Why is Holly Willoughby not wearing her wedding ring on This Morning?

Eagle-eyed viewers may have noticed that Holly Willoughby isn't wearing her wedding rings at the moment.

As colleague Dr Ranj Singh explained it was important for the public to wash their hands and then moisturise, Holly agreed.

The co-hosts returned to the ITV show earlier today, after Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced emergency lockdown measures for the United Kingdom last night. "But not that long ago, only the other day I came into the studio and everybody was looking at the floor".

Speaking on the show Holly said, "I'm permanently taking my rings off".

He explained: 'On yesterday's show I mentioned one of my fave viral videos, when the Mayor of Georgetown goes to the bathroom and leaves his mic on'.

Unlike the likes of Coronation Street, Emmerdale, Loose Women and Lorraine, which have all halted production amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, This Morning continues to broadcast after making a number of changes.

It isn't the only gaffe that Holly has suffered of late, the star revealing a wardrobe blunder this week after doing her own hair and make-up.

The popular duo explained that the reason they are still working, even though the United Kingdom government called for a lockdown, is that they're considered 'essential staff'.

"The government has classed us as essential workers for the time being, as we are here to answer your questions and inform you on what is happening", Holly added.

Addressing their viewers following Boris" speech on Monday, media personality Phil said: "Lets start off by explaining probably for the first time ever, why we are here today'.

Holly explained, "We are running with skeleton staff from now on and with lots of people working from home and all our regular behind the scenes services cut back to an absolute minimum".
