Holly and Phil are hoping to add an eleventh NTA to their trophy cabinet

Meanwhile, This Morning is up for another National Television Award, and Holly and Phillip admitted it would be extra special to win the coveted Best Daytime award this year, which they have won for ten consecutive years.

Phillip said: "With the NTAs, it’s always a big one because it’s a public vote so that’s an important one… I think this year more than ever, it really would mean a lot to the team."

Holly added: "I think this year actually, it'd mean even more like Phillip said, because it has been the most extraordinary year and everyone involved in the show worked twice as hard to ensure we could stay on air."
