Alison Hammond confirms Holly Willoughby This Morning return
This Morning presenter Holly Willoughby came down with the shingles and had to take an extra week away from the ITV staple. While Phillip Schofield made a comeback on Monday, Holly wasn’t able to join her co-star and instead, Rochelle Humes presented alongside the broadcaster.
However, Friday’s presenters Alison Hammond and Dermot O’Leary confirmed the 42-year-old would be back next week.
Holly gave fans an update on her condition recently as she took to Instagram to explain she was “feeling better”.
Sharing a snap of some soup sent to her by Dermot, she penned: “Thank you @dermotoleary for the sweetest delivery of chicken soup and salt beef… just what I needed.
“Feeling so much better. Thank you all for your well wishes.”
As Alison concluded Friday’s show, she told viewers Holly would be returning soon.
“On Monday’s show, Holly is coming back! So don’t worry, she’s going to be here on Monday,” she explained.
“Have a great weekend!” Dermot added as he waved goodbye to the audience.

On Sunday, Holly took to social media to announce she’d been struck with the illness, which she would need time to recover from.
She stated: “Hi… Just to let you know I may be away for the rest of the week as I have shingles… I’ll be back as soon as I’m better. Huge Love, Holly xxx.”
Holly will reunite with Phillip next week after weeks apart, which came from Phillip’s pre-planned leave ahead of Easter, the pair’s Easter break and her illness.
The condition is transferable through direct contact and is usually characterised by a painful rash.
In recent weeks, Alison, Dermot, Rochelle, Joel Dommett, Josie Gibson and Craig Doyle have all stood in to present the show, but things seem set to return to normal as of Monday, with Phillip and Holly at the helm from Mondays to Thursdays before Alison and Dermot front the Friday instalment.
This Morning airs weekdays from 10am on ITV.
