The pair were discussing the matter as part of a segment on This Morning when Josie said: “I get addicted to buying really weird things.”
Phil then proceeded to grill Josie on what these “weird things” were, when she confessed that she buys a lot of calculators.
The crew in the studio could then be heard bursting into fits of laughter as Phil gave a bewildered look at the camera.
In an attempt to distract Phil from the topic, Josie asks her co-host if he has any hoarding habits, to which he says no.
Phil explained: “If people give me notes or letters or things like that, I save those.”
“I love a bit of stationery, I’ll go that far,” he continued. “I love having envelopes, I always like having stamps and all of that sort of business. I like a good pen. But hoarding? No.”
Josie is currently standing in for Holly Willoughby and has been doing so for three days because she’s been suffering with a tummy bug.
Phil gave an update on Holly at the beginning of the show on Thursday 18 November and said that his friend was having a “proper rough time” with it, but that she’s slowly but surely getting better.

Josie, who usually hosts different segments for the show, made her studio debut on Tuesday 16 November, and has since received an influx of support.
Chatting to Phil the day after, Josie admitted that she was reduced to tears by everyone’s kind messages.
She said: “Do you know what? Social media can be quite a dark place at times. But yesterday I was showered with love. I had a good cry, I did have a cry for about half an hour after the show.”
“It was just so emotional. It was a really big thing to be sat here with you yesterday and to have all those lovely messages. It was just so lovely,” Josie continued.
In light of her popularity, some This Morning viewers have suggested she take up the role full time.
One person said: “#ThisMorning Josie is a bit of a revelation. Poised. Understated. Articulate. Professional. Call me old fashioned but I was expecting enforced lunacy, superfluous repetition and camera hogging – but no!”
A second penned: “Love Holly but Josie has been amazing today she’s a natural #thismorning”.
