Holly Willoughby has surprised her This Morning co-star Phillip Schofield with a homemade birthday cake by her children.

Phil is celebrating his 59th birthday today, Thursday 1 April.

Holly, 40 , who recently embraced the sunshine and ditched her high heels after a painful injury, took to her Instagram feed to share several photos of Phil in the makeup room holding a small wooden slab that had "Holly's Jolly" written on it while the cake rested on top.

TV presenter Phillip appeared overcome with emotion as he held up the cake while smiling at who might've been Holly in the background.

The star wore a white shirt with a blue patterned design all over it as he blew out the three candles resting on the cake, before then bursting out into laughter.

It's no secret that Holly and Phillip are close friends both on and off the This Morning show as she helped him come to terms with his sexuality last year.

Promoting his memoir Life's What You Make It, Phil opened up on their unbreakable bond as he told Chris Evans: "Holly has been astonishing.

"Literally, the best mate… She's serene and calming and sensible and balanced. Not just for me but also for [his wife] Steph."

Chris became emotional himself as he told Phillip that he didn't recognise him the last time they met because of his plummeting weight.

He said: "Holly gave me a look and I thought – hmm – something's going on here – you looked like a little old man, because there was nothing of you."

Phillip emotionally responded: "You disappear inside yourself, and that's when you're lost. All you're doing is thinking about whatever it is that's on your mind."
