Holly Willoughby gushed over her ‘clever’ dog Bailey after nailing an impressive trick on Thursday’s This Morning.

It was ‘Bring Your Dog To Work Day’ for the presenter, 42, as she delighted in showing off a routine, which she insisted hadn’t been practiced before.

Much to the delight of her co-starPhillip Schofield, 60, Holly goaded the Golden Retriever into laying down before planting a treat on her paw.

She said, ‘Right Bailey, we’ve never done this before. Sit. Lie down, lie down… leave it, leave it, leave it, leave it… Get it bailey!’

When the pooch took the treat on her command, she exclaimed, ‘Oh, good girl!’

'She gets it from her mum!' Holly Willoughby gushed over her 'clever' dog Bailey after nailing an impressive trick on Thursday's This Morning

Phillip was full of praise for Holly and her furry friend, saying, ‘That’s a temptation if its on your paw. That’s amazing, genius, so clever.’

Holly told Bailey, ‘You’re so clever,’ before adding to viewers, ‘She get’s it from her mum.’

This Morning recently came under fire by angry viewers when a squirrel was cooked live on Thursday’s episode.

Holly and Phil were served with arisotto made from the rodent by chef Phil Vickery on the ITV daytime programme last week.

It came after a wildlife campaign group claimed grey squirrels should be served in restaurants.

Holly was filled with shock at the thought of the dish – but Phillip was hungry to get stuck in, admitting it was ‘a bit chewy’ as he scoffed up the grub.

Fans quickly took to Twitter, where they blasted the ‘cruel’ and ‘inhumane’ segment.

One wrote: ‘I think it’s disgusting that this morning is laughing and joking about eating grey squirrel live in tv surely they are wildlife and should not be killed for meat? Very cruel and inhumane.’

Really? It was 'Bring Your Dog To Work Day' for the presenter, 42, as she delighted in showing off a routine, which she insisted hadn't been practiced before

Another added: ‘#ThisMorning cheerfully discussing culling squirrels and murdering all cats. Nice. Humans are evil.’

A third chimed in with, ‘Just seen on This Morning re Exmoor Squirrel Project encouraging people to eat Grey Squirrel the world has gone mad.’

They had been discussing that the Exmoor Squirrel Project, which recently claimed the non-native creatures could be served up in stews, pies and kebabs.

The group is seeking to eradicate grey squirrels on Exmoor, so they can be replaced with native red squirrels.

Organisers are also in discussion with two restaurants about serving dishes containing grey squirrel.

The project is encouraging local homeowners and landowners to stop feeding grey squirrels, volunteer to monitor woodland for them, and in some cases, with the proper training from the project, set traps in gardens or on land to catch the squirrels.

Conservationists say red squirrels, which have lived in the UK for around 10,000 years, could become extinct here within a decade because of the invasive grey squirrel.
