Holly Willoughby screeches 'is this actually happening' as This Morning goes live to tourist attraction Gobbler's Knob

HOLLY Willoughby was in hysterics today as This Morning went live to a tourist attraction called Gobbler's Knob.

The park in Pennsylvania, USA, is famous for hosting Groundhog Day every year on February 2nd.

Holly, 39, teased ahead to the segment on This Morning with co-host Phillip Schofield but she burst into laughter.

Today the groundhog seer gave his forecast during a major snowstorm, and records dating to the late 1800s show Phil has predicted longer winters more than 100 times. 

It's not the first time Holly and Phil have been caught out by a rude blunder on the show.

Holly was in hysterics last year when she accidentally sent This Morning viewers to a "rude website" called Big Marrows

The pair had been chatting with the owners of the UK's largest pumpkin when Holly asked: "Is there a website for that?"

The twin brothers, Brothers Ian and Stuart Paton, explained they spent six hours a day tending their monster pumpkin.

As the hosts waved goodbye to their guests, Phillip giggled: "And also I think we should say really be very careful before you Google Big Marrows.com…"
