Phil forced to stop Ant Middleton’s This Morning interview over technical issue

Phillip Schofield was forced to stop SAS: Who Dares Wins star Ant Middleton's interview on This Morning today over an awkward technical issue.

The 38-year-old appeared on the ITV daytime show to speak about his new tour Mind Over Muscle, but viewers struggled to hear what he was saying due to mic problems.

Host Phil intervened as one of the backstage crew came over towards the sofa and stood up.

"Come over, we'll just stick that on," Phil said as Holly explained that there was a bit of a mic issue.

Phil joked: "I'm worried that anyone who came over out of your field of vision would have been taken out right there.

"Had to have a bit of a warning to keep them safe."

Ant also addressed the controversy he received over comments he made about his son crying.

He previously said that he wanted his son to adopt a "stiff upper lip" attitude, but admitted that he was quick to comfort his crying daughter.

During an interview on Giovanna Fletcher's podcast Happy Mum, Happy Baby, he said: "That’s life. It’s not being sexist, it’s not being non- PC. I’ll say it how it is and, in my heart of hearts, I think I’m doing the right thing."

Asked by Phil whether he has ever cried, he said, "Yes I have – I had a good cry," but he said that he was a "strong believer in emotional resilience".

Explaining his thought process over his remarks about his son, he said: "I teach him to take advantage of his emotions […] to hold that emotion to get the job done."

"There's no right in parenting," he said. "I instil what i think is right."
