Holly Willoughby admits she hasn’t finished reading Phillip Schofield’s book

Holly Willoughby has admitted that she's yet to finish best pal and This Morning co-host Phillip Schofield 's new autobiography.

Phillip, 57, appeared on Lorraine on Thursday to promote his first book Life's What You Make, where the TV star bravely discuss the depths of his despair as he grappled with his sexuality.

In the book, Phillip speaks of the moment he told Holly, 39, that he was gay before she joined him on the This Morning sofa to interview him when he came out in February.

Phillip described Holly as his "rock" and told Lorraine that he "wouldn't have been able to do it without her".

As the interview came to an end, Lorraine crossed over to the This Morning studio to ask a lonely Holly what was coming up on the show.

Holly, who is usually joined by Phillip for the handover segment, said: "Can you send him back over now please, Lorraine."

Lorraine quickly added: "Holly you have been such a good friend to Phillip. The book is brilliant."

Phillip interrupted: "She is yet to read the book yet."

Holly confirmed: "No, I haven't read my bit yet.

"I'm keeping it for half term."

Phillip and Holly enjoy one of the tightest bonds on television.

The news of Phil's secret struggle with his sexuality came as a surprise to many given his 27-year marriage to wife Stephanie Lowe, something Phil acknowledged in his moving Instagram statement earlier this year.

Admitting the situation had caused 'heart-breaking conversations' at home, he revealed that Holly had been a source of support throughout.

"My friends are the best, especially Holly, who has been so kind and wise – and who has hugged me as I sobbed on her shoulder," Phil wrote.

The pair , who first worked together on Dancing On Ice back in 2006, were forced to defend their friendship previously but the pair are closer then ever.

Discussing the rumours, Phillip told Lorraine: "Holly and I couldn't have been closer at the time when all the stories were going around.

"She was one of the first people I told."

Phillip later joined Holly in the This Morning studio to present the latest edition of the ITV daytime show.

The dynamic duo have presented the show together since 2009.

Lorraine airs weekdays on ITV at 9am
