This Morning: Josie Gibson screams as she accidentally falls into lake on inflatable obstacle course

Josie Gibson was left screaming on Thursday’s This Morning after she accidentally fell into a lake while hosting a competition segment from an obstacle course.

The presenter, 36, left presenters Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield in hysterics in the studio as she exclaimed: ‘That wasn’t mean to happen! My mic is really expensive…’ 

Proving to be ever the professional, Josie continued to host the competition segment while ‘treading water’ at the inflatable obstacle course in Berkshire.

This Morning then panned onto the presenter being lifted out the water as she attempted to get back onto the inflatable obstacle course.

To which Holly said: ‘Josie, are you alright?’ with Phil quipping: ‘This is not the most dignified!’

After getting back on the obstacle course, Josie said: ‘I am so sorry, my sound man is so angry with me, very expensive piece of kit on my back.’

Later on the show, Josie offered an update as she said: ‘The mic is fine, I am on dry land, think it’s safe, I am here! I was so busy treading water not to destroy it [the microphone].’

The camera then panned onto the men who helped rescue Josie from the water, to which she joked: ‘Luckily I had David Hasselhoff, AKA Ben, here to help me out the water!’

This isn’t the first tumble Josie has had while hosting her segments for This Morning and earlier this month, Josie collapsed onto the ground after battling through the UK’s biggest inflatable obstacle course, the Inflatable5k, in York.

In true Bridget Jones style, the former Big Brother star struggled to get over, under and through various blown up challenges, huffing and puffing the whole way. 

Dressed in a lilac and grey jumpsuit and a pair of trainers, Josie was followed by a camera crew as she crawled, climbed and ran over different parts of the course.

The reality star was encouraged by Alison Hammond and Dermot O’Leary who were watching from the comfort of the This Morning studio in London. 

After making her way through a small tunnel, Josie rolled out onto the grass and collapsed while trying to get her breath back. 

Adding to the humour of the section, Eye Of The Tiger played out while she attempted the challenge, and a triumphant fanfare rang as she completed the circuit.
