THERE was chaos on This Morning today when a seal started WEEING live on the show – with Phillip Schofield horrified as the camera zoomed in.
He and co-host Holly Willoughby couldn't compose themselves after the blunder, with the pair laughing hysterically as they tried to cut to the ad break.
Freddie the seal appeared from a river bank via video link after becoming an attraction for locals in Teddington.
The show's vet Scott Miller was at the scene, discussing the animal's unique journey to Teddington – when he realised that he'd started urinating behind him.
Scott laughed: "Oh wow! He's having a wee on live TV, that's lovely."
As the camera began to zoom in, it was obvious for viewers to see Freddie in the act – with Phil stunned as he called for the show to give the seal "his dignity".
Phil exclaimed: "Oh let's zoom in then, marvellous – let the animal have some dignity! Back off, back off!"
He, Scott, and Holly were already laughing hysterically – but things took another turn when they cut to their cleaning expert to tease an upcoming segment.
As Lynsey posed to plug her bathroom cleaning hacks, Phil and Holly completely lost it – and even the crew could be heard laughing off camera.
Phil struggled to pull himself together as he tried to cut to the break, unable to get the words out between fits of giggles.
Viewers at home were also in hysterics at the scene, and branded the seal a telly icon.
Taking to Twitter, one fan wrote: "A seal weeing on TV is Monday's highlight!!!"
Another agreed: "As if they’ve just zoomed in on the seal having a wee" alongside a string of crying-with-laughter emojis.
A third echoed: "Clip of the day the seal pittling!"
One more tweeted: "The Seal having a wee on live TV has made my morning!"
