In a heated clash, the 58-year old had asked about the new rule saying you could meet with people from outside your house if you kept your distance.

He said: “It is a mental health thing.

“When you look at family, I can understand the regulations very clearly with social distance.

“When it comes to parents, we’ve been separated for such a long time.”

After the senior minister insisted he could see both, Philip asked: "Does that mean I can see my parents ten minutes part?"

Mr Hancock had insisted: "Yeah as long as it's only one at a time that's fine".

The exasperated hosted replied: “Don’t you see that that’s utterly bonkers.”

Mr Hancock insisted: "No, we don’t want large groups gathering.

"You’ve got to set a line somewhere.

"I think people understand we’ve made balanced judgement.

"I totally get the yearning to see one’s loved ones."
