Holly Willoughby in floods of tears over birthday surprise from This Morning

Holly Willoughby was reduced to tears as she was given a heartwarming birthday surprise when she arrived at the This Morning studios.

The blonde bombshell is celebrating turning 40 on Wednesday (10th February) and she became overwhelmed with emotion when she was greeted by her ITV colleagues.

Her co-star Phillip Schofield took to Instagram to share video clips of Holly's heartfelt surprise.

Phil posted some videos on his Instagram stories as he told his fans: "The birthday girl is about to arrive, everything is ready, she doesn't know about this."

Schofield then showed his followers the ITV studios hallway as it was decorated with balloons and Stevie Wonder's Happy Birthday was heard in the background.

This Morning's backstage crew were standing socially-distanced along the corridor as they waited for the birthday girl to arrive.

Holly was then seen walking through the door wearing a stylish black puffer coat, trainers and a face mask.

The star was overjoyed by the epic surprise and was reduced to tears as she wiped her eyes while walking along the hallway to her ITV dressing room.

Phil was waiting for her in the dressing room which he'd decorated with balloons, flowers and a giant 40 in lights.

An emotional Holly thanked her colleagues with tears in her eyes as she said: "Aww thank you. I'm just going to go in here and cry."

Holly's surprise comes after her birthday celebrations were kicked off in style after Dancing On Ice on Sunday evening.
