Baby number four? olly Willoughby is feeling broody for her fourth baby, as she gushes over This Morning alum Rochelle Humes’ newborn son Blake
Holly and Phil have prerecorded the episode for the first time, as they keep viewers entertained during Christmas morning.
During the episode the presenting duo speak to Rochelle, 31, and Holly asks how Blake’s big sisters have been, she said: ‘They are brilliant. They are constantly all over him and fighting about who’s going to hold him and who’s passing me the baby wipes… but it’s really nice, and I think because he’s a boy there’s no competition, they are just trying to be mini mummies!’
Watching Rochelle holding up baby Blake to say goodbye at the end of the chat, Holly gushes, ‘Oh I want one of those…’ Phillip said, ‘No, you don’t! To which Holly replied, ‘I do!’ Phillip responded, ‘No you don’t, you’ve got enough!’ But Holly insisted, ‘OK… but I do!’
Holly is mum to her children Harry, 11, Belle, nine, and Chester, six.
Before this moment, the show starts with the excitable hosts wishing viewers Merry Christmas with Holly adding: ‘It’s today! We are very excited to be celebrating with you this morning… and this is the first time ever, the first This Morning Christmas.’

Sat amongst the festively decorated set and snowy window scene, Phillip said: ‘Why did we only just think of this? Loving this!’ before explaining, ‘We have all sorts of things planned… but surely it is time for a pre-lunch tipple?’
And just like a Christmas miracle, Alison Hammond appears riding a mulled wine cart into the studio, almost crashing into the table!
Once the duo has sipped on their hot mulled wine, they go on to speak with none other than Father Christmas live from the North Pole after his busy night, and then give expats living in Australia a chance to send messages to their loved ones back home.
Phillip and Holly then arrange for special Christmas surprises, first for eight-year-old Evie who was diagnosed with a rare blood disorder. Phillip said: ‘After months of gruelling treatment and countless hospital stays we thought Evie deserved a special treat this Christmas.’

Viewers will witness emotional scenes as Evie’s home is transformed into a snowy grotto and she gets to speak with her favourite singer Olly Murs and receives an iPad gift from the show.
Then ten-year-old Maizie, who became a carer for her younger brother and her mum when her mother was diagnosed with breast cancer, also receives a special surprise.
During a trip to Lapland UK, the huge dance fan is surprised by Anton Du Beke who invites her to perform with him on his dance show next year.
Back in the studio, it’s time for a quick toilet roll drinking game before Phillip, Holly, Alison and Josie Gibson relive some fond memories during the year whilst opening some presents from each other… with Phillip and Holly so touched by their gifts that they become a little teary.

Guests on the show include Davina McCall talking about The Masked Singer returning on Boxing Day and Dick and Angel Strawbridge discuss their Christmas show Escape to the Chateaux at Christmas.
Phillip and Holly also compete in a festive version of ‘Guess The Gadget’ with Steve Wilson – who also receives a gift – as do other members of the This Morning family including Alice Beer, Dr Chris Steele MBE, Deidre Sanders and Gino D’Acampo.

The pair then go outside for a performance of ‘Santa Claus Is Coming To Town’ by 80s legend Tony Hadley. The singer explains how since lockdown he’s been ‘effectively unemployed’. He said, ‘I’ve done a lot of gardening and hoovering – I’m the master of the hoover – but it’s good to be here today!’
Before the end of the show, Phillip said, ‘Well that’s nearly it from us today, but before we go we just wanted to take a moment to thank you for allowing us to keep you company through one of the strangest and toughest years many of us have ever known.’
Holly added, ‘We hope that we’ve managed to raise a few smiles, have a few laughs and most importantly been there to give you a virtual hug when you’ve needed it most.’
Phillip went on to say, ‘But we couldn’t have done it alone…’
Holly said, ‘Nope. We always talk about the This Morning family, and that family extends far beyond the camera, and every day the most dedicated team work so hard to help us bring you the show that we love doing so much.’
Phillip said, ‘So we thought it was time you met them! So as you get ready to tuck into your turkey, and hopefully think forward to a nice positive 2021, all that remains for us to do is wish you a very happy and healthy Christmas from our family to yours.’
