Holly Willoughby fans have been demanding the popular TV host’s return to her This Morning duties following her winter break.
Well, we’ve got our wish, and today she makes her grand return to the This Morning set to reunite with co-star Phillip Schofield.
But where exactly has she been and why has she had an extended Christmas break?
Here’s everything you need to know.
Why hasn’t Holly Willoughby been on This Morning?
At the beginning of Monday’s episode, Phillip stated that Holly was taking a ‘couple of days’ extra on her holiday to spend some more time with her family.
Holly is married to TV producer Dan Baldwin, and together they have three children – Belle, Chester and Harry.
On Tuesday, Phillip stirred the pot by claiming that she was ‘obligated to perform on the Masked Singer as Badger’ which is an interesting conspiracy theory!
Rochelle Humes has been stepping into Holly’s shoes in the meantime, joining Phillip as they update viewers on the latest celebrity news and gossip.
Announcing her return on Wednesday morning, Holly posted a photo of her in today’s hosting outfit – a dress by LK Bennett, and she sent a positive message as the UK faces the new lockdown.
‘Morning! HNY! … Hope your ok and if not …that’s ok too… let’s get through it day by day,’ she wrote.
‘We’ve been here before, we can do it again… missed you and looking forward to keeping you company again… see you on @thismorning at 10am.’
When does Holly Willoughby host This Morning?
Typically, Holly and Phillip host every Monday to Thursday, with Fridays episodes being hosted by Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford.
Starting from this Friday, Alison Hammond and Dermot O’Leary will take over Friday duties.
Holly last appeared on the show on Christmas Day in a pre-recorded episode, and then before that performing in the annual This Morning pantomime.
During the special episode, Holly was transformed into Cinderella, with Phillip as her Dandini and Alison as her Fairy Godmother.
This Morning airs weekdays from 10am on ITV.
