Phillip Schofield takes a swipe at Boris Johnson as he says 'Sue Gray has commented on a few knobs'

PHILLIP Schofield took a swipe at Boris Johnson today as he joked that Sue Gray ‘has commented on a few knobs’.

The This Morning host was discussing a knob-tossing contest being cancelled, when he couldn't resist mocking the PM amid the Sue Gray report.

Phillip explained: “World famous knob throwing festival has been cancelled due to a supply issue.”

Camilla Tominey remarked: “The knobs got too big. That could be problematic for the people of Dorset.

“I’m wondering if I should wait to comment on this before Sue Gray reports. I think she might need to carry out an inquiry.”

Quick off the mark, Phil joked: “She’s commented on quite a few knobs as a matter of fact.”

Rochelle quipped: “I’m not sure there’s a shortage. That’s all I’ll say.”

The annual Dorset Knob Throwing challenge involves people tossing the county’s traditional cookies across a field.
