Holly Willoughby thinks Alison Hammond called her 'Miss Piggy'

‘You know how to make a girl feel good!’ Holly Willoughby left horrified as she thinks Alison Hammond called her ‘Miss Piggy’ in awkward moment

Holly Willoughby was left reeling after she misheard Alison Hammond’s compliment on her wardrobe on Tuesday’s episode of This Morning.

The presenter, 39, was shocked after she believed Alison, 45, had called her ‘Miss Piggy’ shortly before they went on-air – but she had actually said the star resembled 60s supermodel, Twiggy in her denim dress.  

Holly said: ‘Alison Hammond, who is just behind my camera there, went: “You look nice like Miss Piggy”.

Miss Piggy? Holly Willoughby was left reeling after she misheard Alison Hammond’s compliment on her wardrobe on Tuesday’s episode of This Morning

‘And I went, “Miss Piggy?!” with Alison retorting: ‘No Twiggy!’

Holly continued: ‘Literally three seconds before we went on air and she spat her water out across the room!’

A laughing Holly said: ‘How to make a girl feel good, thanks very much.’

Alison said: ‘You look like Twiggy, you look beautiful!’ before adding: ‘I look like Miss Piggy.’

Co-host Phllip Schofield also made a jibe about Holly’s ensemble, saying she looked like an air hostess.

He said: ‘You look like you’re out of Catch Me If You Can!’

Another blunder later on saw Alison realise she had lipstick on her teeth as she spoke about her upcoming documentary for Black History Month.    

She said: ‘Sorry I’ve got lipstick on my teeth’ as Holly responded: ‘I’ve been trying to subtly go to you. It’s on that one. We will definitely do lipstick tips on the show.’               

Holly and her family cut short their summer holiday when new quarantine rules were introduced to ensure she would be back on This Morning on September 1.

The shoot came after Holly lamented the new ‘six person rule’ after England was given updated coronavirus restrictions following a spike in infections last month. 

Talking on This Morning, she asked whether she was going to have to choose between her mother Lynne, 71, or father Terry, over the yuletide season, due to having a family of five.

As it stands, currently, no more than six people are permitted to gather in England – with a few exceptions, which include going to school, work or ‘exceptional life events’.

Breaking these new restrictions will mean fines of £100, doubling for each incident up to £3,200. Holly has three children with husband Dan, meaning just one of her parents would make up the ‘six person rule’.

Discussing the new restrictions with Matthew Wright on This Morning, the ITV star said: ‘A lot of people are thinking, ‘What will this mean for Christmas? What will Christmas look like?’

‘It’s going to be very awkward in my house as I’m a family-of-five, so I’ll have to choose between my mum and dad on Christmas day!’

 To which Matthew, 55, replied: ‘I’m feeling very confused and conflicted. The rules are different everywhere else in the United Kingdom.

‘You can’t have your parents over on Christmas Day but you can go on public transport? For the life of me, I can’t make any sense of it.’

With Holly adding: ‘I guess the other thought is how is anyone going to police these rules. The government are going to have marshals to monitor people.’
