Holly Willoughby couldn’t help giggling during a This Morning feature about choosing the best, affordable barbecue.

The 37-year-old joined Phillip Schofield on Wednesday’s show as chef Phil Vickery talked them through the various options on the market.

When Vickery showed them a range of small, disposable barbecues, he noticed Holly struggling to hold it together and asked why she was laughing.

She explained: “I’m laughing because I once had a barbecue at my new house that I moved to years ago. Phil came, Ant and Dec were there, Keith Lemon came.

“This was, like, my moment! And I turned the barbecue on and the gas had gone in the bottle!

“I had to go to the garage and buy six of those [disposable barbecues] and they were all over the garden. And we all sat around a sausage!”

Phil, however, assured Holly: “And a damn fine barbecue it was to!”

Holly also revealed she’s the chief barbecuer in her house as TV producer Dan Baldwin refuses to do it!

“I’m not a good barbecuer but I have to barbecue because Dan refuses to do it,” she said.

“He will not do it, so it’s always me. He won’t barbecue, and I hate barbecuing because when you have dyed hair it’s very porous and absorbs all the smells and I go around stinking like a bonfire!”

When Vickery asked why Holly didn’t just “make” her husband do his share of barbecuing, she laughed: “That’s a different question for a different day!”

Holly and Phil returned to This Morning on Monday following a two-week break over Easter.

While Phil told fans he was off in the Maldives with his family, it’s unclear what  Holly was doing, although she did share a sunny swimsuit selfie over the weekend, suggesting she was also somewhere hot.
