Holly Willoughby replaced by Rochelle Humes as she confirms ANOTHER week off This Morning while teasing a secret project

HOLLY Willoughby has devastated fans after confirming she's taking ANOTHER week off from This Morning – while teasing a secret project.

The 40-year-old star took to her Instagram page to announce her absence this afternoon, thanking Rochelle Humes for "keeping the sofa warm" for her.

The TV favourite showed off her natural beauty as she posed for a beaming, make-up free selfie in her garden.

In the snap, Holly is laying on the grass with a notebook and pen beside her – as well as a mug of hot drink.

She is smiling coyly at the camera, with six-year-old son Chester laying on her back, his face cropped from view.

The presenter 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 @rochellehumes for keeping my side of the sofa warm… x"

Rochelle simply commented: "Got you ❤️😘"

But Holly's followers were disappointed to hear about her extended time away, with the star and co-host Phillip Schofield already off our screens for two weeks for their Easter break.

One wrote: "So no This Morning this week with you 😢"

Another echoed: "Gutted you're not on TM for another week can't wait to see what you're working on though."

A third wrote: "You’re such a tease 😂… love this photo so much!

"Will miss you again this week but so looking forward to hearing what you’ve got to share ❤️"

Holly and Phil were replaced with Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford for the first week of their Easter break, with Friday hosts' Dermot O'Leary and Alison Hammond taking over last week.
