Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford hit by plastic plant on This Morning

This Morning presenters Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford felt the force of nature as a plant blew into them mid-interview.

Their ITV morning television show was being hosted outside on London's Southbank when a gust of wind uplifted a plant on set.

Holmes quickly pushed it back and then checked on Langsford, who said: "I'm absolutely fine, it's only a plastic palm."

They were mid-interview with Dr Dawn Harper, discussing vaping and e-cigarettes.

The plant was quickly removed from the set by one of the crew.

This Morning tweeted a photo of the plant after the incident, writing: "Our @RuthieeL's okay ... but the naughty plant has been relegated outside!"

Viewers on Twitter reacting immediately, with one writing: "First @EamonnHolmes sneezes then the tree hahahah daytime TV at its best @itvthismorning."

Another was worried about Langsford, writing: "Poor Ruth when the tree fell on her."
