This Morning presenter Phillip Schofield was left rather embarrassed on today's show (October 5) after a caller revealed that they had met before – and Phil refused to sign an autograph for them.
The awkward moment occurred when viewer Mike took part in the Spin to Win competition and started chatting to Phillip while his prize was being revealed.
Mike told Phillip that they had met once before when Phillip was doing a hot air balloon ride in Bristol, with the caller's daughter running after the host to ask him for an autograph.
But unfortunately it hadn't been the best encounter, with Mike explaining: "We followed you, my daughter ran to the balloon. She tells me this story many many times. She asked you for your autograph and you said you were too busy."
Phillip looked rather mortified by the revelation, particularly when the show's crew started jokingly booing him. While his co-host Holly Willoughby showed off the prizes Mike had won, Phillip rushed to grab a piece of paper and started scribbling.
He then held up the paper to the camera, revealing a note and autograph he had just written out which said "Not too busy this time!", and promised to send it with the prize. He even wrote it on a page of his script, showing just how committed he was.
Mike didn't seem to harbour any hard feelings, as he laughed and called the autograph "brilliant".
Viewers were rather amused by Phil's awkward moment and his response to the situation:
