Keith Lemon and Holly Willoughby have long been friends, and together with celebrity chef Gino D'Acampo, the trio go way back. So fans were delighted – and Holly not so much – when Keith took to Instagram this week to share a throwback photo of the three on holiday together. In the image, the pair were posing in the swimming pool, and the TV star had chosen to caption it: "That time I taught Gino and Holly to swim." Holly took to the comments section shortly afterwards, simply posting an emoji of a monkey covering its eyes.

Holly gets on well with her extended ITV family, and is often photographed with them outside of work. Earlier in the year, the mum-of-three enjoyed a holiday with This Morning co-host Phillip Schofield in the Algarve, Portugal. Phillip shared a series of funny Snapchat posts from a night out during their time away, seeing the pair joined by their spouses, Dragon's Den star Peter Jones and The Chase's Bradley Walsh as they had dinner in a restaurant. Phil was seen passing around a tray of shots, with his wife Stephanie saying she was "on it". "That's just for me, that's great, that's sensational," joked Bradley. Phil shared another picture of him and Holly toasting to their holidays. "Reunited," he wrote on Snapchat.

This isn't the first time Holly and Phil have chosen to spend their summers together. Last year, they again holidayed in Portugal. There is no doubt that the pair are close – and have viewers in hysterics with their regular fits of giggles live on air - and Holly has previously opened up about their ideal working relationship and off-air friendship. She told the Daily Star: "Phil is a brilliant friend and, more importantly, when it comes to parenting advice, he has been there, seen it and done it with his daughters, so he’s a constant and invaluable source of advice when it comes to bringing up my children."
