The stars were talking about Julian’s panto Dick Whittington when Holly started coughing
HOLLY Willoughby was left red faced today when comedian Julian Clary told her she needed to “suck on a Fisherman’s Friend” after she had a coughing fit on live TV.
The This Morning presenter collapsed into a fit of giggles as he made his comment following a series of cheeky innuendos.
Julian appeared on the show to talk about his upcoming adult pantomime Dick Whittington and couldn’t resist making a few double entendres.
Holly, who found the whole thing very funny, started coughing as he chatted away.
Julian told her: “You need to suck on a Fisherman’s Friend!”
Fisherman's Friend is a strong menthol lozenge that is often used for coughs or sore throats.
Amused Holly went pink before giggling away with Phillip Schofield as they tried to continue interviewing Julian.
Holly revealed she is taking her kids to see the pantomime, which is aimed a parents as well as children.
Meanwhile the TV presenter has been joking about having a fourth child now Dancing On Ice is back – because she carried two of her babies while hosting the show in the past.
Her co-host Jayne Torvill, told OK! magazine: "Holly told me she’s a bit worried because every time she does Dancing On Ice she gets pregnant.
"She’s had all three of her children while hosting the show."
