Holly and Phil’s message

Holly said: “We don’t usually run credits at the end of our show as we like to hand straight over to the Loose Women.

“But we will be running them in order to thank our incredible production team for keeping us on air for the past 15 weeks.”

Phil continued: “We often talk about our This Morning family on screen but that family genuinely extends behind the scenes.

“We’ve all kept each other going through these very tough times.

“So we wanted to say thank you to the producers, the researchers, the director, the editor and all the amazing crew here on the studio floor.

“And also the many more that have been working from home.”

Phil told Holly: “Hopefully, when we come back in September, I can give you a bloody hug.”

Holly replied: “I hope so. That would be really nice, I really look forward to it.”
