Holly Willoughby sparked concern among her fans as she was missing from This Morning on Wednesday.

The 39 year old was absent from the ITV show, which she normally presents with BFF and co-host Phillip Schofield.

Alison Hammond replaced Holly and presented the show with Phil and as the show began, she said: "I'm standing in for Holly today as she enjoys a well-deserved day off."

However, fans took to social media to express their concerns over why Holly missed the show and pointed out that on Tuesday she had told viewers she would be playing the ‘guess the gadget’ segment on Wednesday's show.

One concerned fan wrote: “I really hope holly is alright she seemed so excited about guess the gadget yesterday and now shes not on? #ThisMorning.”

Another fan speculated: "So Holly is just having a day off? Something's not right here."

A third viewer commented: "As Holly said she’d be playing guess the gadget yesterday I’m guessing it’s not a planned day off."

A fourth said: "No way is Holly just having a 'well deserved day off', yesterday Phil said him and Holly was playing guess the gadget tomorrow so something has happened."

While mum-of-three Holly has made no mention of her break from This Morning on her Instagram, she did unveil her incredible Christmas decorations the evening before.

On Tuesday night, the star gave fans a rare glimpse at the front of her house after getting it decorated for Christmas.

Holly got into the festive spirit early with the impressive installation that surrounded the front door of her £3m west London home.

Jam-packed with oversized white baubles and a frosted effect on the foliage, full of pine cones, ferns and red holly berries, Holly was clearly delighted with the transformation.

Taking a close-up selfie with part of the decorations to help keep the location of her home concealed, Holly wrote a sweet message using lyrics from Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas, alongside the snap.

"Through the years. We'll always be together. If the Fates allow. Hang a shining star upon the highest bough… The most beautiful door display by @earlyhoursltd."

The Early Hours team shared a different angle of the decorations they'd installed and penned in the caption: "Our team of Early Hours elves had the enormous pleasure of making the lovely @hollywilloughby beautiful home festive today. A snowy scene with frosted seasonal foliage and white glistening baubles."

It's not often we get to take a peek at Holly's lavish abode as the multi-millionaire TV host is pretty private when it comes to the home she shares with her husband Dan Baldwin and their three children Harry, 11, Belle, nine and Chester, five.
