Why is Holly Willoughby not wearing her wedding ring today on This Morning? Here's what we know...
While Loose Women and Lorraine announced they would no longer be filming new shows amid the Coronavirus outbreak, This Morning is still going strong.
One person wrote on Twitter: "Holly not wearing wedding ring today how come."
Despite being married to Dan Baldwin for 13 years, Holly, 39, explained why she has decided to ditch her wedding band.
Speaking to Dr Ranj about trying to limit the spread of COVID-19 with good hand hygiene, the mum-of-three admitted: “I keep taking my rings off to moisturise and keep forgetting to put them back on so I’ve just given up now”.
Things comes after Holly admitted she was "desperate for a hug" during the show today.
Respecting the social distancing guidelines set out by the government, Holly, and Phil sat noticeably far away from each other when opening the show.
Phil, 57, told viewers: "Still here. But you might notice something a bit different as we are sitting far apart as per government guidelines."
Holly, 39, added: "Yes we are but do you know what, I am really looking forward to that moment just to be able to give you a big hug because it’s the one thing I think we really need right now.
"But we are here and trying to keep you company and lift spirits for people at home."
