Phillip Schofield was taken-aback when Health Secretary Matt Hancock called the room where he does his online Zoom meetings his "boudoir" on This Morning on Monday.
The Health Secretary appeared on the daytime TV programme to discuss the latest developments in the fight against Covid.
In particular, Phil and his co-host Holly Willoughby quizzed Hancock over the recent issues with Europe blocking the Oxford AstraZeneca vaccine as well as whether Brits could hope to go on holiday abroad this summer.
But as the interview was coming to an end, which was conducted outside the ITV studio to celebrate the relaxation of the lockdown rules today, it was the Minister’s Zoom meeting room at home that caused a stir.
Despite its bold red shade of paint on the walls, he defended the choice and called it a "boudoir".
"There’s been a lot of interest in your red room as well," Holly began.
“Yeah I’ve seen that,” Hancock smiled. "I love it, I love the red."
An inquisitive Holly asked him: "It’s quite an angry red though don’t you think?"

"No, no, I don’t think so, it’s lovely," the MP insisted. "It’s a boudoir."
"A boudoir?" Phil cried in shock.
Hancock stood by his language and simply shrugged and laughed it off.
"What have you just said?" Phil asked, clearly cringing for the guest.
"Well we look forward to your next Zoom call from your boudoir," the presenter then finished with a snicker.

As the camera panned back from the trio the Health Secretary could be seen leaning over and laughing his head off.
Phillip shook his head in dismay as he fought a smirk.
Meanwhile, viewers couldn't help but commenting on the segment.
"Never thought Matt Hancock would make me laugh out loud," one added.
