Holly Willoughby was absent from presenting This Morning today, she usually appears alongside Phillip Schofield Monday to Thursday. But, the fan-favourite presenter was replaced by Alison Hammond and it wasn’t long before those watching at home were told why Holly wasn’t working.
“Hello and welcome to your mid-week instalment of This Morning,” Alison began.
“Alison is standing in for Holly who is having a well-deserved day off,” Phillip explained.
Together, the presenters were tasked with turning on the Christmas tree lights on the humongous tree outside the Television Studio, before kicking off the rest of the show.
While many were pleased to see Alison brightening up their Wednesday morning, many viewers wondered what was really going on.
Viewers rushed to Twitter to comment on Holly’s absence with one tweeting: “Yeah Holly have a day off, you already work 4 of them already!! #ThisMorning.”
Another speculated: “Holly Willoughby doesn’t have well deserved days off so something has happened that we’re not being told about #ThisMorning.”
A third posted: “Where tf is holly #ThisMorning much as I think alison rocks but we need holly.”
“#ThisMorning where’s Holly today?” someone else asked.
One referred back to a comment Holly made during yesteday’s show and tweeted: “As Holly said she’d be playing guess the gadget yesterday I’m guessing it’s not a planned day off. It’s no ones business really & they have a stand in, so why the F does everyone have to moan. Not happy with the situation the turn it off, you have a choice #ThisMorning.”
“I really hope holly is alright she seemed so excited about guess the gadget yesterday and now shes not on? #ThisMorning,” another chimed.
“Much prefer @AlisonHammond over Holly,” a fan tweeted.
Alison has been part of the This Morning family since 2003.
