Each day at work is never the same when you are Holly Willoughby, and her morning was made even more exciting on Thursday when she invited some of her friends to join her at the This Morning studios. The TV host brought along her good friend, former All Saints singer Nicole Appleton, as well as pals Shiarra Bell and Niki de Metz – who are all members of Holly's close-knit friendship group. Taking to Instagram, Holly shared a photo of the friends sitting on the iconic blue sofa in the studios, which captured the attention of former Spice Girl Emma Bunton - who is also a part of the inner circle. Emma, not wanting to be left out, told them: "Miss my girls, sorry I missed it today."

Over the past few weeks, Holly has been settling into her "new home" at the Television Studios in White City – where ITV daytime shows including This Morning have temporarily moved to from their studios on the South Bank. Holly gave a glimpse of her new view in a recent Instagram post, which showed her and her co-host Phillip Schofield looking out to rows of flats. "Downgraded to flats," one follower jokingly commented on the studios, which are a far cry from the luxury London property Holly owns.
