ITV's This Morning host Phillip Schofield appeared on the famous sofa alongside Josie Gibson and welcomed guest Colin Craig-Brown.

Colin appeared on the show via video link with his gourd named Doug, which donned a pair of sunnies as they chatted away to the TV hosts to talk about the bombshell news that his gourd was not a spud.

The 7.9kg tuber was on track to be the world's largest potato, but it turned out that it was a different vegetable all together after a sample was sent to the UK for DNA testing.

As Colin appeared on the show to chat about the unfortunate turnaround, he began ranting and let a banned word slip through the net.

He said: "It was a bit of a deflation, you know, to find out he wasn't a potato, but hey, as you walk along through life you get these sh***y sandwiches, someone packs them in your lunchbox."

The quip took Phil and Josie by surprise as they both started to chuckle before Phil apologised profusely, with Josie adding: "Sorry about that!", before moving on.

Phil may have immediately apologised for the quip, but viewers certainly noticed and they couldn't help but be in absolute hysterics.

Taking to Twitter, one user wrote: "Sh***y sandwiches! I LOVE HIM."

While another said: "We need more of Colin, he's brilliant. I mean come on, 'sh***y sandwiches' and his total disgust that Phil keeps calling it a gourd instead of a tuber."

A third said: "He's from New Zealand, we'll allow him a 'sh***y sandwich'," alongside laughing emojis.

The hosts also welcomed guest Anna on who is both a gardener and a cook to talk about the tuber as she said it was a "mystery".

As Phil asked her for advice on how to grow something particularly large, Anna said: "Well I would start by chitting them – that's CH."

Phil immediately chimed in and said: "Have I got to apologise again?"

As they moved on Phil queried Colin as to why Doug was wearing sunnies, prompting Colin to say: "Well, you know, he reckons he's going celebrity status.

"He's been watching the Kardashians on telly when he's been out so he thinks he should have stained glasses because of all the bright lights and stuff."

Phil and Josie failed to hold in their laughter as they cackled at the guest and fans couldn't hide their joy for guest Colin as they begged for him to come back soon.

This Morning continues weekdays on ITV at 10am.
