Proving he has a good sense of humour, the This Morning presenter couldn't resist poking fun at the unfortunate photo of music mogul Simon that did the rounds on social media this week.
A barefoot Simon had been relaxing at his Judges' Houses in Malibu, flanked by Mel B and Emma Bunton, when the cameras caught him at an awkward angle, making his bare toe look suspiciously like another part of his anatomy.
Simon was quick to assure everyone it was only his toe making an entrance, but it didn't stop the memes and laughter going around social media this weekend!
The topic came up on Monday's This Morning when Rylan Clark-Neal mentioned it in his showbiz slot. He said Simon had phoned into Xtra Factor, which Rylan hosts, on Sunday night to clarify the photo.
Simon had said: "There are one or two things I want to address based on headlines this morning… Toe Gate. Just to be clear, it was my toe. It was quite embarrassing when I saw this online. I wasn't wearing any shoes. It was definitely my toe. And I have a very large toe, I'll admit!"
Phillip joked: "Not really!"
Phillip then told Rylan Clark-Neal they should recreate the photo after This Morning ended and post it to social media, but Rylan said as he was wearing boots it would have to be Pip who did the honours.
And he did! He's a man of his word - and his fans loved it!
