Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield are firm fixtures on TV screens. The pair have been hosting This Morning together since 2009. Express.co.uk has the lowdown on when the beloved presenters will be making a comeback to screens.

When are Holly Willoughby and Phil Schofield returning?

Holly and Phil will be returning to This Morning on Tuesday, September 1, according to ITV.

So, they will be gracing screens once more from next week after the August bank holiday.

While the twosome has been away, This Morning’s veteran Friday hosts Ruth Langsford and Eamonn Holmes have stepped up to the plate in fronting the show on their behalf.

There have also been some guest presenters in the Friday slots to stand in for Ruth and Eamonn while they host most of the week.

Among the guests have been Alison Hammond, Dermot O’Leary, Rochelle Humes and Ore Oduba.

When This Morning does return with Holly and Phil, fans can expect more of the same from the pair.

According to ITV, the show will continue to focus on escapism amid uncertainty created by the coronavirus pandemic.

There will of course be the regular cooking, beauty, travel and animal segments fans have come to know and love.

Additionally, Coronation Street and Downton Abbey actor Nigel Havers will be fronting a fresh new series titled Best of British.

The four-part strand will see Havers visit various locations around Britain, celebrating the biggest and most innovative achievements from the nation.

Havers said: “It’s a genuine pleasure to be able to take the time out to tour Britain for This Morning viewers this September.

“I’ve packed some hand sanitiser, a picnic blanket and an umbrella just in case!”

Another new segment viewers can look forward to is Dr Scott’s Super Dogs, which will see the vet championing canines across the nation helping to save lives.

Dr Scott said of the three-part series: “I’ve been completely blown away by the bravery, skill and intelligence of the dogs I’ve met.

“Whether they are trained in detecting disease and illness in humans or have learnt to sniff out poachers in African reserves, it’s simply mind-blowing!”

Finally, chef John Torode will be leaving his kitchen behind to embark on a travel strand celebrating produce along the coast.

Torode’s Skeleton Coast will see the MasterChef judge travelling by air, land and sea along Dorset and the Jurassic Coast paying visits to a blueberry farm, a flour mill and a cider farm.

He said: “Dorset is one of my favourite parts of the country and I feel very lucky to have been able to get out and explore the mighty Jurassic Coast during this time.

“I cannot wait to share some gorgeous recipes from the area.

“Not to mention that viewers will get the chance to judge my kayaking skills… So watch Torode back out on the road.”

This Morning viewers have a wealth of new content lined up to look forward to now.

This Morning airs on ITV weekdays at 10am
