Holly Willoughby marks emotional anniversary in gorgeous floral dress


Holly Willoughby looked amazing on Monday's edition of This Morning in a floral dress.

Holly, who is known for her amazing sense of style, was celebrating 11 years presenting the show and wore a stunning dress from Anthropologie for the special occasion.

Sharing her outfit on Instagram, she wrote: "Morning Monday... how are you? [Sun] is shining today… See you at 10am on @thismorning @itv. Dress by @anthropologieeu."

You can nab the pretty dress for £140 on Anthropologie's website (opens in new tab) - and it's still in stock.

And it was in fact Holly's followers who pointed out that, as well as looking lovely, it was her 11th anniversary on This Morning.

One fan commented, "You look gorgeous!! And happy 11 years on this morning!!!"

Another said, "It’s been 11 years today since you started this morning!"

While a third added, "Beautiful dress! Love to watch you and Phillip."

What did Holly Willoughby say about the anniversary?

Holly later celebrated the milestone anniversary on Instagram, sharing an old photo of her clinging onto co-host and close friend Phil's arm.

She captioned the shot, "11 years ago today... and I've never let go! @thismorning @schofe thank you for having me."

Fans loved the throwback, with one commenting, "Awww this is so cute! Happy 11 years what are your best bits mine are every time you guys laughed!"

Another added, "You are the perfect tv couple. You both cheer me up every morning that you are on. Here's to the next 11 years."

Holly and Phil have been presenting the show Monday to Thursday throughout the pandemic, but unlike the picture, the pair were unable to touch due to social distancing rules.

But when they returned after their annual summer break, the show had made a clever plastic 'cuddle curtain' so that they could hug for the first time in six months.

The contraption meant Holly and Phil could slot their arms through and embrace without actually touching each other.

Clearly finding the hug overwhelming, Phil said, "I don't want to let go."
