This Morning hosts Holly Willoughby, 39, and her colleague Phillip Schofield, 57, returned to the show today after the pair enjoyed a week’s break. But it didn’t take long for them to be caught up in a near-miss blunder, as the former was cheekily mocked for getting a maths equation wrong.
However, it later turned out the presenter was in fact correct, as a producer was forced to admit that they had made a mistake and not Holly.
It comes as Phillip and Holly played the game It's Behind You, where viewers have to describe objects displayed behind the hosts for them to guess.
With every correct answer, the viewer wins more money in the cash prize - the first caller scooped £500, while the following two contestants won £350 each.
At the end of the game, Holly added up the total amount won, telling viewers it was £1,200.

She said: “I’m trying to calculate it in my head. £500 plus £350, plus £350 is £1,200. Is that right?”
Phillip queried: “Is it not £1,300?”
The pair were informed by the backstage crew, that the overall sum was the latter, which was incorrect.
Holly chuckled: “My maths is so bad,” as her co-star quickly moved onto what was coming up later in the show.
