Holly Willoughby returns to This Morning on 1 September after cutting seven-week Portugal holiday short

HOLLY Willoughby will return to This Morning on 1 September after jetting home early from her Portugal holiday to self-isolate.

The 39-year-old star and her co-host Phillip Schofield will be back in the studio following the August bank holiday, the Mirror reports.

Holly planned to fly back from the Algarve at the end of August, but had to cut short the seven-week break due to rules designed to restrict the spread of coronavirus.

The UK government says that anybody holidaying in Portugal must quarantine back in Britain for two weeks.

She came back early from the country, where she was staying at the luxurious Quinta Do Lago resort, to complete her self-isolation before going back into the studio.

The pair’s return means ITV’s first-choice line-up being back on screens – with Piers Morgan returning on the same day.

An insider explained: “Holly accepts that she has to go into quarantine and will follow the rules.

“The summer break is her chance to re-charge after a hectic period and to spend time with her family.

“After all the stresses of the pandemic she had been looking forward to relaxing as long as possible.”

Meanwhile, Piers managed to miss the quarantine period after catching a flight back from St Tropez with his sons shortly before France was struck off the ‘safe’ list.

The 55-year-old star denied he had any inside info on the announcement, saying: “I follow the news, saw France cases rocketing… and did the maths.”

Last night he posted a picture of him sinking a beer in his local pub in London’s Kensington.

He wrote: “First pint in 5 months. Great to be back. 🍺 👍.”
