Discussing Elon Musk buying Twitter and the suggestion that all users may have to be verified, Phillip asserted: ‘There’s the side of the argument where, if you’re gonna say something, make sure you can back it up with your own name.

‘If that isn’t the case, then it could become even more of a cesspit than it already is. I’ve deleted it off my phone. And I’ll quite openly say that…

‘Because, there is a section that is wonderful and magnificent and funny and informative…. And there is a section that is vile and disgusting and I want no part of it in my life.’

Vanessa Feltz added: ‘Well I’ve never been anywhere near it. I’ve never even looked at it, and the reason why is that I just don’t think I have a strong enough constitution.

It comes after Vanessa hinted she was planning to join OnlyFans during an appearance on This Morning in January.

The broadcaster said she was keeping her ‘options’ open in a bid to ‘provide for my old age’ and family in the future.

Phillip said: ‘Well, Vanessa Feltz, talk about go down the social media route. She’s just got her blue tick on her Instagram, now she’s talking about joining Only Fans.’

Vanessa explained: ‘Why not?! Is that a bad idea? Just to provide for my old age and look after my starving orphan children. Would there be a market for it though, that’s the thing, would there?’

An enthusiastic Holly Willoughby replied: ‘Do it! I am your biggest supporter! Absolutely,’ while Phil insisted: ‘There’s a market for everything.’

Vanessa explained: ‘You see my parents are dead, they can’t really object to it. My father would say, “For this you went to Cambridge,” but he can’t anymore so what the hell, right?

She clarified: ‘Anyway, no one’s asked me to, you should know that.’

But Phillip continued: ‘All options open, you should have a plan,’ to which Vanessa cheekily hit back: ‘And not just my options open!’
