During today’s appearance, Miriam made a shock confession about Hollywood legend Leonardo Di Caprio too – branding him “stinky”.
Miriam and Leo worked together on Romeo + Juliet back in 1996.
Miriam played The Nurse in the movie, whilst Leo played the titular Romeo.

Speaking about Leo, Holly said to Miriam: “You thought he was wonderful, you went shopping together. I mean, he looked gorgeous back then, but he didn’t necessarily smell so great…”
“He was a bit smelly,” Miriam agreed.
“Because it was very hot in Mexico,” she continued. “And I think young boys – he was very young at the time – they don’t make themselves fragrant.”
“They don’t wash all the bits,” she said.
She then went on to say that she has also told one of the This Morning backstage staff – Dylan – he needs to wash “every bit”.
“Strangely enough, Dylan’s just handed his notice in,” Phillip joked as Holly fell about laughing.
