As This Morning kicked off on Wednesday, the very first segment of the show saw Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield speak to a pair of farming brothers who’d managed to grow the world’s largest pumpkin. Speaking to the siblings from their farm in Hampshire, the ITV presenting pair were both keen to find out more about how they’d managed to grow such a humungous vegetable. However, when Holly produced a larger than normal marrow on the show to compare, it didn’t take long for the innuendos to fly.
As Phillip and Holly marvelled at the pumpkin, the former asked: “How have you done that?”
One of the pumpkin’s owners replied: “Well, the best thing if you want to learn how to grow a pumpkin – and we believe we need to get more kids doing it – there’s a really good site called bigpumpkins.com.”
Holly and Phil’s stifled laughter could be heard back in the This Morning studio but the farmer carried on regardless.
“They’re really friendly people,” the guest added. “And there’s lots of growers’ diaries, our own grower diary’s there.”
He added, much to the surprise of Holly and Phillip: “We haven’t got any secrets at all and you can learn how to grow them quite quickly.
“If you start with a grapeseed, you can grow a 450lb pumpkin easily.”
Holly then weighed in with an oversized marrow in hand: “That’s amazing. Is there a site called bigmarrow.com?”
Inevitably, Phillip found himself trying to cover up his laughter while members of the This Morning crew could be heard giggling off-camera.
Holding the marrow up to camera, Holly continued: “Because, I don’t know whether you can see this, but David who is head of wardrobe here at This Morning, created this monster.”
Holly then probed further as to how she could grow the marrow even larger as Phillip looked to the heavens.
“It’s just water and love really?” Holly asked with the guests agreeing there wasn’t much more to it – although they did reveal it was a rather expensive labour of love.
As the This Morning pair bid farewell to the farmers, however, Phillip couldn’t resist a tongue-in-cheek innuendo.

“Also, I think we should say,” he began as the camera returned to the studio. “Really be very careful before you Google bigmarrow.com”
Holly let out raucous laughter by her colleague’s x-rated warning and he soon followed suit.
“Just saying,” he clarified as Holly still held the marrow in hand.
“What are we gonna do with this?” a laughing Holly asked before she nudged it out of shot.
This Morning continues weekdays at 10am on ITV.
