Holly Willoughby ‘smashed’ as she and Phillip Schofield accept award for Daytime Show

Fans thought Holly and Phil had “been on the gin” before their win on the NTA stage, and Holly was even seen “leaning” on her co-host during their speech

NTA viewers reckon Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield may have been enjoying the booze a little early at the awards.

The presenting pair headed up to accept their award for Best Daytime Show for This Morning, and Holly was seen leaning on her co-presenter Phillip Schofield as she tried to give their speech.

She said: “It’s 30 years and the fact that our show has been on for 30 years and still you vote and enjoy the show means everything to us because without you the show wouldn’t be possible.

“Eamonn and Ruth, we adore you, our experts…”

She also thanked her stand in host Rochelle Humes for filling for her while she co-hosted I’m A Celebrity over the winter months.

But fans were mainly concerned that she was a little hammered, and took to social media to share their worries.

One said: “Holly Willoughby is always smashed at the NTA’s swear down.”

Another joked: “the banter with holly and phil getting drunk and always winning is hilarious # ntas” 

A third added: “The only reason we want this morning to win an #NTA is so that we can see holly and Phil still pissed tomorrow morning on the tele !”

Another fan added: “Holly and Phil better still be drunk when this morning comes on tomorrow, no excuse now @ Schofe @ hollywills” 

And a fifth joked: “Please could someone send me Snapchats of Phil and Holly tomorrow Judging by Phils Snapchat, he’s already pissed… Drinking Tequila in the audience — watching The National Television Awards”

Allison Hammond also interrupted their speech to make sure she was mentioned in the thank yous, after Holly and Phil shared their love for one another in their speech.

The pair said they loved working together every day and certainly they will love the afterparty as well.
