This Mornings Holly Willoughby disgusted as she and Phil open time capsule

This Morning presenter Holly Willoughby was left less than impressed with the contents of a Blue Peter time capsule from more than 40 years ago.

Holly and co-host Phillip Schofield opened the box, which was buried on the BBC show in 1981, earlier this week.

The pair had been excitedly chatting about what was in the capsule as they spoke with Blue Peter legend Sarah Greene.

However, they were left sorely disappointed, with Holly saying: "Did one of the Blue Peter dogs put something inside?"

The trio had expected to find clips and a script from the old show, but instead were met with a brown, sludgy mess.

The box was opened by a specialist as Holly said: "Go for it, let's see what happens. I feel like metal's going to fly off and a spider's going to come out of there."

The presenters then started laughing after realising what was in the time capsule.

Sarah tried to cover the contents and said: "I don't think you need to see."

Holly held her hand over her nose and mouth because of the smell, whilst Phil went in for a closer look.

Later on in the show, it was revealed what had happened to the box.

The metal lining had corroded and attacked the contents, however they did manage to rescue some crisp wrappers and sweet wrappers from the day it was buried.

There was also a disc of a recording of the original Blue Peter theme tune, but it is unlikely to be playable.

Fans were also disappointed to see inside the box.

One person Tweeted: "Howling at the Blue Peter Time Capsule reveal on This Morning."

Another said: "Why just throw it all in? Surely you’d vacuum seal the items to stop the air destroying it all?"

One viewer wrote: "I think Sarah Greene genuinely thought somebody had taken a dump in the box. I thought Blue Peter would have been clever enough to have used a waterproof box and/or packaging."

Another fan said: "Crikey, this makes me feel old. I remember watching when they buried that time capsule. I bet they thought it would be there longer than 41 years!"

This Morning airs weekdays at 10am on ITV
