She only gave birth to baby Chester 6 weeks ago, but it seems Holly Willoughby has already been itching to visit her work friends. The 33-year-old popped up for a surprise visit during a cooking segment with TV chef Gino D’Acampo on This Morning on Monday.
The new mum seemed delighted to be reunited with her co-host Phillip Schofield and her stand-in Amanda Holden and even brought Chester in to meet them, although she kept him away from the TV cameras.
“I’m good. I was so nervous though, I was like, ‘Oh my God, can I go on? Can I go on?’” she joked. “Chester is really good. He’s 6 weeks today – he’s here, my mums got him, he’s fine.”
And it seemed Holly timed her visit right as she was just in time to try the food.
“Oh, I hope you’ve got an extra plate!” she said. “I smelt the food and I thought I’ve got to come … I brought the baby in to show you and I’ve lucked out because you’ve done a family feast!”
Holly is taking a year of maternity leave to spend time with baby Chester, her 3-year-old daughter Belle and son Harry, 5.
“I like the chaos that comes with it,” she recently revealed about how she’s coping with three little ones. “I like that feeling of being in the house, stuff everywhere, running around trying to get everybody ready! I’m taking a year off This Morning, but if and when things get too much, that’s when I’ll change things.”
Lovely to see you and Chester are doing well, Holly!
