Meeting Phillip for first time was scary: Willoughby

By Lucy Mapstone

Holly Willoughby has admitted being "scared" of her This Morning co-host Phillip Schofield when she first met him years ago.

The TV presenter (36) said she used to watch Schofield (55) presenting children's TV programmes when she was younger, and that led to her nerves as an adult.

Willoughby told ITV's The Jonathan Ross Show: "We met on Dancing On Ice, rink-side would you believe. I'd obviously watched him on the telly lots, he was in the Broom Cupboard, he was my children's TV presenter that I used to watch.

"I was a bit scared when I first met him, but that changed very quickly when I realised he was basically me in the male form."
