This Morning brought back its floating weather map today (October 3), with hilarious results.

The ITV daytime show was celebrating its 30th anniversary, when Alison Hammond tried out its iconic weather map at Liverpool's Albert Dock.

However, the stand-in weather host accidentally pushed a man dressed as a sailor off the map and into the water.

Hosts Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby couldn't believe what they witnessed, but we could have bet a lot of money on that happening!

"It's gonna be a little bit wet in Northern Ireland as you can see," Alison joked.

The 'sailors' were there to help Alison jump across the Irish Sea on the map, but instead she pushed one of them into the water.

"Put your cape around him!" Phil shouted.

Hammond apologised as the man climbed back onto the map, before she wrapped him up in her multi-coloured outfit.

This what live TV is all about...
