GMB: First look at Holly Willoughby in Midsomer Murders

ITV have just confirmed Holly Willoughby will return to her hosting duties on This Morning next week.

On Friday’s episode, co-hosts Rochelle Humes and Andi Peters announced that Holly would be back on screens next week, with it also being confirmed that she would be joined by fan favourite Alison Hammond for her first two days back.

Monday marks Holly’s official return to This Morning after almost two months break away.

It is expected Holly will resume her role as head presenter from Monday to Thursday while Alison and her usual Friday co-host Dermot O’Leary will return to their end of the week slot.

After Phillip Schofield stepped down earlier this year after his affair with a much younger This Morning employee, ITV bosses explained that no one would be replacing him and that there would instead be a rotating roster of stars joining Holly as co-hosts.

This would include Alison and Dermot, as well as Josie Gibson and Craig Doyle.

Holly has been absent from This Morning over the past few months as she took her annual summer break.

Once again, she visited Portugal with her family but kept this year’s trip private by not sharing any snaps from her travels on her social media.

The television presenter usually takes six weeks off each summer but in light of the scandals that have plagued This Morning this year, she took an extended leave of two months.

Holly’s return will also coincide with a pay rise. According to The Daily Mail, it is reported that Holly will now earn a seven figure salary, as she is set to get a £300,000 increase on her existing £700,000 annual salary when she goes back to work.

She did have a small cameo on the morning show last week when she appeared in a promotional video for Midsomer Murders.

Viewers saw Holly excitedly discuss her appearance while she got her hair and makeup done as she spoke about the script and what it was like filming her scene.

Holly’s brief appearance on the iconic crime drama was actually filmed over two years ago but the episode, titled The Witches of Angels Rise, finally aired on Sunday night.

The TV presenter opened up about her acting debut on her Instagram.

She outlined: “This truly was a dream come true… Thank you to the whole team at Midsomer Murders for making me so welcome and really looking after me… I loved every second.”

This Morning airs weekdays from 10am on ITV.
