Holly chimes in, 'It doesn't feel like 10 years. It’s gone super-duper fast, but it's been so amazing.'

'The best mark I’ve got of that time is that it’s the same age as Harry.'

She explains, 'So, as I've watched him grow, I know how long I've been on This Morning...'

'So that's always a visual reminder of how long I've been there.'

The first show

The presenting duo look back at the very first show they presented together.

Holly admits she was, 'so, so nervous and holding on to Phil for dear life - I was just scared, scared, scared.'

She explains further, 'I’d watched This Morning as a fan for many years before doing it...'

'I didn't want to be the one to mess it up, I didn't want to let everyone down...'

'But luckily 10 years later I'm still there.'

While Phil admits, 'I was nervous for her because I wanted her to have a good time and enjoy the experience.'

'I wanted to make sure she was okay and felt comfortable and happy...'

'But the minute she started it was quite obvious that we were going to have a ball.'

Memories

Phil and Holly are always taking off on holidays together with their respective families.

He laughs as he recalls a time when they got lost in the Portugese woodlands.

'It was pitch black and we were using our phones as torches.'

He explains what happened:

'We were at a restaurant and Holly said, 'This is quite close to our house so we will walk back and there’s a beautiful sort of natural park land, with fields and paths.''

'And she got us lost... We were a little worse for wear and we were essentially lost in the Portugese woodlands..'

'It was absolutely hilarious and so this year, we did the same walk but in the daytime...'

'And we went back to Holly’s after lunch and she said, 'Don’t worry, I know the way now, I’m not going to get us lost.''

Holly admits she loves going on holidays with Phil, 'it's different because all of our families are together...'

'Everyone really likes spending time with him as well because they know Mummy goes to work with him so it's nice for them.'

'You know they’ve grown up seeing him loads. I think there isn't one stand out memory it's just nice, real time together.'

Here's to 10 more years of these legends on our TV screens!
