However, Holly, 38, and Phillip, 57, were then forced to spin the wheel very fast after Dr Rodrey revealed he wasn't watching the show because he was with a patient.

He told a shocked Holly and Phil: " I'm with a patent, I had to walk out".

The pair told him: "Ok we're going to do this so fast", before spinning the wheel.

In the end, Dr Rodrey won a spa break in Devon, which he said was "brilliant".

People on Twitter were left with mixed emotions over the blunder, with one commenting: "Imagine being in hospital and the doctor walking out to take a phone call from this pair? I'd be fuming. #ThisMorning."

However, another saw the funny side, writing: "He was a doctor and supposed to be with a patient", followed by a laughing face emoji.
