Phillip Schofield once saved a goldfish's life with a whisk.
The 54-year-old TV star found his family's pet lying on the top of the water in its' tank leaving his two daughters distraught.
But quick-thinking Schofield came up with a life-saving idea to bring the fish back from the dead by placing his aquatic pal in a new bowl of water which he whisked up to increase the oxygen levels.
Schofield shared the story with his co-presenter Holly Willoughby on ITV daytime show 'This Morning' on Wednesday (25.01.17) as they were doing a cooking segment on 'unicorn lattes'.
He said: "I saved a goldfish once with a whisk, it was a really hot day and the oxygen in the goldfish tank had massively dropped, so the goldfish was actually floating on the top and I took it out and I put it into another bowl and I whisked the water and whooshed a whole load of oxygen into it and 'ping' the goldfish came back to life. I just thought, 'It's got to be low on oxygen, how do I get oxygen into the goldfish?' I couldn't give him mouth-to-mouth."
Phillip and Holly, 35, and the rest of the 'This Morning' team, which includes Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford, will be at the National Television Awards tonight where they will be hoping to win the prize for Best Live Magazine Show. They are up against 'BBC Breakfast', 'Lorraine', 'Loose Women', 'Good Morning Britain' and 'The One Show'.
The ceremony is being held at The O2 arena in London and will be hosted by Dermot O'Leary.
