Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield were left in hysterics on ITV’s This Morning as Holly fluffed the morning rundown.
“Perhaps Holly is trying to get her BFF Phillip a few more votes at the NTAs this year – as both are going head to head for the Best Presenter gong!” – ITV
This Morning, celebrating 30 years on air later this year, has always been a magazine show with a mix of content. From the serious, the probing, the cookery and fashion to music and interviews. However viewers over the years have enjoyed possibly more than the planned – the unexpected, the production cock-ups, the wayward guests and of course when the presenters get things wrong.
Earlier today the ITV series had another reason to make viewers chuckle when Holly announced one item was airing at 5.05pm, Phillip joked: “How long is the show today? I’ve got stuff to do! What are you doing today? This is not a rehearsal!” Getting it wrong for a second time, Holly said: “I’m so sorry. Five past ten… what time is it now? Oh, you’ve missed it!”
Later in the show Holly said This Morning were giving away £7 a month in a competition, obviously the prize was considerably bigger at £7,000 a month!
Holly joined the series in 2009 taking over from Fern Britton as the female lead on the show. Phillip joined as a regular in 2002, however had made several guest-hosting stints previously.
