Holly Willoughby Mocked For Not Knowing How Corn On The Cob Grows

Speaking about growing her own veg, Holly told Phil she'd had some trouble with her corn on the cob.

"I've got some good looking corn on the cob... I mean, the green sprouts coming out the top... I don't know what's happening underneath, that's the problem, I go to dig them up and there's nothing under there," she explained.

Phil, looking very confused - because corn doesn't grow underground - responded: "Corn on the cob grows off the plant though, not underneath... it's not on the root."

Bursting into hysterics, Holly said: "Does it?! Well I'm looking in the wrong place! I thought it was like a carrot!"

The pair could be seen in fits of laughter as Holly realised her mistake, with Phil adding it was no wonder his co-presenter had been struggling with the home grown veg.

And viewers at home thought it was hilarious too, with one writing: "Oh my days you have made my day. That's so funny."

While another added: "Honestly this was so funny, bless her."

"Omg!!! The funniest thing I have ever heard!!! @hollywills and her corn on the cob!!!" tweeted another.
