Phillip Schofield has revealed he got an 'extra 20 years' with his dad after he saved his life by administering CPR.
Phillip, 59, was discussing the awful incident which took place on the football pitch over the week which saw Christian Eriksen collapse in the first half of the group stage match between Denmark and Finland.
The footballer had suffered a cardiac arrest and doctors confirmed hat he was "gone" for a short period.
Ultimately it was CPR that saved the sportsman's life, so Phillip and his co-host Holly Willoughby were keen to speak to medical professional, Dr Ellie, about the procedure.

Dr Ellie showed Holly and Phil and viewers at home the correct way to give CPR using a model torso on the floor in the This Morning studio.
Phillip stressed just how vital CPR can be by using his own very personal experience as an example.
"I brought my dad back doing that and we got 20 extra years with him because of that, so you just never know," the father-of-two revealed.

"If I hadn’t been in that night, then you know, that would have been it," Phillip added as Holly looked on.
Phillip was just 22-years-old when his dad Brian suffered a heart attack but used CPR techniques he had seen on the TV.
Sadly his father passed away in 2008 at the age of 72, but today wasn't the first time he has opened up about it.
Speaking on This Morning back in 2018, Phillip said: "I've done it myself, brought my dad back. He had a heart attack and died in front of us on the carpet.
"I hadn't trained at all, but just what I'd seen on the telly, and it worked," he added.
This Morning airs weekdays at 10am on ITV.
