Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield revealed This Morning has forked out on a forest
The show has saved the piece of woodland from ever being built on

This Morning co-hosts Phillip Schofield and Holly revealed the programme bought a forest as part of a drive to “go green” and stop the woodland from ever being built on.

The presenting pair and the show’s crew will head to their forest – which is in a secret location – later this month to present an episode of the programme, and Holly joked they could host the show in costume.

She said: “We’ll have to get Maid Marian and Robin Hood outfits.”

And Phil and Holly are keen to go up a tree when they visit the forest.

Holly said: “I’d love that. Hug a few tress, I won’t let go.”

Phil added: “Absolutely, yes. I’m definitely up for that [going in a tree], it’s the Robin Hood outfit I’m slightly less keen on, but there you go.”

Hundreds of trees, bugs and wildlife have been saved as a result of the show’s “biggest ever project”.

Phil explained: “COVID has made us all appreciate the natural world all around us, and we thought we would like to continue that newfound appreciation by doing our little bit to help the planet.”

TV presenter Julia Bradbury admitted the forest, which is home to deer, rabbits, and other wildlife, as well as a number of different plants and flowers, is part of the show’s plan to “really, really go green”.

Presenting a segment from the woodland on today’s episode, she said: “It’s a pine forest, essentially.

“But the plan over the next few years is to plant more trees and increase the biodiversity here as well.

“We’ve got foxgloves and we’ve got bluebells that will be here in season.


“There are muntjac deer around here, there are rabbits, there are field mice, there are all sorts of important creatures.

“This forest is going to help sustain them and protect them for years to come.

“It lies at the heart of the This Morning plans to really, really go green.”
