It's not every day you can 'get high' on your own carbon dioxide at work. But Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield had quite the experience on This Morning today, when they took part in a breathing exercise.
Joined by Dutch life coach and extreme athlete, Wim Hof - who can hold his breath for up to seven minutes - the pair were talked through a breathing exercise that left them rather lightheaded and giddy.
You can see a clip below:
The pair can be seen taking deep breaths in and out for several minutes before holding their breath for an extended period, taking a sharp breath in and then relaxing back to normal.
The process looked seriously intense, with Wim explaining: "Whenever you feel different, breathe into it, don't worry, your mind is with the breath."
During the sharp breaths, Holly and Phil appear to look a little uncomfortable and lightheaded, but with Wim's guidance, the pair keep going.
And after several minutes of the sharp breaths, the duo were required to hold their breath for an extended period, before breathing in once more and then relaxing.
"Stop the breathing, close your mouth, just watch, witness. We have blown out the carbon dioxide, witness, relax [...] you are a little bit high.
"That's what I always say, get high on your own supply."
And once the exercise was complete, Holly and Phil seemed completely blown away.
"Oh my god," said Holly.
"I feel like I shouldn't be on the telly right now."
Meanwhile, Phil added: "It feels good, it feels good. That does feel really good."
Viewers at home found the whole thing mega impressive, with one tweeting: "Well Wim's breathing exercise on #ThisMorning got me all new levels of high! Amazing amazing!"

While another said: "My cat really didn't like me doing the breathing exercises but I did although I was a little too lightheaded."
One joked: "Did we really just watch Holly & Phil have a breathing orgasm on TV."
"We're actually just watching people breathing," said another.
You can watch the full clip of the exercise over on the This Morning YouTube channel.
