TV viewers may be used to seeing Phillip Schofield with a perfect smile, but he was in need of teeth whitening after a recent holiday.
The This Morning regular told viewers today (October 5th 2010) that he had recently been on a wine-tasting trip where he sampled more than 100 wines from Bordeaux.
However, while he had great fun and reportedly still sober, Schofield’s teeth came out somewhat worse for wear.
He showed viewers a photograph of himself smiling with his smile looking a funny shade of brown and also posted it on Twitter with the caption: “As expected I look like [TV rag and bone man] Albert Steptoe.”
Despite Schofield’s adventure, his teeth were back to their usual dazzling shade today, presumably after some rather speedy teeth whitening treatment, the Daily Mail reports.
This comes after scientists in Canada discovered last year that red wine could be good for teeth in the long run, because it can help stave off periodontal diseases.
