HOLLY Willoughby and Phillip Schofield have long been brightening up our week days on This Morning.
The ITV hosts usually present the daytime show every Monday to Thursday, but they are currently off air – and here's why.
Why aren't Holly and Phil on This Morning today?
Viewers tuning in to This Morning this week (October 17, 2022) will have noticed that Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield are missing from the sofa.
Their disappearance from the show comes just days after the pair were booed whilst attending the National Television Awards 2022.
As the cast and crew of the show took to the stage to pick up their award for the best daytime TV show, the crowd began loudly booing.
A source in the audience said: "The boos in the room were very loud when Holly and Phil were announced as the winners.

According to ITV, the pair are taking a week off for their half-term break.
Although half-term doesn't take place in Wales until the week starting Monday, October 31, some schools in England have half term this week and others have their break from Monday, October 24.
