Holly Willoughby has admitted that she forgot her line during her Midsomer Murders cameo and was "so embarrassed" to act.

The presenter, 40, spoke abut her upcoming role in the iconic TV series on Thursday's This Morning during an interview with the show's DCI John Barnaby star Neil Dudgeon.

Holly joked: "Blink and you miss it!", she added: "It was one of the best days of my life – it was like Disney World for me! Seeing it happen in real time, how quick you all work, how you all know what you’re doing, it was just so brilliant."

To which Neil replied: "Well we were all impressed – Holly just stepped up ‘boom boom boom’, delivered her lines marvellously and flawlessly! It was like we had a Royal visit."

With a giggling Holly insisting that he was being "very kind" as she insisted that this was "not quite true".

The ITV presenter said: "You are being very kind. That’s not quite true, I forgot my line! I was so embarrassed to open my mouth and act and I walked around and said to anybody that would listen to my two lines repeatedly at them over and over again!"

During the interview, Phillip Schofield was quick to grill Holly over any spoilers, he asked: "But are you killed?"

With Holly remaining silent, as she insisted: "I can’t say anything!"

The ITV star was offered the role during an interview on This Morning back in March and in May the presenter shared a picture of herself on set.

Holly took to her Instagram page to share a video of herself with the director’s clapperboard at the time, writing: "Today is the day… @officialmidsomer…excitement levels off the chart!”
