Holly Willoughby was left terrified on today's instalment of This Morning after a huge 15-stone pig was brought into the studio.

Chris Tarrant's ex-wife, Ingrid Tarrant, appeared on the show to talk about how she 'swapped' her husband for a pig.

The animal in question is George, a 15-stone pot bellied Kunekune pig, who Ingrid is in an "emotional relationship" with.

Ingrid told Holly and Phil that Chris was never much of an animal-lover and that she practically had to smuggle new pets into their house.

"They are super clean, very hygienic," Ingrid added.

"They're very fussy about their beds. If I lived in a bungalow I'd let them sleep in my bed.

"He's super affectionate."

Well one person who wasn't particularly fond of George was Holly, who scrambled up onto the This Morning sofa in terror as the pig explored the studio.


"Well I have a little life rule don't I that anything bigger than a medium sized dog, I'm instantly a little bit wary of."

Holly even hid behind Phil as George the pig began to wander in her direction.

"I told you he'd come round here. I told you," Phil said.

"Holly he's fine, he's not going to eat you," Ingrid insisted.

Phil wasn't fazed at all and was feeding George chunks of apple as he explored the studio and Holly found out more about their story.

Sneakily, Phil tried to lure the pig closer to Holly by continuing to feed him apples. Holly caught on to Phil's cheeky plan and climbed back up onto the sofa.

"I'm bringing him closer and closer to you," Phil giggled.

"You're so wicked. I can't help it, I can't help it. I'm just not very good with things like this," Holly said.

"I'm starting to get more found of him I just didn't know what he was going to be like - and he's big!"

Some This Morning fans were in stitches over Holly's reaction to George.

One fan posted on Twitter saying: "Holly really ain’t feeling that pig" with laughing face emoji.

While another wrote: "Holly scared of the pig" adding a laughing face emoji to their tweet.

"I’m howling. Holly’s on the back of the sofa, scared" a third added.

Another said: "Holly’s so funny, Phil trying to get closer to sofa for a reaction."

This Morning airs weekdays from 10am on ITV.
