When you head away, you've got to pack the essentials – you know, clothes, toiletries, suncream... and an iron.

Wait, what?

Yep, Stephen Mulhern was perusing a couples' luggage for a game on the latest episode of In For A Penny this evening (April 20), and viewers spotted a very bizarre choice that probably took up a hefty chunk of that weight limit.

Yep, it was an iron. Because everyone needs an iron when they go away, right? Well, we suppose if you've got a lot of shirts, you've got to keep them neat.

Still, viewers at home found the choice very bizarre, taking to Twitter in their droves.

One wrote: "Imagine taking an iron on holiday!"

Another then questioned: "Who packs an iron to go on holiday [?]"

However, a third made a very valid point about the, erm, necessity: "Fancy packing an iron in your suitcase to go abroad on holiday - and no fecking ironing board!"



In For A Penny made its debut as a show in its own right this year after initially starting off as a segment on Ant & Dec's Saturday Night Takeaway.

It was pretty warmly received as well, with some viewers calling Mulhern "TV's funniest presenter" as he won them over with his charm.

We imagine there are plenty more shenanigans are in store for us next week, too. Maybe even another iron?

In for a Penny continues next Saturday (April 27) at 7.30pm on ITV.
