    Holly Willoughby makes epic royal blunder on This Morning involving Prince Harry and Prince George - watch the moment

    Holly Willoughby gave viewers another priceless moment on This Morning on Tuesday. The 39-year-old couldn't control her laughter after she muddled up the royal succession during a game of It's Behind You, which sees viewers describe an image behind Holly and co-host Phillip Schofield, who must guess the right answer to win a cash prize for the caller. Hilarity ensued after one caller attempted to describe a photo of Prince Charles, giving Holly and Phil the clue: "The next in line for the throne."WATCH: Holly Willoughby makes epic royal blunder on This MorningBut while Phillip pondered his answer for a brief moment, Holly blurted out Prince William, then Prince Harry, seemingly forgetting that he and wife Meghan Markle have stepped back from royal duties, and finally Prince George, before collapsing back into the sofa in a fit of laughter. Luckily for Holly, Phillip was able to correctly name Prince Charles before the time ran out.Phillip is often on hand to bail his co-star and best friend out of sticky situations, but Holly will now have a new sidekick she announced earlier this week she will be hosting a brand new show with Bradley Walsh.

    Storm clouds are gathering over Nicola Sturgeon and the divided SNP

    The Scottish National Party has proved time and again that the rules of political gravity don’t apply to it. It has maintained its astonishing double-digit lead in every poll published since the end of 2014, shortly after the independence referendum which the SNP called for and then lost. There have been troubles along the way, many of which would have holed any other UK party below the waterline. Not least among them have been the scandals involving the building of new hospitals which turned out not to be fit for purpose, worrying gaps in school performance by those from poorer backgrounds and the revelation that Scottish university applicants are being short-changed by the self-imposed cap on domestic students as a consequence of the SNP’s adherence to their policy of “free” tuition. But still Nicola Sturgeon, the First Minister and SNP leader, appears to move smoothly forward, as untroubled by such matters as the Scottish public seem to be: two polls published at the end of January put her party on course for an astonishing 50 per cent of the vote in next year’s Holyrood elections. The nationalists have maintained an iron discipline in their own ranks, both parliamentary and at grassroots level, that any other party would envy. Criticism, such as it is, of Sturgeon and the wider party leadership is muted at most. Party discipline is credited, at least in part, for catapulting the SNP to its pre-eminent position in Scottish politics and must, therefore, be preserved. But counter-intuitively, when Scottish government failures seem to have no negative impact on the party’s standing, the feeling grows that perhaps a greater degree of dissension from the party line might be welcome.

    An exodus of British Muslims is happening right under our noses – and still we’re asking whether Islamophobia exists

    British Muslims – many who have lived here for generations – are packing up their belongings, parting ways with their loved ones, established careers and the country they were born in to move to somewhere safer. In recent years, the rates of hate crimes against religious minorities in the UK has rocketed, and for some, it has just become too dangerous to stay. There is an exodus happening in Britain, and no one has even blinked an eye.Contrary to the mainstream narrative that veiled and bearded people are flooding through our borders, a significant number of Muslims are leaving their homeland because of rising rates of targeted religious hate crimes. Despite this reality, harmful discourse in the media, politics and places of power continues to contribute to an increasingly hostile environment that is driving British Muslims away.

    Hong Kong's 'coffin home' dwellers stuck inside amid coronavirus outbreak

    This three-meter square bunk isn't just Simon Wong's bed. It's his home. All his belongings crammed inside this one tiny space. These notorious so-called 'coffin homes' in Hong Kong aren't a pleasant place to live at the best of times. But since the coronavirus outbreak, Wong spends all but two hours a day in here, out of fear of catching the disease. (SOUNDBITE) (Cantonese) COFFIN HOME TENANT, SIMON WONG, SAYING: "Now? I can't go to the mainland, no more afternoon activities, I rarely go out. I go home as soon as I finish my tea and grocery shopping, I come home and become a recluse and just watch TV. I can't do anything." Wong's family cut contact with him many years ago. This squalid, cramped space has been his home for more than five years, but he's lived in places like this for more than a quarter of a century. The unemployed 64-year-old receives the equivalent of 385 U.S. dollars in social welfare a month. Two thirds of it goes on rent. The rest pays for two meals a day - normally rice and pork. (SOUNDBITE) (Cantonese) COFFIN HOME TENANT, SIMON WONG, SAYING: "I don't go out anymore, there are no more gatherings, even though it's small, it still affects me. Unable to buy face masks, I have to be frugal about it, I'll use one for two days." Wong's bunk space is one of 18 "coffin homes" in this dusty subdivided apartment. The close proximity of his neighbors, especially those who have recently returned from mainland China, have him on high alert. (SOUNDBITE) (Cantonese) COFFIN HOME TENANT, SIMON WONG, SAYING: "If we knew they were seriously ill, then we'd kick them out, as if we'd call 999. If there was a situation like that, where they are coughing seriously then of course we'd send them out." The impact of the coronavirus outbreak is being felt not just by those infected by the virus and their families. It's made the lives of those in poverty even more unbearable still.
