Stepping out in the new Christmas set on This Morning today, Holly assured viewers that her co-star was ok.
‘Don’t panic, we haven’t changed his voice to protect his identity,’ she said at the beginning of the programme.
Phillip laughed and mouthed the words ‘I’m fine’, before saying: ‘I have been fully tested. I feel amazingly good, but I have a touch of laryngitis.’
Holly asked: ‘So you’re just gonna sound kind of sexy actually? Sounds quite good doesn’t it!’

Phillip added: ‘I just sound a little croaky today,’ putting on a deeper voice before saying: ‘Anyway I feel fine, I’m just a bit croaky.’
