Why is Holly Willoughby not on This Morning today?

Holly Willoughby won't be on This Morning this week as she is busy filming for another ITV show called The Games.

She announced the news on Instagram, sharing a photo of herself joining a cheerleading crew.

She explained: "Morning… going to miss my @thismorning family this week however I’ve had a change of career and become a Cheer Leader… it was only a matter of time 💁🏼‍♀️… ❤️ @thegamestv #thegames."

Fans were quick to comment, with one writing: "You're definitely gonna be missed on this morning this week🥺🥺"

"Gonna miss you this week! Have a great time filming The Games though, will be watching tonight ❤️," said another.

A third added: "Holly we miss you too ❤️".

Phillip, 60, also kicked off the show on Monday, explaining: "Rochelle is joining us today because Holly is busy filming The Games which is live at 9pm on ITV this week, so she's off all week."
