Holly Willoughby was left in tears on Monday's This Morning after she was completely hoodwinked by a hilarious prank. The segment saw Carol Elliott – played by an actress – go for a brand new makeover for a school reunion. However, 'Carol' burst into tears when she saw her look on live TV, and Holly quickly intervening to help her out. Trying to cheer Carol up, Holly said: "You have a whole wardrobe and people push you out of your comfort zone, it all happens a bit quickly… Please don't worry. What we'll do is, we'll take you downstairs and you can be in charge and you can go through the rails and you can have a look and find something that you like, and if it's the make-up, the hair, or anything, we can change it."
Holly kindly reassured her while trying to deal with the disastrous situation, adding: "You look really beautiful but I know how it feels when it's not quite right." However, disaster struck yet again when the pair were driven to a special lunch – only for their car to crash! When Holly saw the crash, she gasped, saying: "Oh my God, what is happening," before suggesting they go to a break. However, Phil jumped in and revealed it was an April Fool's Day prank, causing the TV presenter to break down in tears of relief.

She said: "Oh my God this is so awful. Oh my God, I was panicking so much. Oh my God you – I can't swear but I really want to. I can't believe you've just done that to me… That's the best slash worst April Fool's ever." She then joked: "I hate you all! I can't tell you, that was so awful. It's too easy. Well done though! It's a lovely car that you've just trashed. I'm so relieved that wasn't real."
