Awkward moment ‘itchy’ Holly moves away from presenter in head lice masterclass

Holly Willoughby awkwardly moved away from This Morning reporter Alice Beer today during her head lice masterclass.

The presenter confessed she felt ‘itchy’ while watching Alice’s head lice busting clinic.

Worried Holly said: "It does make you itch talking about it."

She compared the lice to contestants from Love Island when Alice revealed they can have 18 partners in a row.

Alice said the problem, which is usually associated with primary school children, could be made worse because of selfies.
