Phillip Schofield has confessed that he's eating so little while on the "5.2" diet that he's experienced hallucinations

Phillip Schofield has been experiencing hallucinations because of his extreme dieting.

The 'This Morning' host has admitted that he's been following a strict diet in a bid to lose some extra weight but claims after losing one and a half stone, he may have taken it too far.

Speaking on an episode of 'Alan Carr: Chatty Man', which will air on Channel 4 tonight (13.06.14), he said: "I saw a picture and thought, 'You look a bit porky'.

"I wanted to be 11st. It took nine or ten months and now I am. My stomach is now so small I have hardly any appetite and I can't keep weight on.

"People say, 'Are you alright, are you alright?'"

He then added: "I have had hallucinations."

The 52-year-old television presenter has been following the "5.2" diet, which involves fasting on just 500 calories for women or 600 for men for two days a week while eating normally on the other five days, but fans think his appearance has become too frail.

A member of the 'Alan Carr: Chatty Man' audience commented: "His legs looked scarily thin. He didn't look right and people were saying he had lost too much weight."
