James Martin left This Morning presenters Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby in hysterics earlier today.

The TV chef made an appearance on today’s instalment of the popular talk show to talk viewers through his delicious pizza recipe so that fans could give it a go while at home during lockdown.

However, talk show presenters Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby were slightly distracted during the informative cookery segment, more interested in a new addition in the chef’s kitchen than the food that he was whipping up.

Over the weekend, the TV chef took to his Instagram page to reveal that he had been renovating his kitchen while at home self-isolating during the coronavirus lockdown.

"How big is the wall behind you? How big is that clock?" asked a curious Phil.

But not one to miss a chance to a rude joke, James took the chance to make a suggestive comment, saying with a shocked face, "Sorry? What was that?
