Holly Willoughby has revealed why she’s been absent from our screens all week.

And prepare to get jealous!

The This Morning host has been away, leaving Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford to hold the fort, with Davina McCall and Ore Oduba filling in on Friday.

And the 37-year-old revealed today she’d been enjoying some stunning scenery in the Alps for half-term.

She posted a breathtaking snap of a winter wonderland complete with snow and mountains alongside the caption: “Good bye Alps… heading home for more Ice… of the dancing variety… ❄ #topoftheworld x.”

Another added: “Safe travel home good luck for the ice don’t giggle to much.”

The mum-of-three will be reunited with presenting partner Phillip Schofield as the two host Dancing on Ice tonight.

Plenty of fans weren’t happy with the duo on the daytime show and took to social media to express their annoyance.

One claimed there was “no spark between them” while another revealed they wanted to press mute whenever the two were on.

But others welcomed the refreshing change of personnel and said they were better than Amanda Holden when she fills in as a guest presenter. Poor Amanda!

Stalwarts Eamonn and Ruth were their usual selves earlier in the week, with the Northern Irishman adding a bit of cheeky charm to proceedings.
