HOLLY Willoughby was told to lay off the booze by celebrity chef James Martin after she launched into hysterics about his "crushed nuts".
The presenter got the giggles after dunking her biscotti into armagnac as James showed viewers how to make the Christmas biscuits.
Stirring the mixture all up, James said: "You have to stir it all by hand, not with a machine."
Asked "why" by an intrigued Holly, James replied: "You want me to say it? You're going to crush your nuts."
Giggling Holly said: "Oh good. I wasn't expecting that. No one wants crushed nuts at Christmas."
James said: "I knew that was going to happen that's why I was refraining from it.
"That's enough alcohol now."
Holly then asked whether she could use her biscotti as a straw with her alcoholic beverage.
