Holly Willoughby warns Phillip Schofield she will 'lick his face' on first This Morning once social distancing ends

HOLLY Willoughby warned Phillip Schofield that she will "lick his face" on their first This Morning once social distancing ends.

Today's instalment of the ITV show kicked off with the presenters sharing their excitement at Prime Minister Boris Johnson's road-map out of lockdown, which was announced yesterday.

The government have said that if all goes to plan, all of England's coronavirus restrictions will be lifted by 21 June – and life can finally go back to normal.

Holly, 40, pointed out that this date is a Monday – which means she and 58-year-old Phillip will be hosting This Morning.

Squealing with excitement, the blonde beauty asked her co-star: "What are you going to do first?"

Phil replied: "I just want someone to sit in the garden with!"

Holly corrected: "You can do that before though – the 21st?

"It's a Monday, the first thing I am going to do is hug you.

"I might lick your face, just because I can!"

Phil burst into laughter as he repeated what she said, going on to share his excitement at not having to social distance during filming.

He said: "Can you imagine how weird… That means I could pick [my chair] up and come and sit over there [with you].

"That will be the truest sign, after all we have been through – staying on air, still holding on by our fingernails, incredible crews.

"That will be the sign that life is going back to normal to me."

Boris Johnson's plan to unlock the nation will start in less than two weeks, with the road-map to get the country back to normal after the "extraordinary" success of Britain's speedy vaccine rollout unveiled yesterday.

He hopes to get Britain booming and back to near-normal by June, and give every adult a vaccine by the end of July.

All restrictions will be lifted at the same time across England – with no more tiers in sight – but each step will be assessed against four tests before restrictions ease.
