Man claiming to be Charles and Camilla's secret son has This Morning interview taken off air

Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield were forced to cut the guest off after his wife starting shouting on the video link.
Simon Charles Dorante-Day, 55, believes he is the son of Prince Charles and Camilla the Duchess of Cornwall, claiming he was conceived by the royal couple in 1965.
British-born engineer Simon, who now lives in Australia, joined hosts Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield to discuss his quest to prove his claims.
Simon was born in 1966 and was adopted at a young age by a couple who he claims were employees in royal residences and entrusted with him.
In 1998, Simon said his adoptive grandmother, shortly before she passed away, confirmed to him that the Duchess of Cornwall is his mother.
He told Holly and Phil that he is looking for the truth and is requesting a DNA test from the royal family to confirm his claims.
Simon, who believes he and his children resemble members of the royal family, claims his eye colour was changed when he was eight-years-old to stop people from noticing a connection between him and the royal family.
He told Phil and Holly that he thinks "they didn't have a choice but to do this" due to the gossip going around at the time.
The This Morning hosts later brought Royal Biographer Robert Jobson into the interview, who said: "Personally I must say I think it's a bit of a stretch, the photographs don't look anything like the royal family."
He went on to add that it sounded "more like a James Bond" film to him.
Mr Jobson also added that while Simon claims he was conceived in 1965, Camilla and Charles didn't meet until 1970.
The interview quickly became heated between the two, which was followed by Simon's wife barging in on the interview and screaming down the video link.
She could be heard shouting "lies!" before swearing, causing the hosts to pull the interview off air.
After cutting the guest off, Phillip commented: "That wasn't very royal, was it?"
The Royal family have never responded to Simon's claims.
