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".

"One of the other points that was being made was that being trans was in vogue and a f*g – fad."
Phil looked a little awkward, tutting after quickly correcting himself – but it wasn’t quick enough for viewers to flock to Twitter to comment.
One tweeted: "Bit of a whoopsie there Phil #thismorning."
While another commented: "Phil talking about gender identity on #ThisMorning and accidentally said ‘f*g’ instead of ‘fad’ you could see the disappointment on his face."
A third wrote: "That was unfortunate Phil #ThisMorning."
