This Morning's Holly Willoughby was left a bit red-faced on today's (November 12) episode after managing to mix up two different Loose Women presenters.

While the daytime TV presenters all know each other rather well, it seems that Holly may need to check her monitor a bit more carefully next time.

As she and Phillip Schofield were handing over to the Loose Women studio, Holly greeted the show's presenter by declaring: "Hey Andrea [McLean]."

However, it was actually Christine Lampard, who was left in a rather awkward spot as she said: "Oh hello. It's not..."

"Oh hi Christine," Holly interjected, realising her mistake. "Sorry darling, I couldn't see you!"

"I'm sorry if I disappointed you anyway," Christine joked as everyone burst out laughing.

"Not at all... sorry!" Holly insisted, though her Loose Women counterpart luckily saw the funny side.

"You never see us in the same room," Christine joked.

Phillip didn't let Holly forget it, though, as once Loose Women finished revealing what was coming up, he joked: "Thank you Ruth [Langsford]. Thanks Ruth!"
