In an advert for the popular duo’s return, the voiceover can be heard saying: ‘First there was Clover, then there was Luna – and we can now reveal, there’s a brand new pup to greet Holly and Phil when they return on Monday!

‘Meet This Morning’s new puppy!’

As if fans weren’t already excited enough about the pair’s return…

This Morning’s new furry co-star comes after the stars had to say an emotional goodbye to much-loved pup Luna in January as she went to start her training as a guide dog.
