This Morning host Holly Willoughby teased her co-host Phillip Schofield’s return to the ITV show, following his coronavirus battle.
The TV presenter was forced to drop all hosting duties last week, after he tested positive for Covid on Monday January 31.
Since then, Phillip has continued to test positive for the virus before finally testing negative this week.
Phillip shared the exciting news that his coronavirus Lateral Flow test came back negative on Monday, after he was forced to miss work for a whole week.
The This Morning presenter was replaced by Alison Hammond and Vernon Kay on the show.
He was also replaced on Dancing on Ice on Sunday by Stephen Mulhern, despite earlier hopes he’d be able to host the show.
Now, pal and co-host Holly has shared “good news”, after he recently apologised for missing the show.
Speaking on Tuesday during the opening of the latest episode, Holly hinted Phil could be back on the sofa very soon.
She said: “We do have some good news because, it has been lovely with Alison, but Phil yesterday afternoon had a Covid negative test, and today he is negative again so he is released and free into the world.”
Alison added: “I’m so happy for him,” after the “good news”, while she added it was “good to be back” hosting for another day.
The 59-year-old was over the moon on Monday as he took to his Instagram Stories to share a picture of his negative Lateral Flow test.
“Oh hello! What do we have here?” he shared while adding a fingers crossed sticker.
However, just a few hours before, the star was disappointed when another test he did showed a faint positive result.
Due to the negative result hours later, it could mean that the TV personality is no longer contagious or, hopefully, free of the virus.
“OH COME ON!!! This is getting so bloody dull now!!! Day 7. I am seriously going out after this,” he had written.
This Morning airs weekdays at 10am on ITV.
