Holly and Phil’s SHOCK return to This Morning at last – for five minutes!

Oh how we've missed you guys

It’s been a long, hot summer without our favourite ITV presenters, Holly Willoughby and Phil Schofield sitting on This Morning’s sofa.

And fans reacted with shock and delight when the pair made a surprise appearance on Wednesday’s show!

Holly, and Phil – who always take the summer holidays off and are being covered by Ruth Langsford and Eamonn Holmes – had pre-filmed the segment.

It was an interview with nineties band All Saints who have re-formed and later performed songs from their new album.

Viewers reacted with confusion and delight.

Another joked: “Ok thought I was high on no supply this morning but they pre filmed the all saints interview with Holly, Ruth didn’t do a quick outfit change 🤣🤭#ThisMorning”.

A third commented: “Eamonn and Ruth have suddenly morphed into Holly and Phil on @thismorning”.

We’ve been loving Ruth, 58, and Eamonn, also 58, on the sofa.

The married presenters made us laugh on Tuesday’s episode, when the Northern Irish star told the story of the moment he first saw his future wife.

In the segment about love stories, he asked Ruth, 58: “I believe in love at first sight, do you?”

“Well…” she hedged, before adding: “I believe in lust at first sight!”

Cheeky Eamonn continued to camera: “See, I don’t drink, and I’m always the taxi for anyone who knows me. And one night I was calling at a friend’s place, and she had another friend staying with her.

“She sent her friend out and said, ‘Go out and make sure Eamonn Holmes knows where my apartment is.’ So, she sent out this long, leggy blonde…”

He then dangerously added: “Slim… in those days!” Luckily, the long-suffering Ruth burst out laughing at the comment.

And the rest of his anecdote was adorable. Eamonn went on: “There she was, on the street corner, it was Ruth Langsford, and I was just like WOW.”
