Miriam Margolyes says Holly Willoughbys skirt is too short during chaotic This Morning appearance

Miriam Margolyes created chaos on This Morning after suggesting Holly Willoughby’s skirt was too short.

The actress, 81, appeared on the show on Wednesday’s (30 November) episode to chat to Phillip Schofield and Holly – who recently reminisced on her time on I'm A Celeb – with the Harry Potter star also answering viewer questions as an agony aunt.

However, things didn’t go quite to plan during a tangent where Miriam told Holly she was glad her outfit was “covered” with her script and referred to a crew member’s outfit as a “p***y pelmet”.

During a debate with the hosts, Miriam spoke about skirt lengths and said she thinks people shouldn’t be allowed to wear what they want to work after she was banned from wearing shorts to auditions.

Defending someone’s right to wear what they want, Holly said: “I think it’s very rude of a person to suggest what you should wear, you should wear what you like, shouldn’t you?"

Miriam replied by calling out a member of the This Morning production team, remarking: “No, when you go to an audition you’ve got to wear what is acceptable.

“I mean one of the ladies who works here, she's just wearing a p**** pelmet", adding: “It's far too short!”

Holly and Phil both gasped in shock with Phil asking the actress: “Well who was that?”

To which Miriam replied: “She's a lovely girl. Ella.”

As Phil then urged the camera crew not to pan to Ella and show her skirt, he said: “Do not point the camera at Ella, do not point a camera at Ella, you look gorgeous.”

Holly then added: “I don’t think my skirt is too different, I think we’re twinning here.”

But Holly wasn’t exempt from Miriam’s joking as the TV personality snapped: “I’m glad you’re covering it with the bit of paper!” causing Holly and Phil to erupt into laughter.

Fans took to Twitter to share their reaction to Miriam’s TV appearance, with many loving her humour.

One person wrote: “Miriam Margolyes always has me in stitches.”

Another shared: “Please can you have Miriam on more regularly she is an absolute scream.”

While a third person added: “Miriam Margolyes the gift that keeps on giving”.
