Phillip Schofield stunned This Morning viewers on Wednesday morning when he shouted at a guest.

The 58 year old was covering the ongoing fall out of the American presidential election, which has been left too close to call between current president Donald Trump and his opposition, Joe Biden.

Alongside Holly Willoughby, 39, Phillip interviewed Trump supporter Toni Halt Kramer to get her take on the president's claims he has won the election – despite currently being behind Joe in the race to 270.

Toni told Phillip and Holly: "You've got it all wrong… also I'm at the White House, I go very often, I've known the President for ten years – was before he ran for President.

"The president had an absolute right to say what he said, because we have all been watching all day and all night at the results coming in and if you had followed the numbers…."

Phillip then tried to interject with another question, but Toni wouldn't allow him to speak.

She continued: "You will see that in Georgia for example, which is one of the states that haven't called, he only has the slighted space for Biden to come in, I think maybe two or two and a half percent. He is really strong there…

"He's definitely leading in the other states that you're talking about, but if you look at the previous election in 2016 you will see that the counties, most of them that haven't come in yet, were very strong Trump counties so it will probably take some kind of miracle to bring in Pennsylvania to Biden."

Phillip hit out at Toni: "Do you not listen to anything? Stop! Let me ask you a question."

Toni snapped back: "You're asking and answering your own question, don't look at me like that because I'll look at you like that."

A second added: "Well done to Phillip this morning on his handling of the 'trumpette'. What an absolute tool! Typical trump supporter, asked a question and refused to answer it. Well handled that man!!"

However, another wrote: "Why is Phillip so rude to people? The lady was only talking. She’s an elderly lady who did nothing to him. He obviously doesn't like @realDonaldTrump and it shows he's not impartial."

A final viewer commented: "Shut up Phillip. You've become a right arrogant t**t…"
