HOLLY Willoughby was left in hysterics after a tough few weeks when she dropped an X-rated joke at her new This Morning co-host Craig Doyle.
The TV presenter, 42, was in tears on Monday as she released a statement about Phillip Schofield's affair scandal.
But today, she turned her frown upside down and shared a laugh with her Irish colleague on their second day of filming together.
At the top of the show, Craig said he was looking forward to being back in Ireland this weekend to see his four-legged companion.
"We all get giddy about seeing the dog," said Craig.
Holly replied: "Well, your dog does particularly love you. Look at this greeting Craig's dog gave him when he come home."

The clip – which played Donny Osmond's Puppy Love over the top – showed Craig's pooch jumping into his arms.
Craig said: "If I could jump on him I would, it's just easier the other way around."
Holly added: "It's just the sweetest thing. Look at the tail!
"I think if you had a tail, you'd be wagging."

Craig cheekily replied: "My tail is wagging", before the pair launched into hysterics.
Holly then gave Craig a slap on the arm as if to tell him off for his cheeky innuendo, adding: "Well, there you go. That's a very happy dog."
Viewers enjoyed the light-hearted moment, with one fan writing: "Love Holly and Craig…am I the only one seeing the chemistry."
Someone else added: "Holly to Craig: 'if you had a tail, you would wag it'… eh… You don’t know, he might already be able to do it."
Another commented: "Holly having a laugh with Craig."
Alison Hammond and Dermot O'Leary return for Friday's This Morning tomorrow while Holly begins her three-day weekend.
