This Morning’s Holly Willoughby took to Instagram to share her freshly grown radishes in a triumphant post.
The presenter can be seen grinning in a selfie holding a glossy radish in her garden. She also shared a closer look at the radishes in bloom still on their leafy plant where they appear to have been growing successfully.
“That’s the face of someone who utterly embarrassed themselves on national TV over their lack of horticultural knowledge and yet has somehow managed to grow a radish,” wrote Holly alongside the photos.
She then joked, “That is a radish right?”
Holly was referring to yesterday’s episode of This Morning where she told co-presenter Philip Schofield that she had been digging under her plants looking for the corn on the cobs she had been trying to grow and was disappointed not to find them.
Philip then told her that would be because corn on the cobs grow off the plant, not underneath the soil and collapsed into hysterics, as Holly joined in with embarrassment.
Phil poked fun at the incident by leaving a comment on the post of Holly’s radishes saying, “did you need stepladders to pick it from the radish tree?”
Chef Jamie Oliver joined in the fun by adding, “Haha it was very funny bless you holly you’re the best.”
Many of Holly’s 7.1 million followers also saw the funny side, jokingly commenting, “that’s a carrot” and adding, “you may never live the sweetcorn thing down, but at least you’ve got something to brag to Schofe about.”
