We're being really childish here, forgive us. But if this doesn't make you smile or giggle a little bit - just a tiny laugh, you either don't understand it, which is probably a good thing, or you're just plain boring.

Because it seems that children's favourite piglet has turned rather sinister and it's completely accidental - which kind of makes it better.

In an interview on This Morning, the 16-year-old voice actor who has been playing Peppa Pig for the last 11 years said on national TV that she was 'just kind of snorting, doing some lines'. Oh, we're bad human beings.

Viewers of This Morning are seemingly just as bad as we are because the interview left fans hysterical.

Harley Bird joined Philip Schofield and Holly Willoughby on the ITV daytime show to discuss the phenomenon of the cartoon pig, as reported by the MailOnline.

The teen, who voices Peppa, discussed her recent visit to Peppa Pig World admitting that was the only time she has been recognised while out and about - thanks to her iconic voice, giggle and giveaway snort.

Speaking on the show she said: "I went with my brother and my mum the other weekend and I mean I was on the dinosaur ride which is my favourite ride at the moment but I was on the rides with my brother and everyone was giving me slightly odd looks 'why is there a 16-year-old riding a dinosaur?'.

"Just going round the park me and my brother were just kind of snorting, doing some lines."


And while her slip of the tongue had been completely innocent, tickled viewers took to Twitter to point out her unfortunate choice in words.

One wrote: "Not a very good role model for our kids... Apparently she was going around Peppa Pig World 'snorting and doing some lines'."

Another cheeky viewer added: "Peppa Pig just admitted she enjoys a sesh."

A third said: "I turned @thismorning on to find out peppa pig is a junkie".

While Harley admits that her voice has 'matured' she had Holly and Phil in stitches as she performed her world famous giggle and snort live on the show. Snorting on daytime television, what ever next?

The youngster, who is now studying for her GCSEs, first auditioned for the role of Peppa when she was five years old and was too young to even read the script with producers having to get her to 'repeat her lines'.

She has been a voice actress on the popular children's cartoon for 11 years and says she now knows the character inside out.

So much so she can reveal all Peppa's dirty habits.
