The 58-year-old ITV star revealed as soon as he laid eyes on Holly’s outfit, he rushed to put on an “NHS blue” cotton shirt.
Looking at his 39-year-old co-presenter, he exclaimed: “You went for white!
“You look like a nurse. A very glamorous nurse.”
Gesturing to her white gown, Holly added: “You’d be hard pushed to find a colour not to go with this.”
In a cobalt-blue shirt, Phil pointed out that his top was a sweet tribute to the NHS workers who have worked hard throughout the Covid pandemic.
Holly was dressed in a glamorous white gown by Tory Burch, complete with button-up detailing and an empire waistline.
Pairing the look with nude suede heels and a low ponytail, the sophisticated daytime look was an instant hit with viewers.
One enthusiastic fan swooned: “A serene, sublime, stunning image on our tellys today. It can only be @hollywills. She is wonderful in white. Extra special.”
A second agreed: “Called her an angel yesterday but that description would seem even more appropriate today.”
And a third chimed: “Holly Willoughby looks gorgeous as always loving the dress today and Phil looks good as well.”
Fashionista Gok Wan was similarly impressed by the presenting duo’s styling choices, as he appeared on the show via video call.
Giving Phil and Holly the Gok seal of approval, he swooned: “Phil I love the shirt.
“I think the colour is gorgeous on you!”
