    This Morning viewers have been delighted to have their ITV favourites Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield reunited after taking a short break.

    Holly has been absent after a break due to battling shingles, but appeared the picture of health as she smiled and glowed alongside her co-star.

    The star had originally been set to return last week but was forced to stay away from the ITV studios after contracting the virus, which she said left her feeling "wobbly".

    Addressing viewers at the start of today's (Monday April 24) show, she said: "It is nice to be back. Good to see you… I had a wobbly week and a half as anyone who has had it would know."

    Co-star and best pal Phillip Schofield asked her how she was feeling now, to which the blonde presenter replied: "All mended in fact."

    Holly confirmed she would be returning to the ITV daytime show after she revealed she was "doing much better" on her Instagram.

    It wasn't just her co-star who was delighted to have her back as ITV viewers were thrilled to see the duo back together again.

    One fan wrote on Twitter: "Love seeing phil and holly back together."

    Another added: "Yay! @hollywills is back. Welcome back Holly, good to see you are feeling better."

    "Yay… Phil and Holly are back," wrote a third.

    "Holly is back!" added another.

    However some fans cast doubt over Holly's illness, as one questioned: "How is Holly back if she only had shingles a week ago."

    Another wrote: "If Holly said that she was suffering from diarrhoea and vomiting, it would have been a lot more plausible as that clears up after 5-7 days, as opposed to shingles, which clears up after 2-4 weeks."

    A third added: "Holly's shingles appears to have cleared-up suspiciously quickly."

    Holly had been due to return after the Easter holidays but due to falling ill was forced to stay away from ITV for longer. She told fans at the time: "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."
