‘Just give it a double flush’: Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield can’t control their laughter as This Morning segment descends into chaos due to hilarious toilet joke


Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield struggled to control their laughter during Wednesday’s This Morning after Holly, 40, made a cheeky toilet joke.

The moment unfolded after a viewer submitted a photo to the programme that showed a python curled up inside her toilet. Phillip, 59, explained: ‘A woman was shocked to find a massive python curled inside her toilet bowl which she almost sat on.’

The snap prompted guest presenter Matthew Wright to remark: ‘I wouldn’t want a brown snake either because they are venomous,’ to which Holly replied: ‘Just give it a double flush!’

Holly, Phillip and Matthew then burst into laughter.

Doting father Phillip said in full: ‘We’ve got one more picture here: a woman was shocked to find a massive python curled inside her toilet bowl which she almost sat on.’

Staring at the shocking photo, Holly said: ‘That is the stuff of nightmares.’

It was then that Matthew queried: ‘Pythons, are they stranglers or biters? They’re not biters.’

Holly quickly replied: ‘You still wouldn’t want one in your loo,’ prompting Matthew to say: ‘I wouldn’t want a brown snake either because they are very venomous.’

It was then that Holly started to giggle, joking: ‘Often to be found in a loo.’ Phillip, also giggling, added: ‘Nobody wants a brown snake.’

Holly then delivered her hilarious one-liner, saying: ‘Just give it a double flush.’

It comes after Holly revealed that she found her cameo on the hit ITV series Midsomer Murders ‘so embarrassing.’

The TV presenter was speaking to co-host Phillip about her time on the show.

She said: ‘I thought it was just interesting people would turn to a series about murder and death for escapism. People have found it a joyous escape from the horrors of real life.

‘My episode involves a murder mystery country house party weekend. Barnaby and Winter turn up to investigate. Everyone is trapped on this island with a murderer.’

Matthew remarked: 'Pythons, are they stranglers or biters? They're not biters. I wouldn't want a brown snake either because they are very venomous'

Even though she thought her performance was bad, Holly admitted she received a lot of moral support from friends and family.

‘Everybody I know who has watched all of Midsomer says it’s one of their favourites we’ve ever made,’ she said.

‘I said to them ”Thanks for having me, it was one of the best days of my life”’ and revealed that she said her two lines ‘to anyone who would listen.’
