ritain's Prime Minister Theresa May made a cameo appearance in This Morning's 30th birthday episode on Wednesday (03.10.18).

The popular brunch time show kicked off today with a huge stunt featuring the tough-talking politician after Phillip Schofield almost missed the start of the programme because he was stuck in London's rush hour traffic.

Speaking to his co-host Holly Willoughby on the phone, the 56-year-old presenter explained that he was stuck in the back of a cab and needed help "quick."

Thinking quick on her feet, Holly roped in her friend Dermot O'Leary.

He said: "What? 30th with no Phillip... not on my watch! I'll call in some favours."

Newsreader Mary Nightingale was then seen saying: "Don't worry, I know exactly who to call...," before the camera flashed to the new Doctor Who Jodie Whittaker.

The 36-year-old actress - who is the first-ever woman to play the female Time Lord - quickly called Keith Lemon and screeched in a panic: "Phil needs ya..."

With the help of the flame-haired funny man - portrayed by Leigh Francis - the Prime Minister called Phillip directly and said: "It's This Morning's 30th birthday, you absolutely have to be there... I know just the people who can help you."

May then directed him to a Red Devils sign - the Parachute Regiment's parachute display team - and said: "Remember Phillip, the nations going to be watching..."

Phillip was then seen hopping on a plane and flying across the capital before he jumped out and sky dived into the studios at the Television Centre just in time.

Holly said: "What time do you call this?"

The presenters then thanked all those involved in the stunt, before they kicked off the birthday celebrations with a performance from The Bootleg Beatles.
