Holly Willoughby burst into tears as she received a phone call from her husband on her last day presenting 'This Morning' before she goes on maternity leave
Holly Willoughby has bid a tearful farewell to 'This Morning'.
The 33-year-old beauty - who is expecting her third child with TV producer husband Daniel Baldwin - filmed her last episode of the ITV series before going on maternity leave this morning (18.09.14) and struggled to fight back her tears.
Speaking as her replacement Amanda Holden walked on set to present her with a bouquet of flowers, Holly said: "I'm officially handing my baton over to you, look after my Phillip [Schofield]."
The former 'Dancing on Ice' presenter - who is also taking a break from her duties as a team captain on 'Celebrity Juice' - then received a phone call from her husband, causing her to burst into tears as she said goodbye to the 'This Morning' team.
Dan said: "We can't wait for you to come home, all of us. The kids are so excited. We were talking about it this morning. I think [our daughter] Belle thinks you got the sack!"
Holly's husband - with whom she also has son Harry - then joked that they were expecting a second daughter, which she quickly denied.
He said: "I just wanted to say, have you made the announcement yet that we're having a baby girl?"
Holly added: "No we're not, we really don't know."
