This Morning: Josie Gibson hosts with Holly Willoughby as fans thrilled

The perfect duo?

This Morning viewers were thrilled as Josie Gibson and Holly Willoughby teamed up to host the show today.

Josie and Holly have never presented the daytime show together.

But as Phillip Schofield recently tested positive for Covid-19, Josie was called in to replace him on Thursday.

And it’s safe to say, viewers were loving the decision!

Opening the programme, Holly spoke about her time off in which she was filming for a new BBC show, Wim Hof’s Superstar Survival.

“I’ve been in Italy. I was in Northern Italy, up in the Alps doing a new TV show which is coming out later on this year.

“It was with Wim Hof. We were just doing all sorts of crazy stuff. It was freezing. I had heat pads in places I didn’t know existed.”

When asked whether she did any of the challenges, Holly admitted: “Uh, no. Well, there was a couple of little moments.
