When asked what age she turned on Sunday, Fleur quipped: “21!”

Phil told viewers: “She’s got another big occasion coming up, this June marks her 10th year working as our green room host.”

Holly asked: “Do you remember your first day?”

Fleur said: “It was nerve-wracking but it’s all good now. I’ve loved it, every minute of it.”

Phil told viewers: “If you watch This Morning a lot, you’ve probably seen Fleur before. When she’s not making teas and coffees, she’s partial to the odd on-screen cameo.

“So we thought we’d embarrass her by showing some of them.”

They showed one moment when Fleur was “roped in” to be a model for one of the show’s beauty segments.

Another moment saw Fleur clean up after a pony pooed on the show’s set.

Phil said: “Well as it’s her 50th birthday, we thought we would give her another cameo role, her biggest yet.

“We’ve made her her own 50th birthday corner with a birthday cake.”

Is that a tear?! She just wiped tears!

Fleur then sat on a red throne as she was surrounded by birthday balloons.

As Fleur looked overwhelmed by the surprise, Holly said: “I can’t tell whether this is the best or worst birthday present you’ve ever had.”

Fleur replied: “It’s good.”
