Phillip Schofield had one of his more awkward moments on This Morning, when Ferne McCann started working out inches from where he was sat and he didn’t know where to look next, in fear of incriminating himself.
Phil, 56, was a picture of uncomfortable squirming as flexible Ferne started stretching and bending under his eyes.
The 28-year-old former reality star was promoting her new fitness DVD and decided to give Phil and Holly Willoughby a close-up view of her exercises.

So far, so innocent but when Ferne, who was wearing a crop top and tight leggings started bending over in front of Phil, viewers were creasing up as his face contorted to try and help him not look like he was enjoying it too much.
His gurning had viewers in stitches as they flooded social media with their thoughts on how awkward Phillip must have been feeling, as Ferne showed off her flexibility.

Writing on Twitter , one This Morning viewer wrote: "Phil’s face during those exercises was an absolute picture! #ThisMorning."
Another pointed out: "Think Phil enjoyed that #FearneMcCan #ThisMorning." [sic]

A third viewer thought Phil’s facial workout was hilarious. They tweeted: "@Schofe watching @fernemccann on @thismorning is comedy goId."
There was some empathy for Phillip though, with one viewer writing: "Oh Phil doesn’t know where to look’ #ThisMorning."
The former I’m A Celebrity camp mate was chatting about her new fitness DVD, Fit As Ferne, before giving an intimate look at what can be expected among the workouts.
