Phillip Schofield certainly celebrated his birthday in style. And it almost goes without saying that his co-host Holly Willoughby was there to join in the fun!
She repeated a dress we spotted her wearing on This Morning back in January for the occasion. It’s from L.K. Bennett and we love the striking floral print and flattering midi length. The frill neckline, gathered shoulders and ruffle hem are all nice little touches too.
Holly has a natural talent for selling out clothes so we’re pleasantly surprised that there’s one size left of this dress over at John Lewis & Partners, AND it’s even now reduced in the sale. Click (right) to buy it, then dress yours up with heels for evening or add trainers when the sun is shining.
But if you can’t see your size, check out the four floral frocks we’ve found for you at the likes of PrettyLittleThing, Boohoo and & Other Stories. Happy shopping!

‘Hello Phil, I’m coming to wish you Happy April Fool’s Day, which I happen to hear is also your birthday.

Open-mouthed, Phil gushed: ‘That’s the best present ever, oh my gosh that’s fabulous.’
Holly: ‘I know you don’t like a fuss but the producers told me “we’ve got this message from Dame Judi Dench, shall we show it” and I said “of course.”’
