Davina McCall was scolded by Phillip Schofield on This Morning on Thursday for using a 'banned' word.

The former Big Brother presenter, 52, took over for Holly Willoughby for her second day of absence on Thursday from This Morning.

However, Davina's appearance hosting the ITV morning show wasn't without some funny moments with co-host Phillip.

Having already been told to not "patronise" Phillip during a baking segment with chef Phil Vickery, Davina did another thing that appeared to earn Phillip's ire when she said a 'banned' word on the show.

The moment came during a fashion segment with style guru Gok Wan who showed off a selection of boots, one of which was available for £26.

Davina noted on seeing them: "I love the boots, I like all the really cheap shoes – it's so good!"

However, Phillip noted that they do not use the word "cheap" to describe products.

He corrected her: "Budget, budget. Never cheap, never cheap."

Gok then exclaimed: "Affordable!"

Davina swiftly apologised for the mix-up, saying: "We're not allowed to say cheap? Sorry, I don't know the words. I'm just happy they're under £30!"

The awkward moment came after the pair took part in decorating gingerbread houses with chef Phil Vickery who was quick to praise Davina's handywork.

Phil said: "You are looking fantastic, look at that!"

Then, leaning over to look at Phillip's house, she said: "Oh that's lovely! That's actually quite classy! You look quite proud of yourself."

A clearly competitive Phillip responded: "It's quite simple… don't patronise me!"

The awkwardness of the exchange clearly was not lost on Phil Vickery, who commented after a brief silence: "Oh dear."

The exchanges come after the Daily Mirror revealed a major shake-up at This Morning, which will see longtime hosts Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford replaced on Fridays by Allison Hammond and Dermot O'Leary.

Some fans of the married Eamonn and Ruth have threatened to boycott the show after news of their axe hit the headlines.

This Morning continues on weekdays from 10am on ITV.
