Holly is behind a brand called Wylde Moon and the image was posted to their page which boasts 176,000 followers .

“It may have been the first time I’ve made a Kedgeree but it definitely won’t be the last!”

The recipe was the brainchild of This Morning chef Clodagh McKenna

The chef, who is married to the late Queen’s godson, was one of a handful of stars to pay tribute to Phillip after he announced his departure.

She wrote: “21 years of brightening up our mornings. And I’ve been so lucky to be part of 3 of them.

“I’ll miss the morning hug, the twinkle in your eye that makes me giggle and your empathy. You will be missed.”

Holly hasn’t appeared on This Morning since Phillip’s shock statement as she has been on leave for half term.

Yesterday he caused a sensation when he released a further statement admitting to an affair with a younger staff member on This Morning.

In it he said: “I am making this statement via the Daily Mail to whom I have already apologised personally for misleading, through my lawyer who I also misled, about a story which they wanted to write about me a few days ago.

“The first thing I want to say is: I am deeply sorry for having lied to them, and to many others about a relationship that I had with someone working on This Morning.

“I did have a consensual on-off relationship with a younger male colleague at This Morning.

“Contrary to speculation, whilst I met the man when he was a teenager and was asked to help him to get into television, it was only after he started to work on the show that it became more than just a friendship. That relationship was unwise, but not illegal. It is now over.

“When I chose to come out I did so entirely for my own wellbeing. Nobody ‘forced’ me out.

“Neither I nor anyone else, to my knowledge, has ever issued an injunction, super or otherwise, about my relationship with this colleague, he was never moved on or sacked by or because of me.

“In an effort to protect my ex-colleague I haven’t been truthful about the relationship.

“But my recent, unrelated, departure from This Morning fuelled speculation and raised questions which have been impacting him, so for his sake it is important for me to be honest now.”
