Phillip Schofield heaped praise on ambulance paramedics this week after his neighbour’s gardener went into anaphylactic shock after being stung three times by bees.
The This Morning star said emergency services arrived on the scene after only three minutes, as he shared a photo of the vehicle out the front of his house on Wednesday.
He wrote on Instagram: ‘When the gardener next door is stung three times by a bee and goes into anaphylactic shock.
‘And our incredible ambulance and paramedic team are here in three minutes!! We are SO lucky to have them.’
Sharing an update on the gardener, he added: ‘He’s going to be fine thanks to them, thank you.’
Able to be on hand during the medical emergency, it seems his break from This Morning, which would have seen him in the ITV studios during the day, came at the right time.

Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford are filling in for Phil and co-host Holly Willoughby as they take a well-earned break over the summer holidays.
Making the most of his time off, the presenter recently celebrated the nuptials of Ant McPartlin and Anne-Marie Corbett, attending their star-studded wedding over the weekend.
Phil attended with wife Stephanie Lowe and spoke in superlatives about the ceremony at St Michael’s Church in Heckfield.
Talking to the Sunday Mirror, he shared: ‘It was amazing. It was really fun, really nice, warm and cheerful. I really enjoyed it.’
His co-star Holly was unable to make the ceremony, however it’s since emerged she spoke privately to Ant McPartlin and his new wife about missing their wedding, after confusion about her absence.
Amid speculation Holly didn’t attend in an effort to avoid a run-in with bosses from her former management company, sources told Metro.co.uk she had legitimate reasons for being unable to attend.
They said: ‘Holly would not have missed Ant’s wedding if she really couldn’t help it.
‘She wouldn’t miss a friend’s wedding because of anything business related. That’s just not the case. Anyone who knows her knows how important her friendships are to her.
‘There is another reason she couldn’t be there and she has explained this to the people who matter the most in this – Ant and Anne-Marie.’
