And through Friday’s instalment of This Morning, Holly Willoughby, 41, declared that she ‘hadn’t had a drink,’ as she explained the incident, and insisted she was ‘weirdly effective’ following the autumn.

The TV presenter revealed that she has been so intent on winning the last ever show that she was more focused on snatching a chunk of cardboard from Fearne Cotton, 41, than on where her feet were going.

What happened? During Friday’s This Morning, Holly Willoughby insisted that she was sober throughout the Celebrity Juice final and fell down ‘steep’ stairs as a consequence of her very competitive nature

Holly was an original team captain on Celebrity Juice alongside Fearne Cotton, and the pair returned for a one-off episode because the show ends after a 14-year run.

She ended up tumbling down a flight of stairs as she became very competitive during a tense game to gather pieces of cardboard on the ITV comedy panel show.

Keith, whose real name is Leigh Francis, said: ‘It has been 14 years of me life. Maya Jama, who’s on the last episode told me she began watching it when she was seven.

‘Unsure what a seven-year-old is doing watching Juice, she should’ve been in bed! But yeah that made me feel old. 

‘I assume after I look back I’ll think aye, that was an enormous a part of me life. It’s rare to do a show for that long, but by eck it was fun! The most effective times! I do feel a bit sad but it surely’s also exciting to see what happens next!’

Reflecting on saying goodbye to the show, Keith admitted he ‘teared up’ and hugged his wife Jill Carter when he got here off stage after they wrapped up filming.

‘I got a bit emotional at the tip. I do not think that bit is in. I used to be in like some type of emotional bubble,’ he continued. 

‘It was a bit like a dream, but I used to be attempting to cherish the day. I got here off stage and just hugged my wife and teared up. It’s making me tear up now just excited about it.’
