You know that sinking feeling you get when you hear a coin go "thunk" on the floor?
Holly Willoughby was left embarrassed when she knocked over a rare coin in a blunder on This Morning today.
The TV presenter and her co-star Phillip Schofield were discussing royal memorabilia on the ITV show this morning as they fronted another episode where they paid tribute to the late monarch and shared stories about the now King Charles III. However, things got a bit tricky when Holly found herself knocking over something quite expensive.
As she segued into the next segment to talk about newspapers from the day of the Queen's passing, Holly moved to look at the papers on display and accidentally knocked a bag over. She was left quite embarrassed by her blunder.
"It's only a bag, it's only a bag," she started to say, as the bag fell over. However, when the bag dropped, it hit a coin over that had been displayed in a velvet case, which could be heard clanging against the desk.
As everyone in the studio burst out in laughter, she joked: "I'm just going to step away, I'm just going to step away," as the expert continued to talk about the newspapers and the different tributes to the Queen.
"I'm not going to touch anything. I'm not like this in museums I promise," Holly joked as she moved to the next part of the desk, which was displaying a wide range of royal memorabilia including coins, newspapers and books.
