This Morning presenters Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield are gearing up for their grand return to the ITV daytime show following a summer off with their families.
The much-loved hosts have revealed that their fans can look forward to an "exciting" and "fresh" new show, full of exciting ideas and endless entertainment upon the daytime entertainment programme on Monday September 6.
Blonde bombshell Holly told ITV: "Time with my family over the summer is the best, but I always look forward to seeing my second family back at This Morning.
“The return in September is always quite an exciting time to learn about what we've got coming up over the next year and it amazes me how the team always come up with new and fresh ideas every time."
Co-host Phillip added: “It’s nice to have a bit of time off over the summer to catch up with friends and family and I love getting out in the garden and pouring a gin and tonic… But I love working so I never get holiday blues.
“I always look forward to getting back to a new series, I’m always happy to get back to work.”
Sharing his excitement about the return on Instagram, The Cube presenter 59, posted a snap of him and best friend Holly, 40, posing in their TV best.
“Back to work @ThisMorning next week,” he captioned the post. “See you (and you, @hollywilloughby!) Monday from 10am on @itv, ITV Hub and @wearestv1.”
This Morning viewers have every reason to get excited as the show's bosses have already lined up plenty of new content for this upcoming year.
Former Coronation Street actor Nigel Havers has secured his own filmed segment interviewing other celebrities, while Julia Bradbury is going out on location to explore Britain’s favourite forests.

“With the NTAs, it’s always a big one because it’s a public vote so that’s an important one,” Phillip, who was recently seen holding back tears after winning a special recognition LGBTQ+ award, said. “There are no stuffy panels.
“The great thing about the NTAs is that it’s voted for by people who have been with us all the way throughout the pandemic and I think this year more than ever it’ll mean a lot to the team because it really was almost like a wartime spirit, that sort of hunkering down and a ‘we’ll be OK, we can get through this’ type of spirit.
“I think this year more than ever, it really would mean a lot to the team,” the presenter shared, as co-host Holly agreed with gusto.
“The NTA’s are such an important award for us as they are voted for by the viewers,” she expressed. “When we know viewers have taken time to vote for This Morning it's always such a boost for the whole team.

It really means the world to us and we are so grateful for every single vote.
“And I think this year actually, it'd mean even more like Phillip said, because it has been the most extraordinary year and everyone involved in the show worked twice as hard to ensure we could stay on air.
“It has been fantastic to have gained some new viewers during that time but trust me, we needed them for company just as much as they were needing us during the lockdowns too,” the star added.
While fans are excited to Phil and Holly's return, many are also lamenting not seeing Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford on screens anymore.
