Holly Willoughby risks This Morning chaos as she tempts ‘UK’s naughtiest duck’ with her own cup of tea
This Morning hosts Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby were left admiring the ‘UK’s naughtiest duck’ who made an appearance on their show.
Ham, a four-year-old Indian Runner Duck, lives in a pen in the garden of owner Charlotte Taylor-Dugdale’s home in Chorley, Lancs.
The mischievous animal, who was hand-reared by his family, is best friends with Charlotte’s son and even drinks cups of tea.
And that’s exactly what he wanted to when he met Phillip and Holly on Wednesday’s This Morning.
After explaining how Ham likes to do the school-run with her, and often wanders into the house, Charlotte untied Ham’s wings and let him loose in the studio.
‘Do you want some tea?’ Holly probed the guest, holding the cup near.
But instead of flapping about or causing any chaos, as you may expect a duck to do, Ham ventured towards Holly’s tea cup for a few sips.
‘He’ll double flap, don’t panic he’s just stretching,’ Charlotte warned.
But Holly didn’t seem scared at all, telling the duck: ‘Do you want a stretch and a cup of tea?
‘Ooh you do like a little cup of tea!’
It wasn’t long before Phil swooped in to take the tea away, after Ham made a little mess.
‘We’re going to take that away because I don’t know how healthy it is for you to have a lot,’ Phil said.
This Morning airs weekdays from 10am on ITV.
