She’s a permanent fixture on daytime television, but Holly Willoughby left fans bewildered during Wednesday’s edition of This Morning after her usual place alongside Philip Schofield was occupied by Rochelle Humes.

The former S Club Juniors singer, frequently used as a stand-in on the long-running show, was parachuted in at the eleventh hour after permanent presenter Holly, 38, was forced to call in sick.

Explaining the unexpected change, Phillip, 56, admitted his regular co-host was stricken with the flu after complaining about feeling unwell while presenting the show throughout the week.
