First, Stephen asked Holly how much she thought her outfit cost, to which she guessed £150.

Everyone was then prompted to enter those numbers into the calculator and press plus.

Phillip was then asked how many steps it would take him to walk from the studio to his car, and he told everyone to add that number up.

He then typed random numbers into the phone which was held upside down.

To everyone’s surprise, the last number displayed on the screen was the exact date and time.

Stephen told viewers: “It’s really weird, three random numbers that haven’t been set up.
