Phillip Schofield forced to step in as Holly’s mic fails in awkward tech blunder

Phillip Schofield was forced to take over from Holly Willoughby as he microphone malfunctioned live on This Morning.

The presenters had ventured outside to watch Aled Jones perform Silent Night, but as she introduced the singer, Holly couldn't be heard.

Phil quickly stepped in and read the autocue instead, while Holly stood beside him smiling at the camera.

After Aled's beautiful performance, Holly was given a handheld mic while presenting outside.

When she returned to the studios inside, the crew fixed her microphone and the show went on.
