Holly Willoughby gets the giggles live on This Morning as Alice Beer tells her about how woodlice are called 'pissabeds' in the Netherlands because they stop you wetting the bed

The TV star, 37, couldn't stop laughing after the consumer expert, 53, revealed on the show earlier today that in the Netherlands they are called "pissabeds".

During her segment, Alice began talking about woodlice.

Holding a pot of them, she said: "These are like little armadillos, they're so cute."

Holly added: "I don't mind these at all."

Alice continued: "Do you know these were in Norwegian mythology because they used to apparently stop you bed-wetting.

"So they call them 'pissabeds'. They do, they stop you wetting the bed."

Holly could then be seen falling into a fit of giggles and turning away from the presenter and her co-host Phillip Schofield in an attempt to stop laughing.

Alice added: "I know! I knew you'd like that."

"Pissabeds" is, in fact, the Dutch word for woodlice, and according to legend in the Netherlands eating them was believed to cure bed wetting.

The consumer expert told her that in Norwegian legend the bugs are said to help stop bed-wetting

It comes after Holly revealed she is taking her kids out of school so they can be with her in Australia as she films I'm a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here!

She is set to replace Ant McPartlin later this year when the popular series returns.

She will present alongside pal Declan Donnelly while Ant continues his recovery from drug addiction.

Speaking for the first time about her new job, Holly said she has spent the summer organising the "logistics" of her move Down Under.

She told co-host Phillip Schofield: "When I first found out, it's obviously bitter sweet, but it was exciting.


"You try and work out when you'll go and how long for.

"The kids are coming with me so I've been speaking with the school seeing how that's all going to work.

"Dan's coming with me, then all of a sudden that's it, logistics are all sorted and you go oh, there's going to be spiders and stuff."
