PHILLIP Schofield appeared to death-stare Alice Beer in an awkward moment on This Morning today.
He looked deeply unimpressed as the consumer reporter brought up his age, flashing her a stare that one fan said "could have killed".
Speaking about loyalty cards, Alice explained: "If you're over 60 – that's you tomorrow isn't it, Phil – you can get…"
She then trailed off having noticed his expression, adding: "Oh. Oh dear, I should never have done that should I?"
Phillip replied coldly: "What a strange way to resign."
One viewer suggested that while the star's birthday was enthusiastically celebrated by This Morning's stars, no one else had dared to bring up how old he is.

The fan wrote: "They all said happy bday without the number apart from Alice Beer who broke rank. The look he gave her could have killed."
Another laughed: "Alice is getting a b***ocking right now from Phil."
A third wrote: "Alice mentions his birthday and nearly got sacked. Here's Lisa with a cake."
Suggesting the whole thing might have been for show, they did briefly laugh about it afterwards, before moving on.
