Holly Willoughby gags as she samples INSECT bread on This Morning... after fans complain that her ￡350 Abracadabra slogan knit sweater is 'far too pricey'
She’s a long way from the Australian jungle, but Holly Willoughby was still given the opportunity to sample some of the dubious delights that might be on offer for campmates on the current series of I’m A Celebrity… Get me Out Of Here!
The 36-year old gagged while trying insect bread as she presented a segment dedicated to the popular ITV show during Wednesday’s edition of This Morning, much to the amusement of co-hosts Phillip Schofield and Alison Hammond.
Reluctantly accepting a slice of the questionable fare, Holly looked visibly repulsed as Alison revealed it contained seventy dried and ground house Crickets.
