Willoughby in labour says Schofield
Holly Willoughby has gone into labour, according to her This Morning co-host Phillip Schofield.
The star missed the ITV1 show this morning amid confusion over whether she was about to give birth.
Phillip shared the news on his Twitter feed after getting a text from her husband, TV producer Dan Baldwin.
He said: "Latest news is that @hollywills is in labour."
The heavily pregnant star, who was due to go on maternity leave on Thursday, was replaced today by stand-in Jenni Falconer.
During the programme, Phillip 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."
Holly married Dan, 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.
