Holly Willoughby was pranked by her co-stars on This Morning today.

The This Morning studio turned into the land of Wizard of Oz today as Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield celebrated Halloween in style.

And as well as lots of spooky segments and an incredible sing-song in the studio, the TV duo took part in an extra special challenge at the end of the show.

Dressed up as Dorothy and the Scarecrow, Holly and Phil went head-head with their co-star Alison Hammond - who was wearing a Lion costume - as they tackled a string of Halloween tasks.

After Alison was forced to put her hands in some mystery boxes, it was 38-year-old Holly’s turn to see if she could guess what was in the wooden container just based on feel.

But, as we all know from her stint as a presenter on I’m A Celebrity, she isn’t exactly good when it comes to creepy crawlies and began screaming as soon as she put her hands in the box.

While Phil and Alison were hysterically laughing at Holly’s terrified reaction, viewers at home could see that all she was touching was a wind up mouse toy.

"I really don't want to put my fingers in there,” she squirmed.

"Is it something that's alive? Is it an animal? Is it something that's going to bite me?"

Holly added: "I'm really not very brave and I'm OK with that. If something bites me I'm going to freak out."

Elsewhere on the show, the whole team got into the spooky spirit with Alison Hammond appearing as the cowardly lion and Trinny Woodall playing the Tin Man

This Morning took a trip over the rainbow to celebrate 80 years since the release of the classic film.

The studio had a yellow brick road, while the cast of the musical production of Wizard of Oz also made a special appearance.

Phil, 54, also showed off his incredible singing voice, as he opened the show with his own rendition of 'If I Only Had A Brain'.
