Pony poop on live TV has Holly in stitches

By Lucy Mapstone

This Morning's Holly Willoughby could barely contain her laughter when a pony defecated on the TV studio's carpet during a live broadcast.

Willoughby and Phillip Schofield had been hosting a segment about guide ponies as an alternative to guide dogs when one of the animals suddenly relieved itself on the floor.

Schofield had been discussing the issue of ponies going to the toilet on the floor of a person's house when the incident happened.

Willoughby immediately fell into fits of laughter.

Schofield said: "There we go, absolutely perfect timing."

Willoughby was unable to speak for several moments while trying to maintain her composure.

She eventually said: "That was my favourite thing I've ever seen."

The trainer, who had accompanied the pony on screen, said: "He just wants to make himself known on TV for the wrong reasons."

For the remainder of the segment, which saw the trainer speak of the positives of having a guide pony, Willoughby struggled to keep a straight face.

She said: "I'm so sorry, it's just because he's done a poo on the floor and it's sent us all a bit loopy."

A member of the TV crew had to come onto the set to clean up the mess with two large bin bags.

Viewers were left in hysterics as they took to Twitter to share their amusement.

One wrote: "I can't believe I am blessed enough to have watched that guide pony disaster live on #ThisMorning."

Another added: "Couldn't stop laughing about what the horse had just done live on TV #ThisMorning."
