Holly’s full message read: “Thank you… thank you for staying with us over the last 109 days… When we began this new way of broadcasting, we had no idea how long we would be able to come in, or whether it would be our last time broadcasting from the studio during lockdown.
“The team have adapted and had plan a, b, c and d in place just in case… Some days we didn’t know If we’d have the content to fill the show, but somehow we always managed it and even had a few laughs along the way.
“You see us, but we feel that you are there with us, every single show… @thismorning holds a mirror up to life and reflects the mood of what we are all feeling.
“I can’t thank our team enough! @martinfrizell1, Emma, all the production who came in. The production team who worked from home, crew, the TM family and fellow presenters who are consistently brilliant, but mostly to @schofe for metaphorically holding my hand and reliably being socially distanced shoulder to shoulder with me.
“What a strange time… Feeling incredibly grateful … Huge love, thank you again… See you in September.”
