Holly Willoughby injured her back filming today’s This Morning and was forced to swap her high heels for a pair of flip flops.
The presenter managed to pull her back while uncrossing her legs and joked she’s already feeling the effects of turning 40 earlier this year.
During today’s programme, Holly and Phil switched places for the daily competition Spin to Win.
‘You might have noticed I’m on this side today, that’s because during the show I uncrossed my leg and have pulled my back, because now I’m over 40 that’s the stuff that happens,’ she told viewers.
‘So I’ve got the flip flops on, I can’t wear my heels.’
Schofe teased: ‘You can’t actually walk out to get the tombola, not at speed anyway.

‘It took a long time to get her back in from outside, let me tell you.’
‘They nearly had to wheel me out! If it hadn’t been for social distancing I would have been on your back,’ Holly laughed.
Holly celebrated her 40th birthday on This Morning earlier this year and was moved to tears as she was presented a particularly poignant cake while Phil read her a poem.
And as she wasn’t able to celebrate the milestone with her family, she wore the dress her mother Linda wore on her 40th birthday.
Sharing pictures of them both in the same outfit, Holly said: ‘This photo of my mum was taken on her 40th birthday at the party she had in the garden.
‘I remember this day so clearly. It’s a strange thing to reach the age you remember your mum being!
‘I asked her if she’d kept the dress and of course she had … Strange moment zipping it up this morning, wondering how she felt on her big day …
‘I can’t be with my mum or dad today but wearing this in her honour makes me feel closer to them … love you mumma!’
This Morning airs weekdays at 10am on ITV.
