This Morning Forced To Cut Interview With 'Prince Charles' Secret Son' Short

Phillip Schofield was forced to cut short a segment on This Morning yesterday featuring a man who claims to be the secret child of Prince Charles and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, after someone off-camera shouted a swear word.

Phillip and co-presenter Holly Willoughby were chatting on ITV's flagship morning programme with Simon Charles Dorante-Day yesterday morning via a video link to Australia where he lives.

However, Simon's wife Elvianna could at one stage be heard off-screen shouting, and then yelled 'stop treating indigenous people like s***!'.

At that stage, Phillip was forced to close down the interview, telling Simon: "We'll leave it there Simon, unfortunately."

59-year-old presenter Schofield had previously called Dorante-Day's claims that he is the lost child of Prince Charles 'a stretch' after he'd been shown pictures of Simon's children, who he says look like Charles and his mother, Queen Elizabeth.

While the questioning from Holly and Phil remained civil, proceedings started to hot up after royal biographer Robert Jobson was brought on and asked what he thinks about it all.

You can probably guess what he thinks, can't you?

Robert, the author of a book called 'Prince Charles at 70: Our Future King' vehemently dismissed all of Simon's claims and the pair ended up in a shouting match, talking over one another.

Things did eventually calm down, and Phillip offered the pair the opportunity to answer questions in turn without shouting over each other.

However, that's when Simon's wife decided to have her say, and the interview was terminated.

Holly then told viewers she was 'sorry for any bad language you heard there' and brought the show up to a commercial break.

Despite that, she could be seen attempting to stop herself from laughing whilst she tried to tease an upcoming phone-in featuring Vanessa Feltz and Phillip.

Phillip could also be seen and heard laughing away to himself whilst sitting on the sofa.

To be fair, this isn't the first time that the presenters have been reduced to hysterics on the sofa, and it almost certainly won't be the last.

However, it must be disappointing for 55-year-old Simon, who has spent decades trying to prove that he is the son of Charles and Camilla after his grandmother told him in 1998.
