Absent Holly 'might be in labour'

This Morning host Holly Willoughby missed Tuesday's show - with co-host Phillip Schofield saying she "may or may not" be in labour.

The heavily-pregnant star, who was due to go on maternity leave on Thursday, was replaced by stand-in Jenni Falconer.

Schofield told viewers: "The first thing this morning I got a phone call from Holly saying that she thought she might be in labour, and as the morning has progressed - not entirely sure - so as it stands at the moment, Holly may or may not be in labour. But best not here, we thought."

Later on in the ITV1 show, Schofield read out a text from Willoughby which said she was "currently bouncing on a birthing ball eating breakfast".

Willoughby married TV producer Dan Baldwin, who she met on children's show Ministry Of Mayhem, in West Sussex in August 2007.

She gave birth to her first child, a boy named Harry, in May 2009 and told viewers in January she was expecting a baby girl.
