A mum who became an internet sensation after a video of her falling over on Sports Day went viral has explained why she shared the hilarious clip.

Katie Hannaford fell over during the parents’ race at her daughter’s Sports Day, ending up with her dress over her head and her story all over the internet.

Speaking to Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby to explain the reason why she shared the video, Katie told ITV’s This Morning: “Everyone deserves a laugh. It’s funny, you can’t help but laugh at it – we just need to laugh.”

Katie went on to explain her youngest daughter asked her to take part in Sports Day and she felt she had to do it because she’d done it for her other child.

Katie said: “First of all I thought, ‘My god, that was 10 years ago. I was a lot younger, a lot fitter then.’

“And I thought, ‘I can’t do it for one and not the other, so I’ll have to say yes.’ But as soon as I said yes, I thought, ‘What on earth are you doing?’”

Describing the moment she fell, Katie said, “It went in slo mo, so I felt it happen but didn’t feel the dress go over my head. It was only afterwards I thought, ‘Oh my God’ and pulled it down, obviously.'”

She went on to say her daughter had her head in her hands and said, “Mum, only you could have done that!”

On other mums being competitive at the start line, Katie said, “There were mums in gym kits and I thought, ‘I know I’ll come last’, but I thought I’d at least finish it!’”

Admitting she’s a clumsy person in everyday life, Katie said, “All the time. That’s another reason why I shared it with friends and family because they said, ‘There’s no surprise there, that reminds me of the time you were a kid.’”
