Josie Gibson has been co-presenting the show alongside Phillip Schofield this week

In Holly's absence, Phillip, 59, explained on Tuesday how Josie was on her way to Surrey for another part of the show. However, she was swiftly diverted back to the London studio to take on the hosting gig.

"An hour ago you were on your way to do our live shows in Surrey," he said as he turned towards Josie, who replied: "Yep, one minute of TV, over. Then I had a phone call."

Addressing Holly's absence, Phil added: "Holly is not here today because she's got a tummy bug - nothing more than that."

Josie replied: "I couldn't believe it. I thought they'd got the wrong number, Phil. Honestly, I said 'You've phoned Josie', but how surreal. I've grown up watching the show and now I'm sat alongside you... I've been thrown in at the deep end but I've got the best armbands on the planet."
