Holly Willoughby red-faced after accidentally saying 'black poo' instead of Blackpool on This Morning

HOLLY Willoughby was left red-faced and in hysterics after saying "black poo" instead of "Blackpool" live on This Morning.

The presenter was in full flow discussing how pantomimes will adapt this Christmas amid the pandemic when she made the unfortunate gaffe.

As she prepared to quote the chief exec of Blackpool's Grand Theatre from a news article, she said: "Ruth Eastwood, of Blackpoo Grand Theatre said…"

Holly caught her mistake straight away, but it wasn't enough to prevent her, Phillip Schofield and guest Anne Diamond from getting the giggles.

Holly added: "That was unfortunate, wasn't it?"

Panto fans will be able to heckle stars this year — by clicking fingers and stamping feet instead of shouting.

Covid-secure performances mean no booing or ­yelling “He’s behind you” when theatres reopen.

Government guidance says: “Discourage activities which can create aerosol (such as shouting, chanting and singing along).”

Ruth Eastwood said: “There are plenty of ways to be interactive.

"You can stamp your feet, you can click fingers, jump up and down.”

Emily Wood, from Evolution Productions, added: “We’ve spent months planning to get everyone involved.”

Bosses are finalising numbers with venues in Tiers 1 and 2 limited to 1,000 or 50 per cent capacity, whichever is lower.

Tom Beard, at LP Creatives, said: “It’s crazy but we’ve a few tricks ready, like saying ‘Don’t shout or you will get us arrested!’”
