Lynda La Plante makes ‘This Morning’ presenters snigger with blow job gaffe – watch

Screenwriter reduces Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby to giggles with slip of the tongue

Lynda La Plante reduced This Morning presenters Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby to laughter earlier today with an unfortunate slip of the tongue.

The award-winning screenwriter was discussing an exchange between two characters in Tennison, her upcoming Prime Suspect prequel series, when she accidentally said “tint and a blow job” instead of “tint and a blow dry”.

Though La Plante barely acknowledged her gaffe, Schofield and Willoughby were unable to hide their amusement and struggled to keep a straight face as the screenwriter continued talking. Watch a clip of La Plante’s slip-up below.

After the show had gone off air, La Plante took to Twitter to apologise for her unfortunate slip of the tongue, saying: “I meant blow dry! Sorry!”

Willoughby responded graciously, tweeting back at La Plante: “You never know what’s going to trip you up in a show!!! We giggled for a long time after! X”
