They’ve been getting viewers excited about the relaxing of lockdown restrictions, which means people can now meet in groups of six outdoors. 

But Holly Willoughby, 40, and Phillip Schofield, 59, dashed back inside This Morning’s studio on Monday after enduring freezing temperatures for an outdoor picnic segment.

The co-hosts were visibly cold as they rushed through the show’s goodbye, which saw them wrapped up while sitting amidst an al fresco set up, and didn’t want for cameras to stop rolling before they abandoned their positions to head indoors.

Holly and Phil were outside to present a segment on picnic items, but forgot it’s actually still extremely cold.

After moaning how cold she was, Holly grabbed one of the blankets to put on her bare legs.

As gusts of wind blasted them with shots of freezing air, Phil could be seen with his hands between his legs in an attempt to keep them warm.

They duo then ended the show with the quickest ‘goodbye’ ever before sprinting back into the building.

It comes after Phil admitted he has been feeling anxious about Britain’s lockdown restrictions lifting.

The TV presenter said he is not scared of the virus but is now used to not going out after people have been living under restrictions since last March.

Phil made the admission during Thursday’s This Morning as counsellor Sian Williams called for viewers to phone in if they had worries about lockdown coming to an end. 

Sian said: ‘Some people will perhaps be feeling a little bit of anxiety about lockdown easing,’ to which Phil replied: ‘I am! I was saying to Gok [Wan].

‘Now, Gok is Mr Party and he is going to take me under his wing and look after me. I was fine until maybe about three months ago and then I feel like I’ve jumped off the rails a little bit.’ 

‘You lose momentum and you get a bit scared. It’s not that I’m scared about the virus, it’s just the fact that I’m not used to going out.’ 

‘Just think where your brain’s been for the past year,’ Sian offered, before adding tha i has been in a ‘constant threat and danger.’

Lockdown restrictions eased on April 12 when outdoor venues, gyms, hairdressers and salons and other business deemed non-essential were all reopened their doors.

Sports can start to return from May 17, although venues will need to work on reduced capacities.

Up to 30 people can go to weddings from the same date, but are stuck at that number until the next phase of the roadmap.

Only at June 21 will all legal limits on social contact go, and the remaining elements of the hospitality sector be allowed to open. 

Prime Minister Boris Johnson stressed that he is being driven by ‘data not dates’ and the timeline is not guaranteed. 

He said: 'You lose momentum and you get a bit scared. It's not that I'm scared about the virus, it's just the fact that I'm not used to going out'
