The 36-year-old used co-host Phillip Schofield as a human shield and hid behind him in a bid to avoid the black rook known as Russell Crow.
She was heard squealing as the pet bird flew around the studio despite his owners insisting he didn’t usually behave like this.
“Isn’t it funny how they come towards you?” Phillip quipped as Holly was seen burying her head into her co-host shoulder in an effort to hide as Russell approached her.
She tried to explain her skittish behaviour, saying: “I just don’t want to panic it, that’s all.”
Phillip could not help but see the funny side as he told guests Helen Motteram and her husband Tristan: “She said, ‘If that bird flies at me, I’m going to do a Monet’.” He was referring to the pony that went to the toilet on the rug live on the show yesterday.
Ironically, things just got worse as Russell eventually returned to his owner but chose the moment to go to the toilet on her.
Phillip, 55, was seen handing a tissue to Helen to wipe the poo off her leg and the This Morning sofa.

Isn’t it funny how they come towards you?
Russell Crow's owners were on This Morning to talk about their strange pet and how he has even started to come between them.
Animal behaviour expert Helen revealed that she had seen Russell looking poorly near an Italian restaurant when she decided to care for him.
“I saw him near the doorway and I just couldn’t believe it,” she explained, saying that he had poor feather breakage and crooked feet.
“He was in quite a bad way,” she added, saying that if she’d taken him to an animal sanctuary they would have euthanised him, so instead to nursed him back to health at home.

As Helen spoke, Russell Crow seemed to take flight from her shoulder and across the shoulder, leading Holly to again duck behind Phillip again.
