- Mandy Holden Bids An Emotional Farewell To 'This Morning'
The daytime TV presenter was hosting a health phone-in with husband Eamonn Holmes and medic Dr Dawn Harper out on the Southbank in London, when a rogue gust of wind blew over a potted plant behind her.
Ruth let out a yelp as the bamboo tree fell and whacked her around the chops in the process.
Eamonn heroically came to his wife’s rescue and pushed the plant back, before a member of the show’s crew came on to remove the offending shrubbery.
"I'm absolutely fine, it's only a plastic palm," Ruth insisted.
The show later sent out a cheeky tweet, writing: “Our @RuthieeL's okay... but the naughty plant has been relegated outside!”
Today’s edition of ‘This Morning’ also marked the last time they will host before returning to their usual Friday slot, as regular Monday to Thursday presenters Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby will return after the Bank Holiday.
Holly has been on maternity leave for the past 11-months, after giving birth to son Chester, and said earlier this month she couldn’t wait to get back to work.
“Working with Phil is wonderful, I count myself incredibly lucky. I’m so looking forward to getting back and sitting on that sofa, and being back with Phil,” she said.
‘This Morning’ airs weekdays at 10.30am on ITV.
