Phillip and Holly return to This Morning
ITV’s flagship daytime show will return for a new series with Phillip and Holly hosting from 1st September
To mark the reunion following Holly’s maternity leave from the award-winning daytime show, Phillip is seen looking thoughtful as he enters a coffee shop and notices images of well known partnerships including Richard and Judy, Ant and Dec, Morcambe and Wise, and even a Batman and Robin before he is seen back together with his much missed co-host!
This Morning’s website filmed a behind-the-scenes feature during the making of the promo where the duo express their excitement for the new series. Phillip said, “It’s lovely working with Holly because our humour works at the same speed and it’s always nice to work with a mate.”
Phillip added, “It’s an all-new look, Holly’s back, and we’ve got some brilliant ideas - things that we’ve not done before - and that’s quite hard to do for a show that’s been running for such a long time... we are really looking forward to September.”
On returning to the show following the birth of her third child, Holly said, “It’s lovely coming back, and it's strange because although I’ve had another baby, and things are so different at home, you come back to This Morning and it's like going back to see your old school friends… it feels like coming home.”
Holly added, “Working with Phil is wonderful, I count myself incredibly lucky. I’m so looking forward to getting back and sitting on that sofa, and being back with Phil.”
This Morning’s editor, Martin Frizell said, “September is a really exciting time for This Morning. Not only will we have Phillip and Holly back together, but there’ll be plenty of fantastic content and big surprises in store that viewers will not want to miss.”
The new series of This Morning starts on 1st September 10.30am on ITV.
