Phillip Schofield collapsed onto the floor on Saturday night's instalment of The Million Pound Cube.

The presenter, who was recently 'asked out on a date' by Rev Richard Coles, fell to his knees after contestant Kevin Clifton failed a nail-biting task.

Kevin was required to balance a silver orb on a disk and attempt to get it to connect with the magnet above it.

However, when the former Strictly Come Dancing professional dropped the silver orb and lost the challenge, Phil, 58, dropped to his knees and fell back onto the floor.

Phil was standing by the side of the cube, alongside Kevin's girlfriend Stacey Dooley who was also competing on the show.

After Kevin, 38, dropped the silver orb, Phil shouted: "I can't remember in nine series of this show ever feeling like this.

"Oh my god Kevin. You must be knackered!" the This Morning Host said.

Just after the ITV show aired, Kevin took to Twitter to reveal a medic had to check him over after he was in pain following the challenge.

"I never once had any injuries on Strictly. After The Cube the medic rushed in with ibuprofen," he told his followers.

The dancer ended up winning £10,000 for charity, with Phil telling him it was the "most deserved" win the show had ever seen.

Fans took to Twitter to share their feelings after the nerve-wracking episode.

One fan wrote: "This Kevin guy on the cube is having a right laugh my body physically can't take it anymore."

Another said: "Kevin Clifton's go on #TheCube has to be one of the most stressful TV pieces of all time!"

A third added: "I think Kevin should have been allowed to pick the ball up and put it on the magnet for the simplify instead of removing the barrier fhs #TheCube."

"Kevin finally getting that ball on the magnet was the miracle of 2020, that was one of the tensest ever tv moments #thecube #millionpoundcube," a fourth fan explained.

Phil also took to Twitter to watch the show with fans, and shared a picture of himself collapsed on the floor.

"First time @THECUBETV has EVER done this to me @kevinclifton !!!!" he wrote.

Sharing some behind the scenes information for his Twitter followers, Phil also said: "Insider fact .. @kevinclifton balanced that silver ball above his head for nearly 40 minutes!!!! #THECUBETV @ITV."
