Phillip Schofield has revealed he lied to his former co-host Fern Britton in a shock confession.
The This Morning host was talking to Holly Willoughby about "National Sickie Day" – the day where most people will be taking a day off work without permission.
And they even chatted about when they have done similar things, with Holly admitting to being abroad on holiday rather than at work.
But Phil admitted to his "snow sick day" when he called in to pretend he was snowed in, meaning his co-host, "Fern Britton," had to listen to his lies.

Phil admitted that, in 2011, he had a snow day, claiming he could not make it in so he could play in the snow with his family.
He said: "The girls were off and they could have gone to school as well, and yeah, so I said, ‘I’m sorry I can’t get out, I can’t get out.
"We’ve done it but it was a long time ago, 2011, since the last time I did that.
"Fern was furious, she said, ‘I managed to get in,’ I said, ‘It was bad where we were.’"
The pair laughed as he told how "furious" Fern became

He then let out a cackle of delight about his duping his former colleague, as Holly giggled as well.
But fans at home noticed that he may have got a little bit confused by the dates, as Fern was not even at the show when the sick day happened, with Holly taking on her role as his presenting partner since 2009.
One fan thought perhaps the team had got the year wrong, and Phil did in fact tell porkies to his former co-host, saying: "@ Schofe @ thismorning it can’t of been 2011 @ Fern_Britton left and @ hollywills joined in 2009 lol #ThisMorning"
