Holly and her co-host Phillip Schofield confessed they struggled to continue presenting This Morning earlier in the week after Prime Minister Boris Johnson addressed the nation to announce the news that Russia had launched a full-scale invasion of Ukraine.
After watching the announcement, Phillip said to viewers: “Well, welcome back. Obviously it’s incredibly difficult to carry on in a lighter mood, we’ve really just seen those really quite serious words…”
Holly chimed in: “You can’t believe what you’re hearing, seeing, can you?”
Phillip reassured viewers: “We will carry on because that’s what we always do.”
