Sharing an old snap of the pair on the show, she wrote: “Happy @thismorning anniversary @schofe … 10 years of pure joy and laughter… so lucky to share a sofa with you 💕.”

And Phil shared a post of his own, which showed the pair sat in their pyjamas in the This Morning studio.

He gushed: “Happy 10th telly anniversary @holywills @thismorning lots of love bestie 😘😘.”

The post comes after Phil called Holly the “sister he never had”.

The Cube host said he and Holly trust each other with their lives in a touching interview revealing their incredible bond.

The presenting duo – who spent the summer holidays together on joint family trips – had a nervous launch of their This Morning partnership in 2009.

But listing the qualities of his best friend, Phillip, 57, said: “For me in Holly, it’s someone I trust entirely and completely and someone who trusts me, not just on the telly but, you know, with our lives.

“I don’t think there’s anything that we don’t know about each other – we know each other’s strengths and each other’s weaknesses.

“If one is feeling down, the other one will be there to prop them up and make sure they’re OK.”

He added: “She’s like the sister I never had.

“I adore my brother, but I never had a sister and Holly is like my younger sister and that’s a lovely position to be in.”

Holly, 38, had worked with Phil on Dancing On Ice before moving to join him on This Morning back in 2009.

The beloved presenter said she had a nervy start to her now 10-year tenure on the ITV show – but felt comforted by her colleague.

The co-hosts even took their families on a shared holiday over the summer

She said of her first episode that she was: “So, so nervous, and holding on to Phil for dear life.

“I was just scared, scared, scared.

“I’d watched This Morning as a fan for many years before doing it, I didn’t want to be the one to mess it up.

“I didn’t want to let everyone down.

“But luckily 10 years later I’m still there.”
