Holly Willoughby jokingly "downed a bottle of Champagne" on live TV before heading home to "homeschool her three children".

The blonde beauty turned 40 on Wednesday and celebrated in style with an episode of This Morning almost entirely dedicated to her.

She received special messages from her showbiz pals, was reunited with some childhood friends and even had a beach set up in the studio so that she and co-host Phillip Schofield, 58, could feel like they were on holiday together.

But surely one of the highlights for the star came when the presenters got a guide on how to make her favourite alcoholic beverage — the Margarita.

However, the pair lost their way during the process and instead made it up as they went along, adding a bottle of Champagne into the mix.

But as she measured the fizz to add to her drink, she instead took a gulp straight from the bottle.

After "downing" the drink, she quipped to Phillip: "I've got to homeschool three kids later when I get home!"

Phillip then admitted: "I can feel it all going to my head!," as the pair giggled their way out of the show, with Holly thanking her cast and crew members for making her lockdown birthday so special.

Holly reminisced on her time at This Morning, which she joined in 2019, after a video of her best bloopers was beamed to the nation.

She said: "I think it's that we just never want to grow up! I think we are still playing… Do I feel any older? I don't know.
