Willoughby to present This Morning

FORMER Horsham schoolgirl Holly Willoughby has landed her dream job as presenter of ITV's This Morning.

The former Collyer's College student will join co-host Phillip Schofield on the show after long-standing Fearn Britton announced she was going to leave.

Willoughby, 28, was born in Brighton but lived in Woodmancote and attended Burgess Hill School for Girls and Collyers College in Horsham.

"This Morning has always been the ultimate dream job for me. To spend my days sat next to Phil on the sofa just makes it that bit extra special," said Holly.

"Now I just can't wait for it all to start."

She will now start her new role in September and has already worked with Schofield as co-host on Dancing on Ice.
