Phillip Schofield demands change to This Morning as he silences Holly Willoughby

Philip Schofield demanded a change be made to the This Morning format as he took a swipe at co-star Holly Willoughby.

The popular TV host called for calm during Friday's Spin To Win after one unlucky caller incorrectly answered her phone by saying "hello" instead of the correct catchphrase "yabba dabba doo".

Phillip, 59, quickly questioned if the reason why the contestant had failed to answer her phone correctly was because of the Christmas music playing in the studio being too loud.

He then demanded the music – East 17's iconic Christmas No1 Stay Another Day – be turned down, much to the disappointment of Holly.

His co-star then proceeded to maintain her protests about keeping the music in play for the festive value, as she feigned singing along with an inspiring air-microphone.

Philip said: "I've got a feeling… can they hear the music when they pick up the phone?"

Holly then responded: "Do you think it's putting them off?"

Philip continued: "I think the music might give it away."

Miffed, Holly retorted: "We always play music of sorts. It's Christmas. And I like this one."

An indignant Philip ignored her pleas and demanded: "Dip the music a little, dip the music."

He then nipped at Holly adding: "I know it's going to stop you singing, thank God."

Holly, however, refused to be beaten as she went into full singalong mode and defiantly claimed: "Nothing can stop me singing."

The 40-year-old mum of three then pulled out all her best moves as she lip-synched along to the Christmas classic.

The pair were in high spirits as they hosted their final show before their Christmas break on Friday morning.

Next week the duo will be replaced by Vernon Kay and Rochelle Humes for the holidays as we head further into the festive period.

Teasing her happiness ahead of the show Holly excitedly posted on Twitter: "It’s CHRIIIIIISTMAAAAAS! Final day on @thismorning until Christmas Day… open the fizz!"

This Morning airs weekdays at 10am on ITV
