As the show returned from a break, Holly and Phillip Schofield went through the rest of the programme.
But it was Holly who had to introduce the VT of Peter Andre visiting one of Britain’s haunted castle, Muncaster Castle in search of ghosts.
Giggling as she reached the end of the link, Phillip noticed that Holly had sped up and didn’t waste time in telling the viewers the reason why.
“You’re so scared,” he said.

“I’m going to tell you right now,” Phillip began to explain before Holly jumped in and admitted that she has a fear of ghosts.
“You know why, because the moment this hits I’m going,” the mum of three declared.
Confirming that she wouldn’t be sticking around, Phil added: “She’s leaving the studio. She’s going out.
“You were hurrying through that so that you could go.”
Explaining what she would be doing whilst Peter conducted his investigation, Holly stated: “I’m going to go to the loo. Five minutes that’s all. I’m slightly anxious.”
As Phil finished Holly’s link, the presenter pretended to collapse before getting up again and reassuring everyone that she was ok.

But Holly’s five minute break wasn’t as peaceful as she would have liked.
Returning to the studio after the haunted ghost segment had ended, Holly revealed that Phil scared her.
“I went to the loo and I’m sitting on the loo and there’s this roar at the door and it’s him.”
During the ghostly segment, viewers were given a terrifying account of what one man saw at the spooky castle.
“Back in 1995 I was at the castle as part of an investigation.

“I was in the tapestry room and this person turned left into the tapestry room and this black silhouette figure walked down the length of the room and walked straight through me,” he confessed.
This Morning continues on ITV, weekdays from 10.30am.
