Holly Willoughby celebrates St Patrick’s Day by hosting This Morning ‘dressed as a pint of Guinness’

People told to stay away from pubs due to coronavirus

| Updated:

With pubs in Ireland closed and Brits advised to avoid social gatherings big and small due to the coronavirus pandemic, today’s St Patrick’s Day celebrations were always going to be a little different.

So thank heavens for Holly Willoughby, who quipped that she hosted today’s This Morning (March 17) “dressed as a pint of Guinness”.

Holly looked gorgeous in black slim-leg trousers and an off-white jumper – and, posting a picture of herself holding a pint of the black stuff and a Guinness cake, we can definitely see the similarities.

The star wore a pair of black trousers by Iris Fashion, £250, and knitwear by Pure Collection, £87.50.

TV’s Mark Wright was among the first to comment on Holly’s St Patrick’s Day look.

He posted the crying with laughter emoji to her daily #HWstyle post, which unusually appeared online after the show – no doubt because she needed some props!

“Perfect, love a Guinness,” said one follower, who added: “Now down it!”

Another said: “Happy Paddy’s Day from a very calm Ireland as there are no pubs open.”

“I’ll have a piece of that cake please Holly,” another commented.

“Awww cute,” said another.

Others called the star a “complete legend” for paying tribute to Ireland’s patron saint.

However, the pint of Guinness that Holly was holding proved to be a bone of contention for some of her Irish followers.

“Happy St Paddy’s Day Holly, but that’s the worst looking pint of Guinness I’ve ever seen,” said one.

Another added: “Happy St Patrick’s Day but you could have gotten someone who knows how to pour a good pint of Guinness.”

“State of that Guinness – shocking,” said another.

“Whoever poured that Guinness should be fired,” said another.

We guess at least it makes a change from viewers suggesting Holly sacks her stylist!

Others even compared her co-host Phillip Schofield to a pint of Guinness.

One of Holly’s Instagram followers quipped: “Phillip looks like a pint also with his white hair!!”
