Kate Lawler downs a £400 shot and jokes ‘ITV will pay for it’ after Alison Hammond tempts her to cause mischief on This Morning
Kate Lawler downed a £400 shot and joked that ‘ITV will pay for it’ after being tempted by Alison Hammond as This Morning descended into chaos on Thursday.
The presenter, 43, joined hosts Holly Willoughby and Alison via a live video link from a pub in Scotland as she explained how viewers could spend the £1million cash prize that’s up for grabs in their new competition.
During the segment, Kate explained how Leonardo DiCaprio had once splashed out in £1600 in the Loch Lomond venue, as she clutched on to an expensive shot.
‘I’m allowed to smell it, but I’m not allowed to drink it,’ she told Alison and Holly.
‘Just do it!’ Alison cheekily exclaimed as she urged Kate to down the shot.

‘Shall I just…’ Kate hesitated before throwing her head back and sinking the drink.
‘They’ll pay for it. ITV can pay for that!’ she laughed as she told the bar staff.
Holly and Alison were seen giggling and covering their faces in the studio while Holly joked that she would pick up the bill herself if she had another.
It comes after Kate hit back at body shamers after the star was cruelly targeted online in light of a series of Instagram snaps.
The TV personality was accused of ‘triggering anorexics’ and being in a ‘serious calorie deficit’ over on the social media platform after posting a holiday selfie.
She snapped back at these comments as she discussed how she believes there is a ‘double standard’ on social media where plus-sized women are praised for showcasing their curves but slender ones are trolled.
She told The Sun: ‘If someone is on Instagram showing their curves and grabbing their rolls, it’s all, “You go girl, well done you!”
‘They’re celebrated, called real women. Well, why can’t a real woman be a healthy size eight? It’s crazy.’

To Kate’s shock some followers even compared her physique to that of fellow Big Brother contestant Nikki Grahame, who died in 2021 aged 38, after a lifelong battle with anorexia.
‘I honestly couldn’t believe it. To compare me to her is outrageous and so insensitive to Nikki’s family.’
Kate stated she is currently a size eight and at 5ft 6in, she weighs 8st 4lb and has a BMI of 19.2.
Her BMI is therefore in the ideal range as the NHS explains a healthy BMI is between 18.5 and 24.9.
While the star does look slim, she assured that it is due to a fast metabolism and she does not exercise aside from walking her dogs.
