID policies rather than save their own skin.

"I mean, I think it's hugely significant what's going on with China.

"This is an uprising of sorts against President Xi Jinping, who thinks there should only be one voice.

"There should only be one voice, no descent whatsoever, and people living not knowing how the rest of the world is ticking."

However, things took a turn when Matthew aired his opinion, comparing what is happening in China to arresting cyclists ahead of the Olympics.

"It's worth remembering, we arrested 130 cyclists ahead of the Olympics," he said.

"We arrested [them] because it might interfere with the opening," he continued.

Camilla interrupted: "I don't think we can compare that with China. Matt, are you joking?"

"This is ridiculous, we are three years on from Covid," the royal expert fumed. "People are being locked up in their own homes.

"It's amazing that these people have got the courage to protest. The comparison between this country and China is just ludicrous."

"Matt, you need to get real," Camilla raged as Phillip promptly ended the segment.

"Let's jump in and do something else," Phillip said as he tried to end bring the debate to a close.

As Camilla spoke on top of him, the presenter added: "Let's just jump in and do something else. I do want to cover something else."
