Alice Beer apologised today after Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield pointed out a blunder she made on This Morning.
The consumer expert, 55, appeared on the ITV programme today from her home in Wiltshire as she spoke about the announcement about a freeze in stamp duty for houses under £500,000.
Speaking outside a property, Alice informed viewers about savings that could be made for those looking to buy a house.
But she was left cringing after making a slip-up as she spoke about the VAT reduction involved in the hospitality industry.
Explaining how much an average dinner of £45 would cost, she said it would amount to £45,000.
The comment left Holly and Phil and Phil stunned as they yelped: “Where did you go?!”
Alice instantly recognised her error and she joked: “That was a Nando’s!”
It wasn’t a good day for Alice as she also accidentally slammed a door in the cameraman’s face.
As she ventured into a property, she forgot to hold the door open for the cameraman.
Realising that he had been locked out, she ran back and exclaimed: “Sorry Andy, I shut the door on you!”
