Holly Willoughby turns 40

Happy Birthday, Holly Willoughby! The iconic TV presenter celebrates her 40th birthday today.

She broke down in tears when she arrived at work to find her This Morning colleagues had organised a small celebration.

Holly's This Morning co-host, Phillip Schofield, filmed the whole thing for Instagram Stories.

She arrived at ITV studios to find her co-workers all lined up, waiting for her.

They began to clap and sing as the TV presenter broke down in tears.

She walked down the corridor, which was decorated with balloons, and joined Phillip in the presenter make-up room.

Before turning to Phillip, she told a colleague, "Awh thank you! I'm just gonna go in here and cry."

When she walked into the room, a massive, '40,' sign had been set up.

She rhetorically asked her co-host, "I’m going to spend all day in tears, aren't I?"

Phillip also brought her to tears on the show when he showed her a pre-recorded poem he performed with Tom Roberts.

This will bring you to tears too.

Holly's birthday outfit

Holly slipped into her birthday dress shortly after and posted a picture on Instagram.

She revealed it's the exact same dress her mother wore on her 40th birthday.

'I remember this day so clearly. It’s a strange thing to reach the age you remember your Mum being!'

'I asked her if she’d kept the dress and of course she had...'
