Holly Willoughby suffered a huge gaffe on This Morning when she accidentally revealed what cake a guest on the show was having at their wedding, who was trying to keep it a secret.
Irish chef Clodagh McKenna was on the programme to show hosts Holly and Phillip Schofield how to bake an elderflower and lemon drizzle cake.
‘This cake is so good and you love it so much that you had it in your wedding cake,’ Holly said.
Clodagh looked shocked as she responded: ‘It’s going to be in my wedding cake in August but I wasn’t going to tell anybody.’
Holly instantly flung her hand to her mouth, as Phillip hung is head in dissapointment.
The chef didn’t seem too upset though, as she laughed in response.

‘Don’t be silly, it’s not that big a deal, I want to give you a hug but I can’t,’ Clodagh said.
Holly said: ‘You said it to me earlier … oh my god I’m so sorry.’
The host’s embarrassment was palpable, as she scrunched up her nose at her obvious blunder.
‘Don’t be so silly, oh my god don’t be so silly,’ Clodagh responded, trying to console Holly.

Phillip sipped his elderflower cocktail in embarrassment as he hoped the awkward moment would pass.
The crew, as well as Clodagh, couldn’t help but laugh at Holly and Phillip’s discomfort.
‘Oh god, what has happened,’ Phillip said, as he continued to sip from his drink.
‘Is that a break? I can feel a break in the distance.’
Clearly still mortified, Holly apologised one last time.
The show today was filled with hilarious moments, as earlier in the programme Phillip said he wanted to fly into space for This Morning.
‘Obviously, I’m not going to pay a massive amount of money for it, you’d hope to be invited at some stage. I’d do it for telly, but I did think what an incredible waste of fuel and resources, it’s not very green,’ he explained.
‘I could do it for This Morning, I could do it as a film.’
Phillip said he’s so eager, he would do it tomorrow.
This Morning airs weekdays from 10 to 12:30 on ITV.
