Viewers baffled by Holly and Phil’s absence

One tweeted: “I thought the exact same! You would’ve thought Eamonn [Holmes] and Ruth [Langsford] would’ve been on for the full two weeks if Holly and Phil are off for that long

“Fully expected them back today, knowing that Eamonn and Ruth were only on for the one week.”

I thought the exact same so I’m well confused.

Meanwhile, another complained over Holly and Phil’s long break.

One said: “Christ how long is the Easter half-term? Didn’t all the kids go back today… how long do Holly and Phil need off?”
