Ruth Langsford and Eamonn Holmes will present the Friday show as well as next week’s editions before the show breaks for Christmas on December 20.   

Holly and Phil won’t be seen again until the programme returns next year on January 6 at the earlier time of 10AM until 12.30PM. 

For her final show of the year, Holly ensured she dressed the part as she slipped into a festive red gown, which she teamed with a thick black waist belt.

Ever-chic, Holly’s red frock featured a square neckline and on-trend ruffle shoulders, while it skimmed over her trim frame and fell to just above her angles. 

The TV host slipped into a classic pair of pointed black stilettos and finished off her look with a slick of red lipstick and her blonde bob styled into edgy waves.  

She captioned the trio of poses on Instagram: ‘Final day of term before we break up for Christmas… so obviously I've dressed as Mrs Santa Claus … today's #hwstyle on @thismorning dress and belt by @suzannahfashion.’

Taking to his Instagram Stories, Phillip shared a video of the pair laughing about a donkey on set during rehearsals for the This Morning nativity.

Their final episode before Christmas came after Phillip was accused of creating a ‘toxic atmosphere’ for his This Morning co-stars, with allegations of ongoing spats with Holly and stand-in hosts Ruth and Eamonn. 

It is claimed eight different ITV presenters have broken their silence regarding Phillip’s attitude.

A report stated the situation behind the scenes at This Morning had become ‘toxic’ in recent months, with employees too scared to speak out publicly for fear of backlash.

An ITV source told The Sun: ‘For so long people have been silenced because they are scared for their job. If they speak out publicly about the atmosphere they fear there could be repercussions.’ 

An insider close to Holly added to the paper: ‘It's true there have been some issues. They're like brothers and sisters – they have ups and downs but love each other.’

The Mail On Sunday revealed relations between Phillip, Ruth and Eamonn are so bad, the couple snubbed the show's Christmas party to avoid him.

The Friday presenters were surprisingly absent last week from the no-expense-spared dinner at a West London restaurant where 23 of their colleagues enjoyed a four-course meal and champagne.

Hitting back at the reports, a spokesperson for ITV said: ‘It's deeply disappointing and unfair for Phillip to be the target of this sort of malicious gossip.

‘Phillip is a much respected broadcaster and colleague and this is absolutely not a description of This Morning that we recognise.

‘Holly and Phil are great friends both on and off screen and are popular among viewers and colleagues alike.’ 

The rift is said to be causing anxiety at YMU, the agency formerly known as James Grant, which represents all four.

Tension with Holly reportedly worsened after the mum-of-three landed the co-host role on last year's I'm A Celebrity while Ant McPartlin recovered from alcohol issues. 

Phillip is said to have suggested to ITV bosses he could take the role and, when rebuffed, he suggested taking This Morning to Australia to film it from there.

Another source told the Mail On Sunday: ‘Phillip seems to hold huge sway at ITV but there is a growing list of people he's worked with over the years who, it's fair to say, are not fans of his… And the cosy, jokey on-screen partnership with Holly is not what it seems.’
