The gaffe made co-host Phillip Schofield and guest Anne Diamond chuckle as they struggled to continue with the conversation.

Holly joked: “That was unfortunate, wasn’t it?!”

Phillip posted about the blunder on Instagram Stories later in the day, including the caption: “Blackpoo?”

Popular Holly was recently blamed by co-host Phil for the trials on I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! getting easier after she co-hosted the show with Declan Donnelly in 2018.

Referring to the Harm-oury trial, in which Ant and Dec helped contestants AJ Pritchard and Jessica Plummer find stars to win meals for the camp, Phil said: “Dec is a lot nicer this year, Holly cheated by helping them and they never did that before.”

He went on to reveal that Dec, 45, had confirmed that it was Holly who had influenced him to help the celebrity contestants.

Phil explained: “Dec said yesterday in a text to both of us: ‘I never ever helped in the trials ever, until Holly taught me how to, they never would have got six stars without my help’.”

Phil again repeated his claim on the following day’s show, telling Holly: “I think the help sort of crept in when you were there.”

Holly replied: “Oh, you're blaming me?! How is this my fault?!”

Phil continued: “I think you changed the dynamic because it had always been the two guys who were little but quite tough and then suddenly in you go, softer heart, helping people.

“Now, I've got a feeling that they've thought: ‘Let’s do it like that for a bit’.”

Holly joked: “I can't possibly comment. I don't know what you're talking about.”

Meanwhile, records from the company accounts Holly shares with husband Dan Baldwin, Roxy Media Ltd, show that the TV presenter banked a cool £2million in 2019.

The star has her This Morning and Dancing On Ice hosting gigs plus commercial endorsements to thank for her bumper pay cheque.

According to The Sun, Holly, who has lucrative deals with Dunelm, Marks and Spencer and Garnier, earns around £600k a year from her ITV hosting duties.

The star works four days a week on This Morning and one night a week on Dancing On Ice while it airs in the winter, while she takes school holidays off.
