Migraine forces mum-to-be Holly to pull out of shows

Pregnant Holly Willoughby, who pulled out of presenting duties on This Morning because of migraines, is not expected to return to the show tomorrow.

The star was not able to present Dancing On Ice on Sunday after she was advised to rest by doctors.

Willoughby was also absent today from This Morning, which she co-presents with Phillip Schofield. A spokeswoman for the show said she was not expected to front tomorrow's programme.

Schofield told viewers on today's show: "She's having very bad headaches apparently, but we said 'look, it's only telly, put your feet up and relax and when you feel right, come back to work again".'

He added: "I texted her this morning and she texted back saying that she's hoping she might be in tomorrow, she's feeling a little bit better, so that's good..."

Ruth Langsford stepped in for Willoughby on This Morning.

The programme said on its Twitter feed: "We can't say for sure if @hollywills will be back tomorrow but do hope that she's feeling better!"

Coleen Nolan stepped in to co-present Sunday night's skating contest on ITV. Willoughby (30), who is married to TV producer Dan Baldwin whom she met on children's show Ministry Of Mayhem, is expecting her second child in May.

She revealed she was expecting a girl on This Morning last month. The couple's son, Harry, will be two in May.
