At the opening of today’s show, the presenters stood out from each other and noted the further lifting of restrictions, with Holly saying, “Today marks the third step on the government’s path to get out of lockdown, including “cautious hugs”. “
“Unfortunately, Holly and I will have to wait a little longer for our first hug, as hugs aren’t allowed in the workplace,” Phil added.
“This is so bad! Holly exclaimed. “Geographically, we cannot kiss each other here. “
“Well, we’re on the outside, but it’s still the workplace,” Phil said.
The couple were able to kiss each other onscreen in September, albeit through a large sheet of plastic with arms called a “hug curtain”.
Earlier this month, Holly announced that she was embarking on a whole new project.
“This is a message I couldn’t wait to send… I worked on a very special project – a book! ” she said. “Writing is such a personal process and between these pages you will find many little pieces of me…
“I’m finally at a point in my life where I can see a little more clearly and want to share my truths in the hope that maybe they will help you too. This book is my celebration of how inner and outer beauty can work together in perfect harmony. ”
