FURIOUS Holly Willoughby was exposed for plotting to fake the moment she tasted mussels live on This Morning.
She was supposed to be enjoying a dish inspired by chef Phil Vickery 's trip to the Shetland Islands in Scotland.
But after teasing her co-host Phillip Schofield about an earlier gaffe when he thought his pulled pork dish was vegan, Holly got a taste of her own medicine.
Joking about his own mistake as he tucked into the mussels, Phil said: "I've got the vegan ones here. these are absolutely stunning."
Holly pushed, saying: "As far as you're concerned… are those mussels?"
Annoyed Phil lashed out at Holly by giving away her secret to viewers.
He said: "Well alright then. I was going to let this go, but you have just said 'I can't eat them, I don't like mussels, I'm going to break a bit of bread off and put it inside this shell'.
"There you go, I just flexed my muscles."
Horrified Holly covered her face as she screamed in embarrassment.
She explained: "You know my thing about mussels. I have to eat them in the dark."
Holly added: "Now you have just outed me…", as she picked up a mussel to try.
"I'm not going to look at it, but look mussel…"
Chomping on the fish dish, Holly said through gritted teeth: "It's very nice."
She then laughed and added: "It is actually very nice."
Unable to let the tiff go, Holly told Phil: "Oh I so want to chuck something at you, but I can't because of Covid."
Smug Phil laughed as he continued to tuck into his tasty mussels.
