Holly Willoughby has been messaging This Morning co-host Phillip Schofield while I’m A Celebrity is on air.
Phillip revealed that he was chatting to his close pal on Monday night’s show when she wasn’t on our screens.
She sent the messages to a cute WhatsApp group which includes Holly, Phil and presumably her new co-host Dec Donnelly.
Proud Phil admitted that he knows Holly is now feeling "relaxed" in her new role because she can chat to him in the middle of the live show.
He said: "I know she’s relaxed. We have a little WhatsApp group and she was silent on the first day. I thought she was a bit nervous.

He added: "She was texting during the show last night. She’s chilled now."
Ferne McCann, who was presenting the I’m A Celebrity segment on This Morning, asked Phil how he was feeling ahead of Holly’s debut.
Phillip said: "We were all on the edge of our seats. ‘Hope this is okay’. Gradually we started to think ‘yeah she is okay’.
He also poked fun at Holly after she got a fright while filming a behind-the-scenes video.

She got a fright from a fly
Holly was showing This Morning viewers where the crew hang out when they are not in the middle of the jungle and got a nasty surprise when she opened her trailer door.
"Get out, get out," screamed Holly as she flapped around and tried to avoid the jungle critter.
Phil said: "Well you might be wondering what that hideous beast was that frightened her so badly. The answer is – a fly."
Ferne explained that the fly had actually been "shooed in" by prankster Dec.
