However, she hasn’t disappeared from ITV completely.  The TV presenter is still appearing on Dancing On Ice every weekend alongside Phillip Schofield.

When is Holly back on This Morning?

Holly will be back on This Morning on January 31 after two weeks off.

Sadly, in a fresh blow for fans of the TV presenter, it seems Holly might not be back for long.

As usual, both Holly and Phil are expected to take a week off in February to coincide with the school half-term holidays.

What is Holly’s new show about?

The This Morning presenter is joining Lee Mack and extreme athlete Wim “The Iceman” Hof to host a new show called Superstar Survival.

The series will follow a group of celebrities as they embark on an “epic adventure of self-improvement, and face a unique test of mental strength like no other”.

They will be forced to tackle wild and death-defying challenges in Europe’s harshest conditions.

“I can’t wait to team up with Lee and Wim on this show,” said Holly.

“Lee is a favourite in our house because he’s so hilariously funny and I’ve been a fan of Wim for a long time – he’s a genius who’s incredibly passionate about helping others.

“This show is going to be brilliantly entertaining and you never know…you may find out some things that could help you along the way too.”

The show will consist of six one-hour episodes, as well as a spin-off BBC Three series.

Wim Hof will be known to some viewers from Gwyneth Paltrow’s Netflix series about her brand, The Goop Lab.

The expert has amassed a large following for his Wim Hof Method, which is a form of controlled breathing and cold water therapy.

He says it can make the human body more resilient in the face of physical and psychological stress.

This Morning is on ITV weekdays at 10am. Dancing On Ice airs Sunday nights on ITV.
