Pregnant Jenni Falconer performs 'very rare reverse plank' getting in on craze with co-host Phillip Schofield

The reverse plank: Pregnant This Morning presenter Jenni Falconer shows off her own special 'reverse plank'

It is the latest internet craze that the likes of F-Word chef Gordan Ramsay and American singer Chris Brown have been seen doing.

‘Planking’, or lying face down in front of an unusual backdrop, is not an activity fit for a pregnant woman, or so it would seem.

But This Morning’s Jenni Falconer didn’t let her bulging baby bump stop her from getting in on the game.

The 35-year-old mum-to-be showed off her very own version of the prank the ‘very rare pregnant reverse plank’ which saw her lying down on the back of a sofa.

Her co-presenter Phillip Schofield tweeted a picture of the pregnant planker after posting a snap of himself performing the regular pose.

The 49-year-old tweeted: ‘'It was only a matter of time before planking founds it's way into the the This Morning studio!

It was only a matter of time: Phillip Schofield also got in on planking craze and posted a picture of himself doing 'the salmon plank'

Adding: 'My leaping Salmon plank.'

Jenni, who showcased her bump in an Isabella Oliver ruched T-shirt dress, is expecting her first child with husband James Midgley in September.

For the uninitiated, planking sees people lying stretched out flat in the most unlikely of public places, then sharing their poses on social media sites like Twitter, Flickr and Facebook.

Aficionados - generally youngsters - are required to lie expressionless with a straight body, hands by their sides with toes pointing into the ground.

The phenomenon caused alarm in May when an Australian practitioner was killed trying it on a balcony in Brisbane, but falling to his death instead.
