He's the silver fox of This Morning but over the weekend Phillip Schofield shocked fans by sharing a throwback photo on Instagram. A young Phillip was pictured tanned and fresh-faced, but the most surprising feature? His dark hair. "Who is THAT guy!!!! (his hair wasn't brown even then!!)," Phil joked, managing to surprise even himself.

Fans, naturally, loved the photo, with many reminiscing about Phil's earlier days on TV. "You're still my guilty pleasure! I've grown up watching you on television and you just keep getting better and better, you're my silver fox," wrote one fan. "I remember you like this from the broom cupboard years. Fond memories. You're still lovely now," posted another.

Speaking to Radio 1 host Nick Grimshaw on his breakfast show in 2016, Holly explained: "I do think that when we would bump into people, we went to Portugal, and when people would see us in a bar they'd all be looking at us as if it go, 'Oh my God, are you like actually together in real life?' I'd be like, 'No! It's just a coincidence that we're away.'"
