Rylan Clark-Neal fortunately took on presenting duties alongside Phil and viewers seemed pretty chuffed.

Speaking to This Morning viewers Phil, 55, said: “Holly’s not very well today so I’ve been given the most unlikely partner. I can’t wait for this.”

Rylan, 28, was revealed to be Phil’s buddy for the day he said: “I was in bed an hour and 20 minutes ago.

“I don’t know what’s going on.”

The Celebrity Big Brother’s Bit On The Side presenter added: “This really is an unlikely pairing. A presenter and an X Factor reject.”

Phil joked: “I got a text saying Rylan is coming in, and I said I’d present it on my own.”

Revealing the extent of Holly’s illness Phil said: “She texted me this morning and you know the cat she’s got that’s peeing on the sofas and everywhere.

“She said, ‘I’ve got up and I’ve just been sick on the cat.'”

A third said: “Phil and Rylan is the best pairing ever… got me in stitches already #ThisMorning.”

Could this be a possible new favourite presenting duo!?
