Holly Willoughby sent This Morning fans into a viewing frenzy when she bought her dad to work today.

The daytime TV presenter and all-round good egg proved her dedication to family on This Morning when she happily shared a photograph of herself working alongside her dad, flip reversing the traditional Take Your Kids To Work Day.

Unsurprisingly, Holly’s good genes run in the family and people could not contain their excitement.

Holly and her dad were pictured together in Birmingham today for a very special edition of This Morning, hosted live from the NEC.

Joined by some This Morning stalwarts, including Phil Vickery and Gino D’Campo, Phil and Holly looked excited to be presenting in front of a huge, adoring crowd.

You can watch a clip from ITV below:

Apparently, people were particularly keen to see Mr. Willoughby in attendance, at the Everest Home Improvements stand.

Holly shared a family portrait, captioning the snap:

Having a fab day at @thismorning @tmliveevent in Birmingham and look whose here with me! Papa Willoughby is on the @everesthomeimprovements #everest stage… talk about worlds collide! #takeyourdadtoworkday #tmlive xxx


Observers offered their – potentially unwanted – approvals, writing: “ERM HOLLY… your Dads a fox…!” and “He looks too young to be your dad!!”

The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree… Just look at those power poses.
