Holly Willoughby returns to This Morning after emotional statement and 'vowing to never mention Phillip Schofield again' | The Sun

HOLLY Willoughby returned to This Morning again today following her emotional statement.

The Sun revealed last night she's vowed "never to mention Phillip Schofield again" after having to address the scandal on camera.

Holly, 42, wore a brightly patterned high-neck dress, which matched with her co-host Josie Gibson.

The TV presenter – still bronzed from her holiday to Portugal – had a massive smile on her face as she introduced the show.

She showed no signs of discomfort at being back at work following a stressful few weeks since Phillip, 61, came clean about his affair with a much younger ITV runner.

Holly kicked off the show highlighting carers week, before telling viewers that famous faces including Martin Lewis, Sarah Beeny and the Repair Shop's Suzie Fletcher are set to appear throughout the programme.

Yesterday, Holly fought back tears as she nervously read a statement about feeling "shaken, troubled and let down" after Phillip's affair with a younger colleague was revealed.

Phillip, who was married at the time, branded the relationship "unwise but not illegal", telling The Sun Holly had no idea.

We revealed last week that Phillip apologised for lying to her about his secret relationship — and for tainting her public image.

The pair worked together for 14 years, since 2009, and were inseparable, but now they no longer speak.

Holly mentioned Phillip's name only once during a 90-second monologue following weeks of crisis at This Morning.

Phil told The Sun they have broken all ­contact — and revealed it was his paedophile brother’s imprisonment that made her distance herself from the friendship.

Holly spoke of starting a "new chapter" before being embraced by an emotional Josie, who said: "All we can be now is the family that we are."

Holly will be joined by Irish presenter Craig Doyle on Wednesday and Thursday, while Alison Hammond and Dermot O’Leary will be back for their usual slot on Friday.  

He has admitted having suicidal thoughts since he was forced out of ITV over the affair scandal that rocked his career.

In his Sun interview he revealed he worked with the This Morning runner for a short ­period and had become friends.

They met when the boy was just 15, but Phillip said that his colleague was 20 years old when he first had any kind of sexual contact with him – which happened a total of five or six times.
