Concerned fans send support to Holly Willoughby as she misses This Morning again

Rochelle Humes filled in for her

Holly Willoughby has been forced to miss This Morning for the second day in a row due to illness.

The presenter, 38, has been feeling poorly since the beginning of the week and took Wednesday off, leaving her co-star Phillip Schofield co-hosting with Rochelle Humes.

And on Thursday's edition of the daytime show, Phil revealed Holly was too ill to host again so Rochelle, 29, filled in for the mum-of-three.

Opening the show, Phil told viewers: "Hello and welcome to your Thursday's This Morning.

"Holly is still poorly unfortunately but thankfully, we've got Rochelle with us again today."

Many viewers weren't happy that Holly was missing from the show again.

One person said: "Oh great, Holly still ill," while another wrote: "Where the frigg is Holly??? @hollywills."

Holly is still poorly unfortunately but thankfully, we've got Rochelle with us again today.

A third added: "We're really hoping Holly gets better soon, my daughter and I are thinking of her. Get well soon Holly."

Another wrote: "Hope you're feeling better," while another said: "Hope you're feeling better soon and you have someone to look after you."

It comes after Phil revealed on Wednesday that Holly was poorly.

He told viewers on the show: "Some of you might have noticed that I’ve got a different co-host for the day.

"Holly’s poorly today. If you’ve been watching throughout the week you’ll know that she’s been on a sort of downward spiral.

"Started on Dancing On Ice, she wasn’t really brilliant on Sunday, and then it’s got worse and worse.

"And finally, she’s fallen over so she’s staying home today."

He added: "Get well soon. She’s not going to be watching, but get well soon."

Some viewers speculated that Holly was expecting while others suggested she was actually hungover and pulling a sickie.

On Sunday night, Dancing On Ice viewers were a little concerned about her, as she was sounding croaky.
