Holly Willoughby couldn’t stop reading a “lovely message” Phillip Schofield sent her when she was in Australia.
The This Morning co-hosts were happy to be finally reunited at the Dancing on Ice launch on Tuesday (18.12.19) at London’s Natural History Museum, after she returned home following her I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! presenting stint.
And the 37-year-old star revealed she was nearly moved to tears when her 56-year-old co-host sweetly called her a TV Jedi in a text message he sent while she was Down Under.
She said: “Phil sent me a lovely message, I got lots of lovely messages, but there was one he sent me and I texted him back saying I can’t stop reading it.
“This one was particularly nice, ‘You are like a TV Jedi,’ so it was nice to have you say those nice things, and I said, ‘Please stop being nice, you’re gonna make me cry!’
“We’ve been obviously texting and I called him but this morning when I was like, ‘I can’t wait to see your face!”
Phil added: “It’s been great for me, but man she was so brilliant and I was very proud, she just made me howl with laughter.”
Holly gushed that she is happy to be back in London and embrace the festive season because it “didn’t feel like Christmas” when she was presenting in the sweltering jungle heat.
She said: “It didn’t feel like Christmas time at all when I was over there, no Christmas trees, no lights no mince pies so since I’ve come back it’s just been an explosion of Christmas really.”
Holly is also keen to get stuck into Dancing of Ice – which kicks off in January – because she knows just how popular the show is.
She said: “It was obvious that people love it as much as we did, and then you just forget about that and get on with the show.”
