But while the programme has secured the ultimate line-up of stand-in presenters, fans are sure to be wondering when they can expect to see the iconic hosting duo back on their screens - and just what viewers think of their replacements.

Holly and Phillip hosted their final show on July 8 before taking their annual holiday. Holly, who shares her three children, Harry, 13, Belle, 11, and Chester, seven, with husband Dan Baldwin is sure to be spending some quality time with her family while her kids enjoy six weeks off school. 

Phillip is also a dad to grown-up daughters, Ruby, 26, and Molly, 29, and is no doubt taking advantage of the lengthy break. But when are they returning to our screens?  

The iconic pairing will be back hosting the daytime show as usual on Monday 5 September.
