Phillip Schofield mocks the extended This Morning break by saying, “I’m not sure we remember!”
PHILLIP SCHOFIELD made a joke about his and co-host Holly Willoughby’s return to ITV’s This Morning after a long hiatus over the holidays.
Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby, the hosts of This Morning, returned to the ITV daytime show on Monday morning after a long break over the Christmas holidays.
Alison Hammond and Dermot O’Leary stepped in as stand-ins for the pair while they were away.
Phillip joked that neither he nor Holly could remember how to do their presenting job when they returned from the holidays.
“Hello, good morning, and welcome to your Monday’s This Morning, we are back!” Holly exclaimed after the theme song ended.
“How lovely to see you,” Phillip said to his co-star before turning to the camera and greeting the audience.
“Oh, we missed you,” Holly continued, “hope you’re fine, hope you’ve had a wonderful Christmas, and all that sort of thing!”
“Anyway, it’s very nice to see you,” Phillip continued. “Here we go, a brand new year for us, and as you can see, they were all back last week doing an amazing job.”
“But we’re back, and we did say before that we weren’t 100% sure we could remember how to do it, but here we go!”
“I’ve only just put the lid on the Quality Street guys,” Holly continued, “you know the ones you really don’t want who are just there, the lid is firmly on and here we are for a brand new year!”
Many fans were overjoyed to see Holly and Phillip back on screen, and many took to Twitter to express their delight.
