The pair often experience mishaps on the show, and Phillip left Holly in fits of giggles on Friday after accidentally making an X-rated slip-up on the show by naming an adult website. In the clip from the breakfast show, a caller named Rebecca was asking about her package holiday with Love Holidays, with Phillip saying: "Rebecca, if Lovehoney said... Love Holidays!
