This Morning host Phillip Schofield, 58, has taken the opportunity to warn his fans who may suffer from arachnophobia before sharing a video of a “huge” spider with his 3.2 million Instagram followers this evening. The presenter discovered the eight legged insect in his house and explained it was “that time of year” when spiders begin to appear in people’s homes around the UK.
He wrote before posting the fear-inducing clip: “Warning… video of a huge spider is next.”
Phillip then zoomed his camera in on the creature, which appeared to be sitting on some patterned wallpaper.
Speaking about his find, the television personality said: “Ah here we go.
“It’s that time of the year… first one.”
One person wrote: “Well I now need to try this.”
Another added: “That’s just brilliant! I didn’t even know you were making wine! Love the box.”
A third fan commented: “That’s a massive achievement, well done Phillip!”
Alongside his wine project and work on This Morning, Phillip has been keeping busy during the coronavirus lockdown by writing his new tell-all book, Life’s What You Make It, which details the “ups and downs” in his career and family life.
