Eamonn Holmes Can't Pronounce The Word 'Thoroughbred'
We all struggle to pronounce certain words, don't we? If you're interested, we can barely say specific without stuttering.
It's something stand-in host Eamonn Holmes had great sympathy with, as he revealed a certain word left him tongue-tied.
"I used to be a farming and sports reporter," he said to his co-host and wife Ruth Langsford. "Horses played a part of what I did. I found it difficult to say..."
He immediately started giggling as he grasped the pronounce the word.
"Thoroughbred!" he eventually said. "It's hard to say when you're doing a live report on a horse and you're just stuttering."
Thoroughbred is not the only troublesome word Eamonn, 61, struggles to get out.
"I can't do anomaly," he said, surprising himself when he said it correctly first time.
Meanwhile Ruth, 60, added she falters when having to say "colonel", due to the word not sounding how it is spelled.
This Morning viewers were quick to add which words they often have difficulty saying.

"Being Northern Irish, I struggle to say towel, flower and shower," one viewer said on Twitter.
Another added: "I struggle with the words 'defibrillator', 'Worcestershire sauce' and 'similarly'. And occasionally the word 'no.'"
A third chipped in: "I can't say 'prodigy' or 'tragedy' or anything that's similar to those."
Ruth and Eamonn have returned to host This Morning this week, while usual hosts Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby get the half-term holidays off.
The popular pair previously hosted the ITV daytime programme every Friday, before they were recently replaced by Alison Hammond and Dermot O'Leary.
And viewers were pleased to have Eamonn and Ruth back on screens.
"So great to see Eamonn and Ruth back and for the whole week. Missed them," wrote one viewer.
"Yeah Eamonn and Ruth are back!" cheered a second. "All is right with the world."
This Morning continues weekdays from 10am on ITV.
