Holly Willoughby shared a sneaky photo with Keith Lemon as she wished him a happy birthday.
Keys-of-three, 40, Keith’s celebrity juice show left as team captain last year, leaving him with a “jolt” and uncertainty over who to replace him with.
The comedian admitted to feeling depressed by the news and said that it was always difficult when someone left the show.
Holly starred in the hit series for 12 years and left soon after the release of her friend Farne Cotton.
She cited a desire to spend more time with her children and her husband Dan Baldwin.
But this morning remained loyal to Keith – aka Leah Francis – who turned 48 yesterday.
Sharing a picture from their climax together, Holly said, “Happy birthday gorgeous man … I love you! @Keithlemon It’s your Birfday !!!! «
And Keith replied, “Fank you Holly! I love you immediately! I miss you xxx”
Hawley and Fern were eventually replaced by Emily Attack and Laura Whitmore.
Meanwhile, Holly – Harry, 11, Belle, 9 and Chester, 6 to Mum – has become one of the UK’s most successful TV producers.
