Holly Willoughby has revealed her disappointment after failing in ANOTHER attempt to secure a Guinness World Record.

The 37-year-old is desperate to secure a place in the record books but despite trying various bizarre challenges throughout her career, she’s yet to achieve that coveted status.

And sadly it wasn’t meant to be on her latest attempt.

On Thursday’s episode of This Morning, Holly was given a really odd challenge – to set a Guinness World Record for time taken to dress five baby dolls.

“I’ve never ever done [a record], I’ve tried one with party poppers, Christmas jumpers… I think [Phillip Schofield] might have three!” she said.

“So, today I’ve got to put babygrows and nappies on babies, I’ve got five of them [dolls] to do.”

Her challenge was overseen by the editor of Guinness World Records Book and an an official adjudicator, who told Holly all nappies and babygrows had to be fastened fully, nothing could be ripped and she could dress the dolls in any order she wanted.

She had to complete the challenge in two minutes or under.

A clearly nervous Holly said during her attempt: “I’ve never done this once. I’m really going for it and I really want it. I’m really trying. If you could hear my heart now… I’m really trying!”

“I’m all fumbly!” she shouted, as the editor pointed out if Guinness Records were easy then everybody would have one!

There was added pressure for Holly as she took on the challenge at the very end of This Morning which meant she was up against the clock to get finished before the show went off-air!

Sadly, she ran out of time!

Phillip quipped: “Maybe you are the best at failing?”

Holly laughed: “I will take that!”

Phil also pointed out that Holly could attempt the record another two times off-air, saying they could “stay here all afternoon” if she wanted to practice.

“I’m so disappointed,” said Holly.

This Morning viewers also told Holly it was hard luck and said dressing five baby dolls in nappies and babygrows in two minutes is probably harder than it sounds!

This Morning airs weekdays at 10.30am on ITV.
