This Morning presenters Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford felt the force of nature as a plant blew into them mid-interview.
Their ITV morning television show was being hosted outside on London's Southbank when a gust of wind uplifted a plant on set.
Holmes quickly pushed it back and then checked on Langsford, who said: "I'm absolutely fine, it's only a plastic palm."
They were mid-interview with Dr Dawn Harper, discussing vaping and e-cigarettes.
The plant was quickly removed from the set by one of the crew.
This Morning tweeted a photo of the plant after the incident, writing: "Our @RuthieeL's okay ... but the naughty plant has been relegated outside!"
Viewers on Twitter reacting immediately, with one writing: "First @EamonnHolmes sneezes then the tree hahahah daytime TV at its best @itvthismorning."
Another was worried about Langsford, writing: "Poor Ruth when the tree fell on her."
