This Morning fans fear Holly Willoughby has quit show as she takes the week off and sends sick note via her cat

THIS Morning fans are concerned Holly Willoughby has quit the show as she revealed she was sick for the third day in the row.

The 40-year-old sent a sick note today via her cat Bluebell, saying she hoped she would be back by Monday, but was currently still suffering from a tummy bug.

The post read:  “Good morning… My name is Bluebell, sadly Holly won’t be able to come out to play on @thismorning today as she is still under the weather… seriously what I’ve witnessed over the last 48 hours you wouldn’t want her there…

“I’m sure she’ll be back on Monday… Honestly I’m sick of the sight of her! 😽.”

But viewers aren’t so convinced she’s just got a bug and took to Twitter to speculate on her absence.

One person wrote: “Apparently Holly is leaving to pursue other things…#ThisMorning.”

A second added: “Holly’s off again, must be more than a tummy bug. #ThisMorning Face with rolling eyes.”

While a third wrote: “So Holly is still poorly…? We’ve heard this story before… #ThisMorning Rolling on the floor laughing.”

Fans also noted that Holly has been busy posting about her other venture – her site Wylde Moon – despite being too ill to present.

Josie Gibson has stepped in for Holly this week alongside Phillip Schofield – and has won rave reviews.

Earlier this year, The Sun revealed how Holly had been locked in secret crisis talks with ITV about her future on the show.

The popular presenter remains at war with her former management company who are demanding an estimated £200,000 a year of the star's new ITV daytime deal.

A source said at the time: "She loves This Morning, and really doesn't want to leave. She is committed to the show, but has been given no choice but to discuss her options moving forwards.

"She wants to stand up for women, and won't roll over when it comes to unfair renegotiations.

"She has spoken to ITV execs and explained the situation – in essence, she said she'd rather leave the show than let YMU take such a high percentage of her earnings, when they aren’t entitled to it.

"Obviously she adores Phillip, and ITV don't want her going anywhere, so they're pulling out all the stops to make sure this gets resolved as amicably as possible."
