Holly Willoughby has been praised by This Morning viewers after offering to send a printer to a single mum trying to home-school without one.

The presenter – a mother of three – made the kind offer live on air after she and co-host Phillip Schofield were moved by a woman who called in to the ITV show.

The woman said she had three children and that all of them had to use their one laptop for home-schooling during the coronavirus lockdown.

Making matters even harder was the fact she didn’t have a working printer.

But Willoughby, 39, told her: “Do you know what? I’ve got a spare printer at home. I’m going to bring it in tomorrow. Give us your address. I actually have a spare printer.

“Mine broke, I ordered a new one and the other one kicked back into life, and all I keep doing when I’m sitting at my desk is banging my leg on it.

“You can have that printer.
