Although they’re taking some time off, Holly and Phil will be returning on Christmas Day for a special festive episode.

Meanwhile, Holly has hit out at rumours that she plans on ditching her job on This Morning.

During her upcoming appearance on The Jonathan Ross Show, she says: “I never think like that. I feel very lucky to be on that show.

“The show changes so much, I think that’s the beauty of This Morning.

She adds: “Recently it’s had the highest ratings it’s had in 15 years. It’s doing really, really well which is extraordinary for a show that’s been around for as long as it has.”
