Can you believe it’s already been 10 years since Holly Willoughby joined Phillip Schofield on the This Morning sofa?
Naturally, celebrations were in order, and Holly was given a cake and some bubbles in order to enjoy the big milestone.
But that wasn’t all, because presenting duo Ant and Dec gatecrashed the celebrations and took over hosting duties, leaving both Holly and Phillip shocked. Neither of them had any idea!
“Stop the television!” the pair yelled, as they marched into a fashion feature that Phillip and Holly were presenting outside.
Holly was noticeably shocked by this, joking that they were “meant to be on Britain’s Got Talent”.
Dec then kicked off the speech, saying: “I don’t know if you realise that it was 10 years ago, 2009, that a fresh faced Holly Willoughby joined a certain silver fox on the This Morning sofa for the very first time.”
Ant chimed in, saying: “And the stars aligned and a decade on, mornings without Phil and Holly would be like fish without chips, ice cream with out jelly, Tom without Gerry, we could go on.”
But the pair had quite the surprise for Phillip and Holly, treating them to messages from This Morning favourites and past sofa guests, bringing back happy memories.
Holly Willoughby shared the experience on Instagram, with a lovely photo of both presenting duos.
She said: “Well that was an incredible surprise... thank you @antanddec and @thismorning for making it so special... 10 years have flown by because they have been so happy, I’ve learnt so much, laughed so much and to be trusted with your story’s and invited into your front room every morning with my best friend is an absolute honour... here’s to the next 10! 🥂⭐️❤️🥰”.
Holly also shared a sweet throwback picture from the early presenting days with Phillip.
In her caption, she wrote: "Happy @thismorning anniversary @schofe ... 10 years of pure joy and laughter... so lucky to share a sofa with you 💕"
We’ve certainly enjoyed watching Holly and Phillip presenting, and we hope to have many more years to come!
