Holly Willoughby Surprises Phillip Schofield And Amanda Holden With Surprise 'This Morning' Appearance


Holly Willoughby brightened up our dreary Monday morning when she surprised the cast and crew of ‘This Morning’ with a guest appearance.


Holly is currently on maternity leave after giving birth to her newborn son, Chester, in September, but decided to surprise presenters Phillip Schofield and Amanda Holden by popping in during a cooking segment.

‘This Morning’ chef Gino D’Acampo, who is currently covering Holly’s spot on ‘Celebrity Juice’, was preparing a chicken dish when she walked onto the set and joked: “Oh, I hope you’ve got an extra plate!”

Phillip and Amanda were visibly shocked to see Holly, who was still wearing her coat as she walked onto the ‘This Morning’ kitchen when she made her flying visit.

She said: “I brought the baby in to show you… and I’ve lucked out because you’ve done a family feast!”

Holly admitted that she had been feeling “so nervous” about making her impromptu guest appearance, adding: “Don’t stop because I’m hungry! Oh I’ve timed this right… I’ve literally just got here, I’ve just come up and I thought I’m going on.”

Amanda has been presenting on the ITV daytime show since the new mum went on maternity leave back in September, receiving praise for her presenting skills from most viewers ever since taking the reins.

Christine Bleakley will take over co-hosting duties midway through Holly’s maternity leave, having previously filled in during Phillip’s absence earlier this year.
