Phillip Schofield Looks Bemused As 'This Morning' Runs Feature On How To Use Public Toilets
Joined on the ITV show by hygiene expert Lisa Ackerley, who was live from a public loo in Devon, the presenting pair went about asking all the questions they could muster on the rather bizarre topic.
Check out a snippet for yourselves:
If you're using a public loo, should you sit... or hover?@hollywills asks @HygieneDoctor what we all want to know! :toilet:#ThisMorning ' Live from 10am :point_right: https://t.co/Q7IV485mUn pic.twitter.com/zmojbn7IZX- This Morning (@thismorning) June 29, 2020
At the beginning of the segment, Phil's question was unfortunately drowned out by a rather loud tap.
Lisa then went on to share some of her expert tips on what to do if you need to use a public toilet, to ensure you're as hygienic as possible.
Her first tip was to 'check if the toilet is empty' before entering. Then, she suggested bringing some wipes with you and washing your hands and sanitising afterwards.
We would never have thought of those on our own.
At one point, Holly asked: "Is it ok to sit on the toilet seat? Or should you...hover?".
Meanwhile, Phil was caught on the sidelines stifling a snigger, as he tried to remain serious.
"The most important thing is to do what you feel comfortable with," Lisa replied. "If you're a hoverer, lift the seat up" .
So, there you have it, hoverers. You've been warned.
Taking to social media after watching the scenes, one viewer wrote: "How cringeworthy ... #ThisMorning holding our hands and guiding us into how to use a public toilet safely .. whatever happened to plain old common sense".
As another added: "Sat watching a demo on how to safely use a public toilet... "is it okay to sit on the toilet seat?" - I can't cope, is this really necessary? #ThisMorning".
"How to use the toilet. Come on guys we all know how to sit on the toilet #ThisMorning," a third penned.
As a fourth joked: "Im glad she said all that in a public toilet for clarity! #ThisMorning". LOL.
Ah, This Morning - we love you. Never change.
