A This Morning guest has revealed how her unlikely pets – in the form of eight chickens – saved her life when she was suicidal.
Unfortunately, as she told her emotional story the chickens' loud clucking drowned out some of Holly's questions.
The presenters couldn't resist laughing at the chaotic segment, and he said he was finding it difficult to 'concentrate' on the interview.
Julia explained that chickens have up to 60 vocalisations and communicate with each other, which is why they were making so much noise on the show.
At one point the chickens all began to cluck in unison very loudly, interrupting Holly's questions.
She said: 'What happened? What did somebody say?'
Julia revealed that the chickens wake her up early every morning, except in the winter when the mornings are darker.

The hosts held two of the chickens on their laps, but had to use a towel because chickens go to the toilet up to 50 times a day.
