It's hard to believe it's only been one month since TV presenter Holly Willoughby sensationally quit her role on This Morning.
Following a difficult year in the spotlight, Holly quit the high-profile presenting gig, professing to want to spend more time with her "family". This came after ex-bff and co-host Phillip Schofield's resignation from the show, after he admitted to an affair with a younger, male colleague.
She wrote in a statement on Instagram at the time: "I have let ITV know today that after 14 years, I will not be returning to This Morning."
"To everyone who has ever worked on the show over the years, thank you so so much," she continued.
"This is such a difficult goodbye, you are incredible and I forever will be proud of what we've done together.
"Thank you to everyone at ITV for being supportive. To every guest who has sat on our sofa, thank you."
"Most of all, thank you to the wonderful viewers. You've been so loyal, so supportive and the very best company every day.
"Richard and Judy said 'We only look after this show, it will always belong to the viewers.'"
Holly, 42, went on: "It's been an honour to just be part of it's story and I know this story has many chapters left to go. Sadly, however, I now feel I have to make this decision for me and my family.
"I will miss you all so much. Holly."
But today, a close friend and former colleague of the Dancing On Ice star has said that Holly will almost certainly be returning to our television screens in the future.
Speaking to Closer, ex-This Morning expert Dr Ranj said of the mother-of-three: "Of course she will come back to TV, she's too good not to.
"I don't know where or what show, but she's so good at it, it would be a shame for her to back away completely."
Dr Ranj added that he's recently caught up with the formerly-adored TV star following a 'tough' year.
"She replied and she's good," he explained. "Obviously it's a really difficult place for her to be in and she made a really difficult decision.
"But the kind thing to do is to reach out and just check in."
