This Morning host Phillip Schofield sent a cheeky message to Ofcom during Thursday's edition of the ITV daytime show.

The 58-year-old presenter and co-star Holly Willoughby welcomed Dr Chris Steele onto the show to discuss a new viagra gel which claims to work "six times faster" than the usual pill.

As they chatted during the segment, Phillip joked: "Good morning Ofcom, you’re welcome!"

Viewers at home rushed to their keyboards to air their views on the explict edition of This Morning.

One fan penned: "Viagra and sex toys. This Morning really running out of topics for discussion."

Another moaned: "Are we really talking about erections, viagra and orgasms all in one show?"

It comes after the news this that over 100 This Morning viewers complained after watching a horse being milked live on the ITV daytime show last week.

The broadcasting watchdog has revealed that there were objections to the scenes on the programme, with the "majority" of the 115 complaints in relation to the episode aired on March 16.

During the episode, Holly, 40, and Phillip chatted to roving reporter Josie Gibson, who was live at the only "mare's milk" farm in the UK.

Big Brother winner Josie was joined by farmer Frank at Cromwell Farm in Bath, where they produce mare milk.

Frank said he drank a litre a of the milk a day and credits it for helping him recover from a stroke.

He also explained how it's similar to breast milk in terms of its benefits.

Once the abstraction device was secured, the milking expert explained: "There you are you're milking a horse."

A stunned Josie gasped: "Just like that?"

To which Frank responded: "Its easy isn't it?"

After milking the horse herself with the guidance of Frank, reality star Josie got to try some of the milk for herself.

"This is the first time I’ve tried it mind, I tell you what Frank that is gorgeous," she said.

It's a bit like sweet coconut milk. It hasn’t got a smell, it this has been pasteurised though."

Phillip, 58, and Holly, 39, watched from the studio and Phil was keen to try some of the horse milk.

"It has got an odd smell," he said

Holly quipped: "It smells of horse."

Phillip replied: "No, it sort of smells like salmon. It’s like fishy horse."

He eventually gave it a try and his face said it all before adding: "I don't like that."

"It is kind of coconutty but it is quite watery. It’s got a bit of an odd feel to it, a bit of a strange taste to it.

"It’s got a bit of an after taste."

Viewers couldn't believe what they had witnessed and took to Twitter to express their feelings.
