Cast your minds back to January 2016, and you'll remember the hilarious moment when Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield rocked up to work at This Morning still drunk, following the National Television Awards the night before.

With the 2019 NTAs due to take place tonight (Tuesday 22nd January), Holly has shared a throwback of the funny moment to her Instagram page, urging fans to vote for the pair again.

She jokingly wrote, 'If I could remember this it would probably be one of my favourite tv moments ever... Voting for the @officialntas closes at 12pm... eek!!!!! @thismorning @dancingonice @imacelebrity ... if you would like to vote for any of your favourites... the link is in my bio... 🧘‍♀️🧘‍♀️🧘‍♀️🧘‍♀️.' [sic]

Amused fans were quick to comment on the post, with one writing, 'Probably the best moment on TV... EVER! 😂'. Another wrote 'Definitely my favourite tv moment!!'.

A third then added, 'Hope we get a round 2 of this 😂'. [sic]

Holly started the show in January 2016 saying, "You might notice we are still wearing the same clothes. I haven't been home yet, I came straight here."

Phillip then added, "We are in a proper mess", with Holly adding, "We can only apologise, but thank you so much for making this happen, it really does mean the absolute world to us. We celebrated on behalf of each and every one of you."

Re-live the hilarious moment below:

Phillip later opened up about the iconic TV moment saying, “That’s not a stunt we’d pull lightly, although we didn’t know we were doing it in the first place, it just sort of happened.

“I like to think we know where the line is. I do agree that we may have crossed the line, but it was a one-off."

Meanwhile, both Holly and Phillip are nominated again this year, with Holly being tipped to end Ant and Dec's 17-year reign of winning the Best Presenter Award.

Holly Willoughby is up against Ant and Dec, Phillip Schofield, Graham Norton and Bradley Walsh in the Best Presenter category, do you think she has a chance?
