This Morning: Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby under fire for absence

The Dancing On Ice duo are taking more time off

On This Morning today, Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield were replaced once again.

Phillip recently took time off after he was diagnosed with Covid-19. He also had to step back from his Dancing On Ice duties.

Meanwhile, Holly ditched ITV for two weeks while she filmed a documentary series for the BBC.

Both stars returned last week, however, it wasn’t for long.

The beloved duo was once again absent today (February 14) as half-term began for some schools in England.

As a result, numerous viewers rushed to share their opinions.

“Don’t celebs work in half term I thought @Schofe’s girls were all grown up, actresses and actors, politicians are supposed to have au pairs and nannies.”

A second said: “Phil and Holly on HOLLIBOBS again because it’s a half-term perhaps.”

“Are Holly and Phil ever working on #ThisMorning these days,” ranted a third viewer.

A fourth fan tweeted: “As Phil had a week off recently and Holly two weeks off why have they been given half-term off too, lazy buggers!”

“Phil & Holly not working again, seriously?!” said another angry viewer.

However, not everyone felt the same and some defended the pair.
