Holly Willoughby: Ten years with Phillip Schofield on This Morning have been ‘pure joy’

HOLLY WILLOUGHBY has said it has been ’10 years of pure joy and laughter’ to present This Morning alongside Phillip Schofield.

Today, the pair celebrate a decade of fronting the ITV daytime show.

Willoughby (above) shared on Instagram an old photo of them together, writing alongside it: ‘Happy @thismorning anniversary @schofe … 10 years of pure joy and laughter… so lucky to share a sofa with you’, followed by a double heart emoji.

Schofield, 57, said earlier: ‘For me in Holly, it’s someone I trust entirely and completely and someone who trusts me, not just on the telly but, you know, with our lives.

‘I don’t think there’s anything that we don’t know about each other, we know each other’s strengths and each other’s weaknesses.

‘If one is feeling down, the other one will be there to prop them up and make sure they’re OK. She’s like the sister I never had.’

Holly recalled her first day on the job in 2009, saying she had been ‘so, so nervous, and holding on to Phil for dear life’.

Off-screen the pair have become good friends and regularly post snaps of themselves on holiday together.

Stand-out moments during their time fronting This Morning include them turning up at work in the same outfits they wore the night before to the National Television Awards in 2016.

The partners in crime admitted they had attended a raucous after-party hosted by Ant and Dec.

This Morning airs on ITV from 10.30am.
