Holly Willoughby Shares The Hilarious Wardrobe Malfunction She Suffered At 10 Downing Street

Holly Willoughby was invited to 10 Downing Street recently for a charity event honouring Together 4 Short Lives, a 'leading UK charity for children with life-threatening & life-limiting conditions'.

As you can imagine, it was a rather important occasion, which makes Holly's wardrobe malfunction even more hilarious.

The 35-year-old popped to the loo, as you do, but when she stood up, she was horrified to find that the zip at the back of her dress had completely broken.


Speaking on This Morning earlier today, she said:

I stood up then I heard this noise and my zip on the back of my dress went completely. This isn't just a little zip, it went from top to bottom.

I am now stood there with no coat, no phone, in the toilet in Downing Street, on my own thinking 'What do I do? I can't walk out, my bum is out!'

She continued:

Dan [husband] thought this was hilarious and told the majority of people he met along the way including all the staff that recommended I use gaffa tape to strap my dress up!

I had to walk around in my coat all night. I did tell [Samantha] because we had a photo together and I said, 'I'm really sorry, I'm wearing my coat my zipper on my dress has gone' and she just went, 'Oh gosh!' and that was it.

And then had my photo with the most photographed man in London!!! X

And this isn't the first time Holly has suffered a wardrobe disaster at the worst possible moment:

I have done it at Clarence House also. There was another incident with a zip and this involved Lorraine Kelly this time.
We were all in the line up waiting for Prince Charles to come in and Lorraine's gone, 'You haven't done your zip up'. I've obviously gone home, got dressed and you know sometimes you just forget to do the last bit and you're waiting to find somebody to go, 'Just zip that up'."

Oh Holly! This is why we love you.
