Phillip Schofield in tears as Holly Willoughby gives him incredibly thoughtful gift
Phillip Schofield is left in tears after receiving a Christmas present from Holly Willoughby on This Morning.
The duo are set to host a special Christmas edition on ITV on Christmas Day, which is scheduled to air at 10am.
As the pair sit down to exchange Christmas presents, Phil gets emotional after Holly shares that she’s teamed up to write a special poem for him with writer and performance artist Tom Foolery, who Phil previously worked with for Holly’s 40th birthday earlier this year.
“For my birthday this year you conspired with Tom, with our poem for Holly’s special day,” the poem begins. “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 ones we care. And for over a decade we’ve shared so many moments, and from my first day you’ve always been there.”
The poem goes on to reflect on the “many moments” the pair have shared together and her pal’s “iconic locks”, while describing Phil as her “mentor and friend”.
The piece finishes: “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”.
“Thank you so much,” he emotionally exclaims. “What a lovely present. It’s beautiful, and thank you Tom as well, thank you so much.”
