Josie Gibson visited a mermaid swimming school in Worcestershire referred to as “Mermaid Cove”.
The television spot was to celebrate the release of Disney’s live-action remake of The Little Mermaid.
She took part in some swimming exercises, fit with her very own mermaid tail, but suffered a minor blunder with her swimming costume and asked one of the instructors for help.
She said: “Can you do my swimming costume up for me? My swimming costume has become undone but I have had a lovely experience becoming the mermaid for the day.”
While signing off to Dermot O’Leary and Alison Hammond back in the This Morning studio, she thanked the instructor through her laughter.
She said: “Thanks, Lisa, that could have been really traumatic for me there.”
An instructor called Lisa explained that her team all have qualifications to teach the mermaid swimming courses and offer experiences and parties for children in Worcestershire.
“There was a qualification that we could do as instructors. It has enabled us to facilitate that experience for them to come down and have parties and become mermaids.
