The presenter was terrorised by a black rook called Russell Crow when she and co-host Phillip Schofield met a woman who had taken the bird under her wing (so to speak) and was letting him live with her.
But as the rook appeared on set, it immediately began misbehaving by flying around as Holly and Phil attempted to present a link.
This left Holly shrieking and using Phil as a human shield to protect herself.
She didn’t fare much better when they eventually sat down to interview Russell’s owner, Helen Motteram, and her husband Tristan, either.
Getting spooked by being sat so close to him, Holly jumped into Phil, who joked about the previous day’s incident involving Monet the pony’s little accident.
“[Holly] said, ‘If that bird flies at me, I’m going to do a Monet’,” he laughed.
But while Holly managed not to disgrace herself, the same could not be said for Russell, who followed in Monet’s footsteps by pooing on the ‘This Morning’ sofa.
Watch the full interview with Russell the rook in the video below.
‘This Morning’ airs weekdays at 10.30am on ITV.
