This Morning: Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield reunite on daytime show

ITV This Morning viewers were delighted when Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield reunited to host the show on Wednesday February 9.

It comes after Phil, 59, was forced into self-isolation for a week after testing positive for Covid-19.

However, the couple have not presented the daytime series together since Thursday January 13 after Holly took a break from filming a new BBC series, Wim Hof’s Superstar Survival.

Holly was absent from the show for the first time on Monday, January 17 with Phil telling viewers that Rochelle Humes would be co-host while Holly took over two weeks off.

Holly then returned on Thursday February 3 alongside Josie Gibson after Phil revealed he tested positive for coronavirus on Monday January 31.

But after his period of self-isolation and two negative lateral flow tests, Phil is now back on screens.

“Hello and welcome to your Wednesday morning, look who’s back!” Holly told viewers on today’s show.

“I’ve missed you,” Holly said, before Phil replied, “I’ve missed you too, I’ve missed it, I’ve missed the TV, I cleaned out all the kitchen cupboards, I abused things that I didn’t have time to look at.”

Phil’s return to television comes after being replaced by Stephen Mulhern on Dancing On Ice on Saturday night. You can find out more here.

Holly and Alison Hammond teased Phil’s return on Tuesday’s episode.

Holly said: “We have good news because, it’s been lovely with Alison, but Phil yesterday afternoon had a negative Covid test, and today he’s negative again, so he’s released and free in the world.”

Alison added: “I’m so happy for him.”

This Morning continues weekdays at 10am on ITV.
