Phillip Schofield was forced to apologise after Martin Clunes swore three times on This Morning.

The actor accidentally let slip a string of expletives as he talked about the new series of his show Manhunt while he was on the ITV daytime show.

Schofield didn’t interrupt as Clunes turned the air blue, but his co-host Holly Willoughby clapped her hand over her mouth as she seemed to see the funny side.

“I haven't apologised for each of the bits of bad language, because obviously it would take up far too much time,” he said.

“So what I'm going to do is I’m just going to apologise for all three of them in one.”
