Holly Willoughby injured her back on Tuesday's episode of This Morning and as a result, the blonde beauty had to swap her usual high heels for a pair of flat sandals.

The mum-of-three, who recently revealed a sweet nickname her children have for their grandmother, had a pair of nude heels on at the beginning of the show but was forced to swap them for some open toe sandals after a back injury.

Addressing her shorter stature during the Spin To Win segment, the 40 year old explained: "You might have noticed I'm on this side today, that's because during the show I uncrossed my leg and have pulled my back, because now I'm over 40 that's the stuff that happens.

"So I've got the flip flops on, I can't wear my heels," she told viewers.

Co-host Phillip Schofield remarked: "You can't actually walk out to get the tombola, not at speed anyway.

"It took a long time to get her back in from outside, let me tell you."

Holly added: "They nearly had to wheel me out! If it hadn't been for social distancing I would have been on your back."

The presenter's injury comes after she was left in tears as she bagged herself a role on Midsomer Murders.

Stars of the show Neil Dudgeon and Nick Hendrix appeared on This Morning on Thursday 18 March and took the opportunity to surprise Holly with the amazing news.

Pal Phil, 58, divulged: "We had a brief meeting this morning to discuss how we were best to do this and I think we're best to do it right now and for you to tell my friend here what she doesn't know."

A confused Holly questioned: "What don't I know?" to which Neil responded: "About future stars of Midsomers…

"I’ve been speaking to people upstairs and they’ve been speaking to your people.

"Holly please, I am emboldened here to offer you a role in Midsomer Murders."

In disbelief, Holly, who recently stunned in a pleated skirt, turned to Phil to whisper: "Are you serious?" before clasping her hands up to her mouth.

She then screamed: "Yes!" before tearing up and continuing: "I’ve seen every episode since it started way back when."
