Holly Willoughby will miss a THIRD day of This Morning and be replaced by Josie Gibson again

HOLLY Willoughby will miss a THIRD day of This Morning after revealing she has been forced to pull out.

Viewers were shocked yesterday when Josie Gibson appeared alongside Phillip Schofield on the daytime show, with the pair explaining that Holly, 40, is poorly.


And Josie, 36, was back again today, with the star admitting that she had a "quiet cry" after the success of yesterday.

This evening, ITV confirmed that Bristolian Josie would be taking over for a third day in a row, during an advert for Thursday's episode.

Josie appeared in the pre-recorded clip and said: "Tomorrow at 10, things are set to get wild as we chat to Tiger King star Carol Baskin."

And Phillip, 59, added: "And we'll be joined by the man who claims to have the biggest penis in the world. At 10."

Taking to her Instagram page this morning, Holly confirmed that she is still under the weather as she thanked her co-star for stepping in.

She wrote: "Thank you Josie Gibson for saving the day yesterday… You are a dream!

"I'll be back as soon as I'm in no threat of vomiting on Schofe."

The TV favourite added a green sick emoji to further drive home her ailment.

Josie thanked viewers for supporting her after she co-hosted with Phil yesterday, admitting that it was an "honour" to sit beside him.

And Phil sent his love to Holly live on the show, telling fans: "We were texting Holly all afternoon yesterday.

"It's a tummy bug that is going around everywhere, it's apparently only a two day thing – she has lost her appetite, so it'd be a shame not to come in as we've got great food later!"

The star went on: "Morning Hols, hope you're okay – I'll text you later and hopefully see you tomorrow."
