ITV This Morning's Holly Willoughby tumbles to the floor as show cuts to break

Holly Willoughby was quite literally floored on today's episode of This Morning.

The ITV daytime show host was joined by Alison Hammond following her regular colleague, Phillip Schofield, taking a week off. But the former Big Brother star was forced to apologise to Holly as she accidentally sent her flying, with her landing on her bum on the floor.

The presenters jokingly chased each other around the studio before cutting to the break. When they returned they showed a part of the show that had happened as the programme cut.

Returning from the break, Holly said: "Well as you can see Alison caught me and now we're back on the sofa." Alison said: "I'm so out of breath!"

Holly said: "Not only did you catch me, but we sort of collided together." Alison agreed as she said: "It was like a rugby tackle."

Her co-host said: "Yes! And I ended up on the floor. This is what happened." The show cut to a clip of the unseen bit from the break.

The short video saw Holly running away from Alison before the latter caught up with her. The Big Brother star then caught Holly in her arms when she fell.

Alison apologised to Holly by saying: "I'm so sorry, you were in my direction. I had to take you out!" They joked that the clip had been rewound to make sure that Holly didn't flash her knickers while getting up off the floor before showing it to viewers at home.

The presenters fell about laughing about it as Alison apologised profusely.
