Ahead of the show, Holly admitted she missed the show as she shared her outfit with fans and posed for her usual Instagram snap.

She shared a supportive message to her 7million followers in the caption as she wrote: “Morning! HNY! … Hope your ok and if not …that’s ok too… let’s get through it day by day…

“we’ve been here before, we can do it again… missed you and looking forward to keeping you company again… see you on @thismorning at 10am…”

It comes after Phillip revealed Holly was dealing with childcare issues as she was covered by former The Saturdays singer Rochelle Humes on the ITV daytime show.

Speaking to viewers on Tuesday 5 January, Phillip teased that Holly was intact taking part in The Masked Singer.

He joked: “Holly's not around today, she's just about to wrap up her filming commitments with The Masked Singer.

“She will be back with us tomorrow. The Badger, who would have thought it? Unbelievable but I guessed it from the off.”

Holly’s TV bestie Phillip, who recently branded Holly’s singing voice as “s**t”, later revealed that the blonde mum-of-three is having “childcare issues”.

Phillip explained: “We'll also say good morning to Holly who is watching at home, as Badger.

“She's dealing with her childcare issues at the moment and she will be back tomorrow.”

Holly is mum to son Harry, 11, daughter Belle, nine, and Chester, six, who she shares with husband Dan Baldwin.

The This Morning star’s absence comes after Boris Johnson announced some schools would not be returning until 18 January.
