TMZ has learned that Dr. Phil paid a visit to Brit this morning -- and she could return the favor next week by appearing on "The Dr. Phil Show."
The show is taping a special about Britney Spears on Monday, which will air on Wednesday. They requested video of Britney from TMZ on Friday.
When you connect the dots, it's pretty clear they are angling to get Britney on the set on Monday.
Stay tuned ...
