Holly Willoughby horrifies fans with injured Elf on the Shelf: Where are his feet?

Holly Willoughby has left fans in horror after putting her Elf on the Shelf up to mark the countdown to Christmas.

The 40 year old, whose stylist recently shared her top tips for the perfect tailoring look, took to her Instagram feed to post the snap for her 7.4 million followers to see.

Captioned "Guess who’s back… #elfontheshelf," the figure was placed between a yellow teddy bear and a potted plant on a book shelf and while it appeared completely normal eagle-eyed people noticed the Elf had no feet.

Fans immediately flocked to the comment section to point out the mysterious disappearance of his feet and question Holly over it.

"Where are his feet?" one said with a crying with laughter emoji and a see no evil monkey emoji.

Another wrote: "His lack of feet is really unsettling me," alongside three crying with laughter emojis.

A third joked: "He's not gonna get up to many shenanigans with no feet!!" with a quiet emoji, while a fourth added: "Oh no poor elf had his feet amputated," followed by a crying emoji.

It comes after viewers recently slammed the Christmas decor on ITV's This Morning as "excessive".

Monday's instalment of the show saw Holly, who wore a stunning sparkling skirt, expertly use her high heel to rip down a piece of paper that gave way to the lavish festive decorations in the studio.

"Oh, look at this!" her co-host Phillip Schofield, 59, said before a stunned Holly looked around and asked: "Oh my gosh, how many trees?"

Phil looked at a piece of paper in his hand as he informed Holly: "There are twenty-two Christmas trees! More than we've ever had before."

The pair then walked over to a life-sized Christmas polar bear that was mechanically operated to move.

Phil later revealed: "We've actually got over 500 pine cones from our own forest in here.

Holly noted the 150 vintage Christmas books up for display as well as the fire mantlepiece that homed their BAFTA and NTA Awards.

Despite the festive fun on the morning talk show, some viewers were not a fan of the "overkill" of decorations, as they pointed out that many families couldn't even afford one tree during the holiday.

"Are we gonna have this Christmas overkill ALL day and it's just too much self-indulgence ThisMorning," one person tweeted, while others voices similar opinions.

Another wrote: "22 Christmas Trees is over the top. I hope 21 are going to be donated to hospitals, children's or old people's homes across the country. #ThisMorning."

A third added: "Gratuitous overkill with the Christmas decorations, sorry it's just not necessary @ITV #ThisMorning."
