Gino DAcampo caught in badly timed Phillip Schofield blunder on Family Fortunes
Family Fortune's presenter Gino D'Acampo has landed himself in an awkward TV moment after a question regarding ITV's This Morning was aired following Phillip Schofield's exit.
During the popular gameshow which aired on Sunday night (May 21), 46-year-old Gino asked a family of five: "Name someone who appears on the TV show This Morning."
As the family answered the question with confidence, Holly Willoughby and Phillip both appeared to be top answers, with contestant Natasha winning a prize after she mentioned Phil.

But due to the fact that Phillip, 61, announced that he was "stepping down" from his role as This Morning presenter a day before, fans had plenty to say.
Heading over to Twitter, one social media user wrote: "Oh god #FamilyFortunes on ITV just had the question ‘Name somebody who regularly appears on the TV show This Morning'. The top answers were Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield."
Another penned: "It appears to be just a weird coincidence (weird that ITV didn’t change the episode, though.) Reminds me of this amazing coincidence on Pointless the same day Liz Truss stood down as PM."
A third chimed: "Bet they regret airing this question this weekend. What timing."
While a fourth added: "They have just revealed Phillip Schofield as a regular on This Morning on #FamilyFortunes. Talk about bad timing."
After weeks of speculation that Holly and Phillip had a fallout backstage, many publications believed that Phillip's time on the ITV show was about to come to an end.
Following the negative attention, on Saturday(May 20), the long-running host confirmed that he had decided to leave.
Phillip took to his Instagram to share a statement.
He wrote: "Throughout my career in TV – including in the very difficult last few days – I have always done my best to be honourable and kind.
"I understand that ITV has decided the current situation can't go on, and I want to do what I can to protect the show that I love.
"So I have agreed to step down from This Morning with immediate effect, in the hope that the show can move forward to a bright future."
He added: "I'd like to thank everyone who has supported me – especially This Morning's amazing viewers – and I'll see you all for the Soap Awards next month."
Monday's episode of This Morning was presented by Dermot O'Leary and Alison Hammond, while Holly takes two weeks off for half term.
