THIS Morning’s Phillip Schofield kicked off the week on fiery form today as he took a guest to task over comments on Prince Harry.

The 59-year-old later cheekily told co-host Holly Willoughby to “shut her face” in a debate on how to cut scones.

During the daily news segment, the topic of Harry’s latest interview – on a podcast with American actor Dax Shephard – was raised.

Phillip quickly launched into a rant about the coverage of the chat, saying: “I thought the podcast was shockingly done, they are dreadful interviewers. Just shut up and let him speak. So I didn't think that was any good anyway. 

“What was interesting was that when you listen to the full podcast you see the headlines. When he was in the Truman Show – big headline, no he was fed that line and then he repeated it.  So there was a lot that was very unfair.

“I thought he was incredibly eloquent over mental health and I went into that podcast thinking ‘oh harry, do shut up’ and came out of it thinking ‘good on you’.”

Guest Gyles Brandeth joined in and said: “I’ll just chip in to say one of the reasons he’s in trouble with America is for saying the 1st amendment is bonkers. Calling it bonkers is not a good idea.”

But Phillip quickly interrupted him to set him straight, saying:  “Giles, giles, I have got to say he didn’t say that. When he was asked about it he said ‘i don’t want to comment about the first amendment, i have only just arrived here, it’s really quite confusing for someone like me, it’s a bit bonkers’.”

During the next segment, Holly expressed shock at the way Phillip was cutting this scones.

She exclaimed: "What are you doing? Why…"

Phil, who grew up in Cornwall and is clearly passionate about scones, replied: "Shut your face. You're giving me a hard time for cutting this and…"

Holly told him: "It's fine. Tuck in."

Phillip said: "I have every intention of doing exactly that. If you put a scone in front of me then I am definitely going to do it the Cornish way."
