Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield celebrate 11 years on This Morning together as fans go wild for throwback snaps

THIS Morning hosts Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield today toasted 11 years hosting the show together.

The daytime favourites celebrated by sharing their first ever moments on screen, with Holly saying she was “terrified”.

Phillip told This Morning viewers: “Today isn’t just any Monday, today marks 11 years since Holly presented this show for the first time.”

While his co-host squirmed, he added: “We thought we’d take a look back on Monday 14 September 2009.”

The show then played a tape showing Holly 11 years ago in the show’s old studio, clinging to Phillip’s arm.

The star was just 28 when she took over from long-running co-host Fern Britton, alongside Phil.

She said: “Come back. I’m holding on very tightly. I feel like this isn’t really happening.”

Back in the studio, Holly admitted: “It was one of the most terrifying moments of my entire life. It really was.

“You love this show. I watched it as a viewer for years and years and years before I even stepped foot in the studio. You don’t want to mess it up.”

Phillip replied kindly: “You never did” but she replied: “Well, sometimes I do.”

He reassured her: “We all do that” to which she answered: “Quite regularly.”

Fans were thrilled to see the old clips, with one writing: “What a fantastic team you make…congratulations on 11 years, here’s to 11 more 🥰.”

Another wrote: “11 years yikes where did that go and thank you for brightening up my mornings for the last 11 years and long may it last Holly 😘.”
