Holly Willoughby loses her cool as miniature pony poos on the This Morning studio carpet
The presenter dissolved into fits of giggles at the mishap
Holly Willoughby struggled to keep her composure as chaos broke out during an episode of This Morning when a miniature pony pooed on the studio floor.
The mishap took place during a segment about ‘guide ponies’ which are miniature ponies trained to help those with sight problems.
Willoughby, who is known for her giggly outbursts with co-host Phillip Schofield, was already beginning to chuckle at their furry guests when one of the horses had an accident on a rug in the studio.
It was perfect comic timing as Schofield had just been commenting on the differences between guide ponies and guide dogs, joking: “A dog is unlikely to poo on the kitchen floor.”

Monet the pony was clearly listening as he decided to it was the ideal moment to relieve himself on the studio floor.
Schofield managed to keep his cool, remarking: “Perfect timing, absolutely perfect timing. I’m sure a person with impaired sight would find that extremely useful on the kitchen rug.”
