Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield have been celebrating this week because they have confirmed Holly will be returning to This Morning in September this year!

The 34-year-old presenter will be back on our screens, and on the sofa next to Phillip, after she finishes her maternity leave this summer and Phillip can’t wait! Mum of three Holly left last September when she had her third baby Chester – she also has two other little ones, Harry and Belle with her husband Dan Baldwin.

Phillip tweeted the news this week as he and Holly filmed the new opening titles for the show ahead of her return in the autumn.

He wrote “Not on @itvthismorning today. Spending the day with @hollywills shooting new opening titles, promos and doing i/v’s for her Sept return.”

He also posted several other pics on his Instagram account of the duo having fun, catching up over dinner (and wine!) proving they are still the best of friends!

Gok Wan helped Amanda Holden present the show in Phillip’s absence on Monday while Phillip and Amanda have been presenting This Morning together recently and enjoying the sunshine on London’s Southbank near the ITV studios!
