One person said: “I can’t wait to watch when I get home from work, the last one they presented together was hilarious!”

Another wrote: “I always make sure I watch when you are hosting Rylan!” while a third tweeted: “Can’t wait for This Morning to watch Rylan. You always bring a smile to my face.”

Last week, Holly stunned fans when she shared a sweet photo with her 71-year-old mother Linda.

The glamorous mum and daughter duo, who are sporting similar short blonde hairstyles, are both grinning broadly into the camera for the picture that was simply captioned “mumma”.

And thanks to her jaw-dropping youthful appearance, Holly’s followers thought her mum was actually her sister!
