There’s always the risk of a boo-boo with live telly, isn’t there? And this morning – on This Morning – presenter Holly Willoughby owned up to a huge blunder.
When Holly and co-host Phillip Schofield returned after an advert break, Holly revealed she had a BIG secret.
“I have a confession to make,” she told viewers, to which Phillip giggled and the nation waited with baited breath…
“I’ve left all of my scripts with all of my questions for today up Big Ben so I am just flying without wings right now.”
Holly and Phil had been seen earlier, starting the show at the top of The Elizabeth Tower to celebrate the return of Big Ben’s bong later today.
The bongs have been turned off for maintenance, but today they return in all their glory.
It was here, in all the excitement, that Holly left her script with all of her notes and questions for the rest of the morning’s show. Gulp.
Buddy Phil found the whole thing hilarious, joking that someone had been asked to run back up the 334 steps of the famous landmark to retrieve them.
It was only a few weeks ago that Holly was left red faced after Gino D’Acampo made a bit of an x-rated blooper about body hair.
And a few weeks before that Phil and Holly could barely talk as they wheezed with laughter over a designer vagina segment they had on the show.
The pair had previously got the giggles after Holly had threatened to wet herself after accidentally announcing that she and Phil would be “tasting Fearne Cotton’s cupcakes” on the show.
Today however Holly finished the show, sans script, like a true professional adding that her notes were ‘out there somewhere!’
