Holly Willoughby gripped by ‘panic’ as This Morning guest warns Xmas toys could run out

Holly Willoughby has admitted she was panicked after a This Morning guest warned parents that they should begin to buy Christmas presents this month.

Phillip Schofield was also on Thursday’s ITV Daytime Show episode.

The pair were joined via video-link by toy shop The Entertainer’s commercial chief Geoff Sheffield, who warned that “Christmas chaos” will hit Britain this year and make getting the right toys more difficult.

Geoff recommended that parents begin Christmas toy shopping as soon as possible to help combat the shortages.

“I’m a parent of three kids, Christmas in 100 days away.

“Is it good to buy now?

“We are only going to increase panic if we panic-buy toys?
