FIRST TAKE A PAIR OF MELONS IN A FERN GRIP; Taste test as Phil gropes wife on air.

CELEBRITY chef Phil Vickery made a boob on live TV yesterday - when he groped his presenter wife Fern Britten's breast.

This Morning host Fern had joined show cook Phil for a feature on how to prepare unusual vegetables.

But he was left squirming in embarrassment when he reached out to pat her arm - and accidentally squeezed her right boob.

Fern jumped away, yelling: "Do you mind!"

Humiliated Phil giggled: `I'm so sorry. I thought it was your arm!"

Fern wrapped her cardigan around her body and tried to continue with the feature.

But the couple struggled with their lines and failed to stifle their laughter when Phil began explaining how viewers should judge if fruit is ripe.

With a glint in her eye, Fern butted in: "You just give them a good squeeze, don't you?"

Phil grinned and told her he preferred to give them "a couple of taps".

The crew filming the ITV1 mid-morning show could be heard sniggering throughout the five- minute slot, during which the couple had to fondle an array of exotic fruit.

The telly boob was the second embarrassing moment for Fern during yesterday's show.

The first was entirely of her own doing.

She had blushed bright red when she put her foot in it during an earlier interview with British tennis star Tim Henman.

Fern had insinuated the British number one would be watching the Wimbledon final from the stands, rather than playing in it.
