This Morning viewers were left baffled after Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield made a series of bizarre comments on Monday 22 March’s episode.

Holly, 40, and 58 year old Phil, who recently told Meghan Markle and Prince Harry to “shut up”, began behaving strangely while chef James Martin showed them how to make choux buns.

Shortly before the segment begun, Holly announced she needed a wee as the pair introduced the competition.

Then, as James, 48, attempted to talk viewers through the recipe, Holly and Phillip kept interrupting with odd comments, with Phil asking his TV bestie: “Have I got a bayleaf in my teeth?”

During the rest of the segment, James demonstrated how to mix the combination of ingredients as Holly randomly said she gets the word “whisk” muddled up with the word “bush” all the time, before attempting to beatbox.

Holly, who recently landed a role on Midsomer Murders, continued to ask James some bizarre questions before saying she had cramp in her leg.

As she declared the discomfort, she stood up and walked around. Holly and Phil were tickled by their antics as they giggled their way through the segment.

But, TV chef James looked baffled and appeared he wasn’t in on the joke.

Some viewers criticised the TV duo for being rude as one said: “What planet is Holly on this morning! #thismorning”.

While another wrote: “did I miss the joke today? Why were Phil and Holly so rude to James Martin during the cookery slot?”.

And a third said: “Holly & Phil this morning so so rude to James whilst he was doing his cooking demonstration, I usually love these two but today was a shocker, James needs a medal.”

But some were convinced that Holly and Phillip are in on a prank, along with Lorraine Kelly who baffled fans with her bizarre behaviour earlier in the day.

One follower tweeted: “It's an Ant & Dec prank, they've been doing it all day on ITV, Lorraine, This Morning, Loose Women etc… it will be on Saturday Night Takeaway in a few weeks.”

Another added: “People getting annoyed because ITV Daytime are clearly doing some sort of prank thing for something seriously need to get a life! Have a bit of fun!!”

While a third said: “What’s going on with itv today! I smell a prank!”

And a fourth speculated: “Someone is in the ears of the ITV lot today… Ant & Dec I think! #Lorraine #ThisMorning.”

As another chimed: “If that was an Ant & Dec wind up on James Martin as some people are saying, it’s gonna need some serious editing cos it just wasn’t funny. #thismorning.”
