Mum’s Cardboard Cutout Date With Phillip Schofield Makes This Morning!

Mum’s Cardboard Cutout Date With Phillip Schofield Makes This Morning!

We just had to share this hilarious story from The Motherload® Facebook community about how one MOLO, with a bit of a thing for Phillip Schofield took out a cardboard cut-out of him for her birthday celebrations, and ended up chatting to the man himself on This Morning!

Siobhan Sewell had MOLOs in stitches when she posted a copy of her email to a cardboard cut out company on The Motherload® Facebook group. She had ordered a life-size cardboard cut out of Phillip Schofield to take out with her for her 35th birthday and was disappointed he hadn’t arrived on his delivery date. She shared her witty message to the company, Celebrity Cutouts with us, telling them “Imagine my devastation when now at 10.23pm I am tucked up in bed, cold, folorn, heartbroken and most sadly alone, with no silver fox in the premises”. The reply (also brilliantly witty) included a reassurance that her two-dimensional man would make it in time. Hurray!

Here he is, can you tell how happy Siobhan was that he had arrived in time for her birthday?

Siobhan kept us posted with updates on his arrival and pics from her night out getting thousands of likes and comments.

Here they are, ready for a night out on the town…


Sadly, Phil lost both of his legs on their night out – but by all accounts, they had a great time. MOLOs encouraged her to share her story with the man himself and offered to put the pics out there on Twitter in the hope of catching his attention…

Then she ended up on This Morning chatting to Phil and Holly Willoughby – AMAZING!

She was absolutely brilliant and had us (and Holly and Phil) cracking up with her Tena Lady gag.

You can watch her full appearance on This Morning here!

Not only that, but Siobhan has been invited to go and meet the silver fox in the flesh at This Morning’s live show in Birmingham.

Oh. Em. Gee. Keep those photos coming Siobhan!
