Phillip Schofield tears up over Holly Willoughby's Christmas present to him on 'This Morning'.

The presenting duo are fronting a festive edition of the ITV show on Christmas Day (25.12.21) and in the specially recorded episode, he is clearly emotional after Holly recorded a special poem for him with Tom Foolery, whom Phillip teamed up with for her 40th birthday earlier this year.

The poem begins: "For my birthday this year you conspired with Tom, with our poem for Holly’s special day.

"Well in life what goes around always comes back, so now it’s our words headed your way.

"If there’s one thing we know Christmas is for, it’s for telling your loved one we care

"And for over a decade we’ve shared so many moments, and from my first day you’ve always been there."

In the poem, Holly reflects on the "many moments" they've shared together and her pal's "iconic locks", while she also describes Phil as her "mentor and friend", and admits it's helped getting to spend time with him during lockdown.

The piece concludes: "I can never express to you the difference it made to spend lockdown at work with a best mate.

"We’ve shared book birthdays and three times you’ve welcomed me here, you’ve been there for me through to this date.

"So as we rap up this rhyme and we wish you a Christmas divine, we have one thing left to say that is true.

"You’ve been a mentor and friend and I hope that won’t end, and all I want for Christmas is that you keep being you!”

After the recording airs, Phil looks emotional and blows a kiss to his co-star and thanks her for such a "lovely present".

He responds: "Thank you so much. What a lovely present. It’s beautiful, and thank you Tom as well, thank you so much.”

Watch This Morning’s Christmas Day show tomorrow (Saturday 25th December 2021) from 10am on ITV and ITV Hub.
