    He usually spends his weekdays filming This Morning.

    But Phillip Schofield swapped the ITV studios for the outdoors as he starred in a We Buy Any Car advert in London on Friday.

    Throwing himself into the action, the 55-year-old presenter was seen rescuing a cat from a tree as the cameras rolled.

    Cuddling the adorable kitten to his chest, the father-of-two seemed in his element as he filmed the scenes. 

    Looking every inch the superhero, Phillip raced towards the tree with the ladder in hand and with no regard at all for his personal safety, bounded up into the branches. 

    Safely back on the ground, the silver fox was seen handing the cute kitty back to its delighted owners.

    Phillip’s companions are usually less furry, as he sits alongside Holly Willoughby on This Morning, with the presenting pair recently losing the plot over a nickname Holly has for Phil.

    Explaining that he had needed to get out of his taxi and jump on a motorbike in order to get to work on time that morning, Phil revealed that he had taken a selfie of himself on the back of the bike.

    As the image flashed up of Phil in a crash helmet, Holly made a somewhat odd remark.

    ‘Aww, look at your little specimen head in a helmet,’ she said.

    Paws for thought: Phillip had bounded up the ladder with abandon before heading back to the ground with the cat safely in his arms

    This was met with laughter from herself and from Phil and the camera crew, with viewers at home left slightly perplexed.

    ‘Shut your face up!’ Phil chuckled. 

    Phil encouraged his co-host to actually explain the joke, to which she elaborated that his mother once told her that when he was born the doctor called his head ‘the perfect specimen’.

    ‘The only reason I say your specimen head is when you were born, the nurse said to your mum, “it’s the perfect specimen head”,’ she said.

    ‘It’s because if they hadn’t said that, they would have shrieked,’ Phillip added with a smirk. 

    It was supposedly a near-miss for Phil, who had been stuck in a traffic jam that morning.

    ‘That was the closest I’ve ever been to missing the start of the show,’ he said.

    Phil has presented This Morning on a weekly basis since 2002 – making Thursday’s near/miss quite the milestone.

    He revealed that the bike that saved him was actually intended for Good Morning Britain host Ben Shephard, but that it was re-routed to urgently collect Phil.
