Holly teased Cilla's appearance when the veteran presenter joined her and Phillip Schofield on 'This Morning' on Tuesday.

"You came back on 'Surprise Surprise' to surprise two ladies and it hasn't aired yet, but it was so wonderful having you back there," Holly said.

"Because obviously nobody knew you were going to be there, there was this gasp that went up as you walked down the big catwalk, it was like 'welcome home'... it was so lovely."

Cilla added: "Well it was a bit like that for me doing 'Blind Date' again... but we had a lot of fun."
