This Morning forced to scrap saucy segments as kids tune in during lockdown

SAUCY segments are being ditched from This Morning as more kids are watching.

Hosts Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield often crack up at the show’s innuendo-laden antics.

And risque features have included sex positions for the over-60s and life-size sex dolls, while Somerset gran Iris Jones, 81, told of using a “whole tub of KY jelly” with her Egyptian toyboy, 35.

But the number of children watching breakfast telly shows has surged after Covid forced schools to close.

A TV insider said: “Before lockdown, producers could explore adult themes safe in the knowledge the majority of kids would be in class.

“Now most of them are back home and This Morning doesn’t want to run the risk of upsetting any mums and dads.

"They aren’t going to avoid important subjects but they will make sure nothing is too explicit.

“Though bosses also accept that sometimes a live show means that things can happen, such as a slip of the tongue or a saucy innuendo, which often leave Holly and Phillip in fits.”

Primary and secondary schools across the UK are expected to be closed to most pupils for at least the next five weeks as the government battles to contain the spread of coronavirus.
