Speaking for the first time about the possibility of joining This Morning when Fern Britton leaves the chat show, Holly Willoughby said she'd be delighted to work with Phillip Schofield.
"I would never pass up the opportunity to work with Phillip. He is lovely" the 28-year-old told a British magazine.
Her comments heightened speculation that the bubbly blonde has already been offered the slot.
She is said to be Phillip's first choice as his co-anchor as they have already worked together on Dancing On Ice.
Meanwhile outgoing presenter Fern has also given her approval.
As a new mum, Holly will have her work cut out, though. "With the Xtra Factor, a new baby and Dancing On Ice I'm pretty busy," she admitted.
