Holly Willoughby has cut her her seven-week family holiday short to quarantine so she can return to in time for hosting duties on This Morning.
The 39-year-old initially planned to fly home from the Algarve towards the end of August after enjoying a sun-drenched break with husband Dan Baldwin, 45, and their children Harry, 11, Belle, nine, and Chester, five.
However, the government promptly reintroduced coronavirus travel restrictions, meaning passengers holidaying in Portugal must self-isolate for 14 days.
Because of the new guidelines, Holly has had to take action, flying back two weeks earlier than planned in order to adhere to the quarantine rules.
A source told MailOnline: "Holly accepts that she has to go into quarantine and will follow the rules.
"The summer break is her chance to re-charge after a hectic period and to spend time with her family.
"After all the stresses of the pandemic she had been looking forward to relaxing as long as possible.
"Instead of seven weeks away she has had to make it five – but it's what she's had to do to keep the This Morning team safe and to ensure she returns to the show on time."
The family stayed in the luxury resort of Quinta do Lago, also favoured by co-host Phillip Schofield and Wayne Rooney, among others.

Another ITV presenter who also got caught up in the new quarantine restrictions was Piers Morgan.
The GMB presenter was holidaying in Saint Tropez with his family and had less than 24 hours to arrive back before the isolation rules were implemented.
The TV presenter flew black with his sons Spencer, 27, and Bertie, 19, ahead of the rule change, and snapped a picture of the trio arriving back at the airport.
Daily Star Online has contacted Holly's rep for comment.
