Alongside the cute photograph, 37-year-old Holly joked that her return to the ITV show with her good friend will be like going back to school.

She wrote: “Back to school on Monday!!!! Can’t wait to be reunited with the silver fox on the sofa…

“See you and @schofe on @thismorning Monday!”

Phillip, 56, added on his page: “We’re back on Monday!! 😊😊 @thismorning #reunited.”

Throughout the summer, a host of faces have stood in for Holly and Phil.


For the majority of the shows, Ruth Langsford and Eamonn Holmes have presented This Morning in their absence.

Other guest presenters have included Mollie King and Matt Edmondson.

But while they have all gone down well, viewers are excited for the This Morning stalwarts to return to their screens.

Following Holly and Phil’s announcements, once commented: “Love Phillip and Holly cant wait to see them back every morning xxx.”

Another added: “Missed you guys!”

A third even joked: “Horrendously unfair for us teachers that you never present in the holidays!”

Meanwhile, earlier this week, Holly also confirmed that she will be flying to Australia later this year to co-host I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! with Declan Donnelly.

Following much speculation, Holly revealed that she will be standing in for Ant McPartlin following his decision to break from TV commitments for a year.

The Geordie’s decision to step back from the spotlight comes after his drink-driving arrest earlier this year.

In a statement announcing her new job, Holly said: “I couldn’t be more excited to have been asked to stand alongside Dec for the next jungle adventure.

“I love Ant and want to send him my best wishes and support for a continued recovery.

“These are big shoes, not to fill, but just to keep warm for a little bit…

“She was at the top of my list and I’m thrilled she said yes.”
