Are struggling to dry your washing indoors at the minute? It’s not a new problem, but it is an age-old one, which This Morning expert Alice Beer tried to solve back in 2018 with a nifty heated airer from Lakeland. But unfortunately for her, and hilariously for us, Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby were in mischievous mood as she tried to demo it!
The trouble starts when Phillip tried to work out how the heater is powered. ‘so that’s plugged in,’ he asks, innocently. ‘Yes, can you not feel how hot it is,’ Holly replies, a tad sarcastically.
‘Well I thought it could be solar powered, I don’t know,’ says Philip. To which Holly retorts, ‘There’s no sun – which is the point we’re doing this item! You may as well get a washing line!’

Top tip for drying clothes on an airer
If you continue to watch the video, you’ll pick up a great tip from ‘David in wardrobe’. Rather than pay £34.99 for a cover that will help your clothes dry quicker, he suggests putting your duvet cover over the top of the airer to contain the heat.
What a clever idea!
