This Morning's Holly Willoughby forced into 'urgent' rule break to prevent Spin to Win chaos

Holly Willoughby was forced to urgently 'break the rules' during Tuesday's This Morning, with the presenter stepping in as a game of Spin to Win looked set to end in chaos.

Holly has had a change of co-host this week, with Alison Hammond, who usually presents on Fridays with Dermot O'Leary, standing in for Phillip Schofield as he takes some time off. And, fter a rather chaotic start to their partnership on Monday, when Alison tackled Holly to the floor after chasing her round the studio, things could have gone awry 24 hours later as the pair oversaw another game of Spin to Win.

The daily game show has a habit of not going to plan, whether that be because the callers answer the phone with 'hello' rather than the day's correct pass phrase, or have their TVs so loud they're playing catch up or can't hear what is being said to them by the This Morning hosts.

Having made it over the first hurdle by answering with the right line and winning £700 after a sound of the wheel, a viewer threatened to come unstuck when it came to the chance of winning the show's much sought after 'bag of shizzle,' featuitung a number of money can't buy items.

She was asked which boyband were joining Holly and Alison later on in the show. The answer was Busted but. having quickly established the caller had no idea whatsoever, Holly began singing a bit of the band's famous hit Year 3000 as a photo of them flashed up on screen. Even that proved to be no help at all, forcing Holly to shout "Just say Busted!" before the woman, after being given the answer by Holly, finally said it.

Spin to Win over-running has proved to be problematic for the rest of the This Morning schedule in the past, with Holly just '#giving away' the answer to prevent that from happening again.
