Holly Willoughby was left squeamish on Thursday's This Morning as her ITV co-stars tucked into squirrel risotto and buttermilk fried squirrel.

During the latest instalment, the hit ITV chatshow discussed reports following the Exmoor Squirrel Project encouraging people to eat grey squirrels in a bid to save the native red squirrel.

And as such, Phil Vickery decided to rustle up a grey squirrel risotto and buttermilk fried squirrel as some of ITV's stars sampled the dishes.

However, a squeamish Holly didn't sample the dishes as she admitted: "No thank you!", adding: "It's so weird, the thought of it, I can already feel it in my throat… makes me feel a bit" as she put her hand to her mouth.

While Phil admitted: "I understand this is a highly-emotive subject and if you are a vegetarian or vegan, then this is horrific to imagine!"

And as Phil tucked into the dishes, Holly was left grimacing and she even put her notepad over her face.

Giving his conclusion, Phil said: "I don't have a problem with taste, texture or anything – I wouldn't know what it was!"

As Holly begged: "Shall we leave that there…"

It's been an eventful few weeks on This Morning as last week Holly was forced to spit out a "gross" pancake after a surprise topping.

As part of Pancake Day, Holly and Phillip took part in a pancake tasting segment – where the toppings were hidden from them and they had to guess what flavour it was.

After sampling unusual combinations, such as strawberries with balsamic vinegar, the last topping didn't go down well – as it was gravy.

Holly and Phil had no clue it was gravy with the delighted duo thinking it was in fact syrup.

To which Holly naively said: "Please don't be something gross… if that's gravy I'm going to not like it."

And just seconds after tucking into the pancakes, Holly quickly expressed her dislike as she ran to the back of the room with her napkin to discretely spit out the food.

"What was that? That's horrible!" Holly exclaimed with Phil adding: "That's beefy of some sort. It's like OXO!"

Holly then turned the sign around to reveal it was in fact gravy as she pointed out: "It is gravy! You're [producers] sick, you're sick, you're sick!"

This Morning continues on weekdays at 10am on ITV.
