This Morning viewers, who recently slammed the show’s segment on the man ‘with the world’s biggest penis,‘ were left in hysterics at Holly Willoughby’s embarrassing text blunder during an ad break on Thursday’s programme.
The presenter, who faced a backlash earlier this week for her ‘insensitive’ comments to Strictly’s Rose Ayling-Ellis, explained how the autocorrect feature had changed the wording of a message she had sent to a friend, much to Phillip Schofield’s amusement.
She said: “To the person that I have just sent a text message to very quickly in the break where I was about to say ‘I need a new one,’ and sent it and thought ‘Oh I’ve just got away with that with five seconds until we’re back on air’.

“I then looked down at it and one has been replaced with bra, and it said ‘I need a new bra,’ I don’t need a new bra I need a new one, I completely apologise.”
Schofield then said: “We’ll never know what the one is, what is the new one that you actually want?”
To which Willoughby responded: “It was actually a barbecue.”
He then asked if the person who had received the message had replied and she read out the response.
It said: “Thanks for letting us know but I’m not sure this was meant for us.”
Viewers at home took to Twitter to air their amusement at the mistake.
One person commented: “Gotta love that. Brilliant! Even better that it was while Holly was on TV.”
“Sorry but Holly has just made my day,” added another.
A third joked: “Holly must be messaging her staff.”
Pitching in, fourth said: “I love this. I often do things like this myself Holly, it must be our generation as not much older than you.”
