Holly Willoughby was left in fits of giggles as she tried to introduce an item about an unfriendly chihuahua on This Morning, describing the animal behaving like a "haunted Victorian child".
The This Morning host cracked up as she told Thursday's viewers about the saga over rehoming him the dog because of his difficult temperament.
Prancer's adoption advert went viral with its description of his man and child-hating ways, and Holly couldn't contain her laughter as she read out some of the highlights.
She laughed so much that she couldn't finish her introduction as she said: "(Owner Tyfanee) went on to compare him to a haunted Victorian child…"
Tyfanee had fostered Prancer but found it was impossible to socialise him with her family and other pets, and sent out a crushingly honest adoption plea as she desperately searched for a forever home for him.
In the ad, she wrote: "There’s not a very big market for neurotic, man hating, animal hating, children hating dogs that look like gremlins."
Describing her family's life as being "in the grips of the demonic Chihuahua hellscape", she described some of his problems.
Tyfanee wrote: "Prancer came to me obese, wearing a cashmere sweater, with a bacon egg n cheese stuffed in his crate with him. I should have known in that moment this dog would be a problem.
"He was owned by an elderly woman who treated him like a human and never socialised him."
But the story had a happy ending as Tyfanee called into This Morning with Prancer's new owner, Ariel, who explained that they were the perfect fit for owner and pet.
Ariel said: "I am a single woman, I am also a lesbian, I live with another female, I have no other animals, my work hours are good, I live close to my work so I can come home if he needs anything.
"But he is still absolutely demonic when he meets men."
Holly, 40, was also overcome with laughter last week when an interview with a man who claimed to be the secret son of Prince Charles and Camilla was interrupted by a sweary rant from his wife.
Australian Simon Charles Dorante-Day was arguing over video call with royal biographer Robert Jobson about the validity of his claims.
