Holly Willoughby has shown her gardening prowess after “utterly embarrassing” herself on This Morning during Tuesday’s episode.

On the show the TV presenter, who was recently shut down by co host Phillip Schofield over scone debate, spoke of her struggles to grow fresh sweetcorn despite succeeding so well in other areas of her garden.

The mum of three, 40, confided in her friend Phillip Schofield on air when she admitted that she was unsure on how to grow the popular vegetable after finding nothing when she pulled the plant up.

It was only when her co-host Phillip informed her that sweetcorn grows above ground that she realised her mistake.

Laughing at her mistake, Phil looked at her shocked and said: “But corn on the cob grows off the plant.”


The pair burst into fits of laughter as she recounted how she had been left disappointed when she pulled up several of her sweetcorn storks expecting to see corn on the cobs.

But the TV presenter didn’t let a bit of embarrassment hold her back as she showed off her impressive green thumb later on in the day with a photo of her latest vegetables from her garden.

Holly, who recently shared a rare snap with her sister Kelly, beamed as she held up home grown wonders and shared her impressive work with her 7.1 million followers on Instagram.


She captioned her post: “That’s the face of someone who utterly embarrassed themselves on national TV over their lack of horticultural knowledge and yet has somehow managed to grow a radish … that is a radish right?”

Her celebrity friends were quick to comment on her gardening achievement as they poked fun at her lack of gardening know-how.

Philip Schofield wrote: “Did you need stepladders to pick it from the radish tree??” with two cry laughing emojis.
