Holly Willoughby has been isolating for the past two weeks since she returned from her family holiday in Portugal – and she made it clear just how eager she is to return to work on This Morning.

The 39-year-old has one major reason to be excited to see her summer holidays come to an end though – her BFF Phillip Schofield. Holly revealed that she is raring to return to her day job so she can finally be reunited with her 'silver fox' Phillip.

Needless to say, Holly's fans were also eager to see the TV duo back on their TV screens. "Can’t wait to see you on the telly again!!! Mornings are boring now," one fan wrote.

Another penned: "Morning Holly, yes at last, missed you brightening up my mornings. It's been a long 7 weeks without you beautiful." A third added: "Can't wait! Missed you guys."

Holly has been keeping busy though since she returned from her luxury holiday. On Thursday, she revealed her fun new lockdown project, which we're sure her children Harry, 11, Belle, nine, and five-year-old Chester were happy to lend a helping hand in.

The 39-year-old shared a snapshot showing bundles of tie-dyed items, complete with string to hold them together. She joked: "Quarantine cliché… tie dye incoming!"

Her designs got the approval of her stylist, Angie Smith, who commented: "Whoop whoop!" while friend Fearne Cotton added: "The best!!!"

The TV star was forced to cut her family holiday short so she could quarantine for two weeks before she returns to This Morning alongside Phillip on 1 September. Holly and her family stayed at Quinta do Lago, a luxury resort in the Algarve.
