He spoke about how everyone had been “very kind” and “very smiley” during the march.

Holly, on the other hand, didn’t attend the Pride March with the rest of the ITV crew.

However, her weekend was just as loud, it seems.

The star then went on to speak about what she’d been getting up to over the weekend.

“I was down at my parents’ house because it was my dad’s 70th birthday party this weekend,” she said.

“Which is why I sound a little hoarse,” she continued.

“Because of the dancing and shouting and singing.”

“Did you have a good time?” Phillip asked her.

“I had a brilliant time,” she replied. “More importantly, he [her dad] had a brilliant time.”

Elsewhere on today’s show, Holly and Phillip were joined by Miriam Margolyes.

Miriam claimed that acting royalty Leonardo Di Caprio was “a bit smelly” when they worked together on Romeo + Juliet.

“He was a bit smelly,” she said. “Because it was very hot in Mexico, and I think young boys – he was very young at the time – they don’t make themselves fragrant.”

“They don’t wash all the bits,” she said as Holly and Phillip laughed.

Ohhhh I adore @MMargolyes sooo much! There’s no one else quite like her – she’s hilarious,” viewers tweeted after her interview was done.
