Holly Willoughby is being replaced by Rochelle Humes as host of This Morning as she takes another week off presenting duties.

The 40 year old has so far enjoyed two weeks off from the show over the Easter break, with her and Phillip Schofield being replaced by Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford and Alison Hammond and Dermot O'Leary.

But as Phillip, 59, return to his day job on the hit ITV daytime show this week, Holly has taken to social media to reveal she will not be sat beside him on the sofa.

Instead, former The Saturdays singer Rochelle – who held the reigns whilst Holly Willoughby hosted I'm A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! in 2018 – will be hosting with Phillip.

Holly teased that she will be working on "something else" this week, instead of entertaining the nation.

"Working on something else next week which I can't wait to share with you all.

"Thank you to the lovely @rochellehumes for keeping my side of the sofa warm… x."

Rochelle sweetly commented on blonde beauty Holly's post: "Got you," alongside a red love heart and kissing face emoji.

In the photograph accompanying her announcement, Holly shared a gorgeous glimpse of her youngest son Chester.
