Oh Holly!

Another day, another on-air slip up. This time the presenter in question was This Morning presenter Holly Willoughby. And she certainly made the 28th anniversary of the ITV show a memorable one.

As Holly and Phil scrolled through tweets from the programme’s loyal band of viewers – who shared their favourite memories from the daytime show – the mum-of-three couldn’t have chosen a worse example to share.

“Living in Liverpool, I remember going to the Docks where Fred The Weatherman used to stand on,” Holly read.

Former This Morning presenter Fred Talbot was actually outed as a paedophile and was last year sentenced to five years in jail for his crimes.

Realising her error, 35-year-old Holly swiftly tried to move proceedings on. But that was not before the This Morning crew, including Rylan Clark-Neal, erupted into a fit of giggles.

Viewers quick to pick up on Holly Willoughby’s error

Viewers also took to Twitter to poke fun at Holly’s mistake.

Others, however, had a little more sympathy for the presenter.

There was no mention of the embarrassing on-air moment on Holly’s Twitter feed, but we can just imagine the awkward conversations taking place in the This Morning green room!
