Phillip Schofield: ‘WTF!’ This Morning host reacts to blunder after ‘career highlight’

Phillip Schofield, 57, has expressed his shock after butchered lyrics to guest Steve Harley’s performance appeared on-screen. Singer-songwriter Steve performed 1975 hit Make Me Smile (Come Up And See Me) on the ITV show today.

One of the highlights of my career right here

However, things didn’t go quite to plan after a viewer shared the performance online with the live subtitles. 

In the song, Steve sang: “Come up and see me, to make me smile. 

“Or do what you want, run on wild.”

But the eagle-eyed viewer spotted an epic gaffe with the titles as they shared it on social media, joking that they had been “singing the lyrics wrong all these years”.

The subtitles read: “Come up and see me, Pakistan me smile.”

Clearly in hysterics, Phillip shared the tweet with his 4.5 million followers. 

“Wtf…mind you, they do have to type very quickly,”(sic) he wrote.

The TV star also added a string a crying and laughing faces to highlight his shock.

Supporters of the host were left equally amused over the revelation.

One user joked: “Well you learn something new every day.”

Another added: “Oh wow, that’s hilarious!”

A third pointed out: “It’s probably some speech recognition trickery.”

The hilarious tweet came after Steve shared a snap alongside Phillip.
