The pair were forced to call for the crew to bring in buckets to stop water dripping on them, as they presented the ITV daytime show.
Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield found a leak in the 'This Morning' studio
Holly told viewers the rain outside the show’s studios on London’s Southbank had begun seeping in from the ceiling, sparking concern from Phil.
“The thing is it’s up in the wires!” he said, worried that there could be an electrical fault.
The leak was particularly ironic considering the show had set up a live Periscope stream of a dripping tap, following the popularity of the live stream of the Drummond puddle in Newcastle-Upon-Tyne, which caused an internet frenzy on Wednesday (6 January).
The studio underwent a massive overhaul in September last year, to coincide with Holly’s return to the show from maternity leave.

Meanwhile, the mum-of-three has just been unveiled as the last ever cover star of FHM magazine, which is closing after more than thirty years on the shelves.
Holly's FHM cover
Holly strikes a pose in a series of stunning boudoir-style pictures inside the mag, commenting: “It’s the end of an era and to be part of the final issue before FHM takes its place on the big shelf in the sky, has been a real honour.
“We’ve both grown up together – I’ve had 3 children and you’ve had 314 issues but now, with a heavy heart, it’s time to bid you a fond farewell.”
