While the UK watches and waits to welcome the new royal baby, and find out whether it is a boy or a girl – it looks like Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield already know, thanks to a psychic banana! The pair guessed the gender of the baby on This Morning by cutting into the banana, which allegedly can tell the future. The breakfast show's official Twitter account shared a gif of Holly slicing into the banana, writing: "According to the psychic banana, it's a boy!" This isn't the first time Phil and Holly have used the banana, as they previously took viewer questions about their futures while using the fun trick. According to Holly, if a dot appears when you cut off the end of the banana, the answer to whatever question you ask is no. But if it is a 'y' shape, the answer will be yes!

Holly and Phil think Kate is having a second boy

Holly and Phil aren't the only celebrities who are anticipating the arrival of the royal baby, as others have taken to Twitter to discuss the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's new arrival. Comedienne Katherine Ryan jokily tweeted: "I like the #royalbaby and your baby and all babies! If anything, I want MORE COVERAGE," while weather presenter Laura Tobin added: "So exciting. The next #royalbaby is on it's way. It's a shame they already have a George!"

Good luck."
