LYNDA La Plante left viewers in hysterics today with her excitable interview on This Morning.
The crime author delighted fans, as well as hosts Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield, as she put on funny voices and blew raspberries, while acting out her trip to a Russian morgue on the ITV show.
Lynda, 75, was promoting her new thriller Murder Mile – the fourth book to follow policewoman Jane Tennison, made famous in Prime Suspect.
However, viewers were immediately taken by Lynda’s enthusiasm, which saw her playfully brag about her other hit novels and talk about her characters in their own funny voices.
With the hosts unable to contain their laughter, Phil asked: “Do you write the books in these voices too?”, causing Lynda to giggle herself.
Not stopping there, the screenwriter later acted out her past research trip to a Russian morgue on the sofa.
She collapsed onto Holly while recalling her interpreter fainting, before mimicking her Russian guide who was joking about the bodies, by pretending to slit her throat and blowing a raspberry.
Viewers were left in stitches by the scene, and were quick to brand her both “hilarious” and “bonkers” on Twitter.
One wrote: “Loving Lynda la plante on #thismorning she’s crackers! the voice impressions” alongside a string of laughing emojis.
While others agreed: “Don’t you just love Lynda La Plante on @thismorning imagining the scene in the Russian morgue!”
And: “Lynda la Plante on @thismorning mad as a box of frogs lol! Love her!”
Other viewers were left baffled by the scene, writing: “What’s going on” and “Omg this is insane”
As well as: “What the actual hell am I watching?? Lynda la plante is lit”
Further fans could not stop laughing at Holly and Phil’s reaction, adding: “Phil’s trying not to p**s himself…”
And: “Is it just me or is this woman bonkers #lyndaleplant Pmsl at phil and holly trying to keep it on track!”

Lynda ended the interview by revealing her love for Freddie Flintoff, who she has even screen tested for an upcoming drama.
She said the cricketer, who has recently turned his hand to acting, has a “charm” to him that matches that of her character Detective Spencer Gibbs.
Clearly surprised, Phillip then poked fun at her choice by adding: “Well, Freddie is an international actor…”
