Phillip Schofield shocks The Morning fans with ‘f*g’ blunder during trans debate

Phillip Schofield shocked This Morning viewers after making a major blunder during a trans debate today.

The presenter, was hosting a debate suggesting whether children are transitioning unnecessarily.

Rochelle Humes and Phil were joined by a doctor, who believed that children were, while a trans activist hit out at his comments.

But Phil horrified viewers after asking about the doctor’s point of view that it was "just a f*g" – rather than saying "just a fad".
