Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby have unexpectedly reunited in a new Netflix documentary.
The former This Morning presenter featured in the three-part documentary, Who Killed Jill Dando?
The brief clip shown in the Netflix programme is from an episode of This Morning which aired last year.
The introduction from Holly and Phillip came ahead of an interview with investigative journalist Mark Williams-Thomas to mark the 23rd anniversary of Jill’s death.
The clip is short but sees Holly address the camera as she says: “What happened that morning remains a mystery, the crime unsolved, her killer never held to justice.”

Holly and Phillip’s relationship reportedly broke down following his departure from This Morning.
The dad-of-two issued an apology to his pal and colleagues after lying to them about having an affair with a younger male co-star.
It was also alleged that the duo were “no longer speaking” following Phillip’s admission.
“I’ve lost my best friend. I let her down (Holly). I let that entire show down. I let the viewers down,” Phillip shared at the time.

“Holly did not know (about the romance). And she was one of the first texts that I sent to say, ‘I am so, so sorry that I lied to you’.”
The 61-year-old said Holly never replied to his texts before admitting they were “barely speaking”.
He went on: “I utterly adore Holly but we didn’t talk about this. I love Holly and I get it. That was a shock (to read). I texted her and said, ‘Have you heard about this?’. And she said, ‘Yeah, I think the story’s been killed, I think it’s gone, it’s not going to run’. But it did, the next day.
“The last time we had a conversation was when I texted Holly and said, ‘Don’t reply,’ — this was after the statement last week (defending This Morning from accusations of toxicity) ‘Don’t reply, you’re probably not allowed to. But I am deeply, deeply sorry that I lied to you’.”
Holly has never publicly addressed whether she has spoken to Phillip since he admitted to lying, but upon her return to This Morning, she told viewers it was “strange” to present the show without her friend by her side.
Phillip has kept a low profile since cutting ties with ITV, but more recently, he was spotted out with his wife, Steph.
Holly has continued to present This Morning and has been joined by several guest presenters including Alison Hammond, Craig Doyle and Josie Gibson.
