Dancing On Ice: Why was Holly Willoughby in hysterics?
The promo clip for the upcoming series got off to a funny start.
Dressed in tinsel and reindeer antlers, Phillip, 58, declared: “It’s time to murder another carol!”
Holly joked: “Don’t say that! I think this is secretly the moment you’ve been looking forward to.”
The mum-of-three poked fun at her singing abilities, comparing herself to West End star Phillip.
She said: “I’m not a West End star like you, but I can naturally pull the notes out of the bag.”
As the pair began to sing, Holly soon got the giggles and fell to the floor after attempting to hit the song’s high note.
The moment left Phil in hysterics while his co-star was busy laughing to herself.
She said: “Who am I trying to kid!”
