After the clip was played, Phillip said: “Somebody looked like they walked into the wall there.”

However as there was no sound playing on the clip, it would have been hard to tell if Alexandra was meant to do that or if it was an accident.

Later on, he pulled up the clip on Twitter and zoomed in on Emma. Again, there was no sound so it was hard to tell if it was a blunder or not.

As the clip was shown Holly said: “Oh yeah, well spotted you.”
