Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield were unable to keep their true feelings under wraps when a This Morning debate about the Easter bunny took a rather serious turn.
Holly Willoughby And Phillip Schofield Struggle To Keep A Straight Face As Bizarre Easter Bunny Debate Takes A Serious Turn
On Tuesday morning, the two chaired a discussion between Nick Ferrari and Vanessa Feltz, following New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern’s public assurance to the children of New Zealand that the Easter bunny was an “essential worker”, and could therefore still pay them a visit.  View this post on InstagramA post shared by Jacinda Ardern (@jacindaardern) on Apr 6, 2020 at 1:52am PDTHowever, during the conversation on This Morning, it emerged that Nick was less than impressed with Ardern’s comments.
After Phillip pointed out that “young people do get anxious” during times like these, the LBC presenter responded: “My problem was the expression ‘frontline worker’.”Phil then pointed out the term used had actually been “essential workers”, to which he continued: “Of course the Easter bunny should still come… [but] when I stand and applaud every Thursday at 8pm, I am not applauding the Easter bunny. I’m applauding the nurses and the doctors and the anaesthiatists and the ambulance drivers.
“And the idea that the Easter bunny… of course I want the Easter bunny to come this weekend, of course the Easter bunny will come… but let’s not liken them to [people] who are putting their lives on the line 24 hours a day.”
This was apparently a turning point for Holly, who had to hide her laughs behind her arm, while Vanessa insisted: “I think [Ardern] was using a little light humour, which is vastly needed at this time.”Phillip concluded: “We’ve been on this show a long time, but that is possibly one of the most bizarre conversations I have ever had.”
Although the coronavirus outbreak has hugely impacted the TV industry, This Morning is one of the few daily shows that is still airing as usual, albeit with a few changes.
To comply with social distancing guidelines, its hosts must now remain at least two metres away from one another, while most interviews have been happening over video-link rather than in the studio.
This Morning airs every weekday from 10.30am on ITV.READ MORE: 49 Times This Morning Outdid Itself In The Ridiculous Stakes 29 Classic TV Moments We'll Never Not Find Hilarious Why Phillip Schofield And Holly Willoughby Are Ultimate Friendship Goals
