HOLLY Willoughby has revealed how her cheeky six-year-old son Chester refused to go to school during her break from This Morning.
The 40-year-old TV presenter shared an adorable snap of the youngster wrapped up in his duvet and covered in teddies.
Holly laughed as she explained she "hoped he was pointing" at her, while Chester stuck out his index finger to direct his mum towards the door.
"Someone didn’t want to go to school today… I hope Chester was pointing at me," she wrote beneath the sweet snap alongside an embarrassed emoji.
Fans immediately flooded the comments section as they joked he got his "fingers mixed up" and may have been giving his mum a middle finger.
"I thought that was a middle finger there," one shocked fan wrote alongside laughing faces, as another agreed: "You're not the only one."
A third chimed in: "I have a feeling he got his fingers mixed up and that was supposed to be the middle finger."
"That's how I feel most mornings," bless him, a third said, while another mum wrote: "My son also has that Friday feeling!"
It comes as viewers of This Morning were left disappointed when Holly announced she would not be appearing on the show from Monday to Thursday this week.
While it's not entirely sure why Holly took time out, the star speculated she was working on another exciting project during her absence.
It comes as fans theorised that Holly took a week off in order to kick start her acting career after her cryptic Instagram post.
In the snap, she is smiling coyly at the camera, with six-year-old son Chester laying on her back, his face cropped from view.
In the caption alongside, she wrote: "Vitamin D, caffeine and a side order of distraction from Chester…
"Working on something else next week which I can’t wait to share with you all…. Thank you to the lovely Rochelle Humes for keeping my side of the sofa warm."
The mysterious picture post prompted many to speculate Holly has bagged her first acting role – this being a plum spot in ITV drama Midsomer Murders.
The presenter "squealed with joy" when she was offered a role live on This Morning last month.
Now one follower has commented: "Thinking it could be Midsomer TV drama. I remember them asking you to join them on the drama and they would see what they could arrange.
One then suggested: "I think Holly is working on her Midsomer script," as the presenter was posing with a fountain pen and notebook.
Stand-in host Rochelle Humes reassured audiences that Holly would be returning to the show next week.
Singer Rochelle confirmed that Holly would be back on the sofa next Monday but didn't reveal why the regular host was missing.
She revealed that Holly would be making her way back to the show, assuring viewers they would have to deal with her blunders "temporarily".
"Don't worry, Holly's back next week. It's alright, it's just temporarily," she reassured fans of the ITV breakfast show.
