She may be a morning TV presenter with two young children, but Holly Willoughby can still handle a hard drinking session.

The 30-year-old was looking a tad worse for wear as she and This Morning co-host Phillip Schofield downed a whole litre of Agave tequila during a boozy appearance on Alan Carr's Chatty Man show.

After finishing off the bottle, Schofield posted a photo of his friend apparently passed out on a dining table.

He tweeted: 'This was the end.'

Ahead of the drunken candids, Schofield had posted a photo of the trio looking rather composed as they cracked open the bottle, saying: 'This was the beginning.'

Carr often asks for drink requests ahead of his guests' appearances and fulfilled their demand for 100 per cent Agave tequila.

Despite knowing they would have to film a live two hour broadcast of This Morning the following day, Willoughby said she had heard a theory that the brand of Mexican spirit didn't leave a hangover the next day.

When Carr asked why Schofield had requested Agave tequila, the 50-year-old presenter replied: 'Because @hollwills says there's no hangover! @AlanCarr ….. We could bring our own!'

As they pre-recorded their appearance for Friday night's episode of the Channel 4 show, the pair swilled shots from a 27 bottle of Lunazul Blanco Tequila.

Unsurprisingly, the pair ended up drunk.

Schofield tweeted: 'Finished recording the interview
with @hollywills for @AlanCarr on Friday's @chattyman .. On my way home
…pissed .. #tequilaexperiment…

No hangover: The pair claimed they felt fine the following day as they presented This Morning

'That if you drink 100 per cent Agave Tequila…. You don't get a hangover! We've done the bottle!!'

And it appeared the experiment worked – both presenters felt fine as they were up bright and early for the live This Morning broadcast, which kicked off at 10:30am.

He wrote on Thursday morning: 'Remarkable! @hollywills was right, I can confirm that the #tequilaexperiment was a success!!

'Yes, the #tequilaexperiment worked as our appearance on This Morning today will testify :).'
