HOLLY Willoughby screamed and fled the This Morning set in fear while a lumberjack attacked a tree.

The 38-year-old star ran off behind the cameras as timber-sports champion Elgan Pugh demonstrated his wood-chopping skills to her and Phillip Schofield.

Holly ran and hid behind the This Morning cameras

She freaked out as the beefy builder grabbed an axe, running behind the cameramen, yelping: “Oh my god. Oh no. Oh no. What if he lets go of it?”

Holly’s dramatic reaction appeared to amuse Phillip who shouted over to her: “Holly, come over here. Can you imagine how perfect that would be for a winter fire?”

Once the display was over, Phillip joked that she’d fled so far she was in the area half a mile from the show’s Television Centre base, where the Westfield shopping centre is based.

He mocked: “Look at the state of you. You were nearly in Shepherd’s Bush.”

Phillip looked amazed – but Holly fled in terror

She added: “I just had visions of that thing slipping. I was nearly in Westfield.”

The pair later took on Elgan in a wood-sawing challenge known as the ‘double buck’ against Elgan.

However, while the saw-swinging powerhouse made light work of his log, Holly and Phil weren’t quite so fast.

She screamed: “Stop, I don’t want to do it anymore” but Phil roared: “I’m not stopping until we get to the commercial break.”
