This Morning viewers were left in a state of confusion yesterday when the show’s host Holly Willoughby told a guest that she could relate to her dramatic story of cheating.

 

The anonymous mother told Holly and her co-presenter Phillip Schofield how her husband of ten years had been cheating on her with another man and that she only realised his infidelity through hearing the stories of people like her husband through her work with the Samaritans.

 

She explained to the hosts: “I believe he was being blackmailed, his behaviour became more and more erratic.”

“I was a Samaritan at the time and was talking to a number of people in his position and the more they were telling me the more I suddenly realised this was happening in my own home.”

 

Rather unexpectedly 35-year-old Holly responded to this statement by saying: “Sounds like my life.”

 

While Philip did glance at his colleague with a concerned expression, Holly continued on flawlessly with her next question.

 

 

Naturally viewers picked up on the strange nature of the exchange and took to social media to discuss the comment.

 

One Facebook user wrote: “Did she say ‘sounds like my life’!?  Hopefully she’s talking about the past not the present.”  While another said: “No man in their right mind would cheat on her.  They would be mad.”

 

According to The Sun, a source close to the presenter claimed there was no great secret behind Holly’s statement as she was just “engaging with her guest and empathising just like she always does”.
