When asked about his unfortunate accident, Ally told the show of how he took a tumble from a boat while on holiday in Portugal.

McCoist suffered cuts and bruising following the incident during his summer break in Faro with his wife and kids.

But he revealed his embarrassment when crowds of tourists started laughing at him after witnessing the mishap.

He said: “I fell off a boat when I was with the kids in Portugal.

“What happened was we went on this little boat trip from Faro out to one of the islands for a bit of lunch, a beautiful 45 minute boat ride.

“I had the big bag with all the stuff in it and the kids went off first.

“It was quite embarrassing actually because there was this young girl holding out her hand helping the elderly off the boat and she had the audacity to hold her hand out for me.

“Never one to knock back the opportunity I took her and hand and slipped and went head first into the rocks.”

The co-host insisted he was stone cold sober during the incident.

The 56-year-old former Scotland star added: “After I fell into the rocks there was the initial two seconds of sympathy from the people behind to see I was alright.

“Once they knew I was alright they started killing themselves laughing.

“I got ‘Are you alright son,’ and when I said I was fine the whole place was in uproar laughing.”
