She was forced to cut her seven-week holiday short by two weeks and fly back to the UK in accordance with air bridge rules ahead of her return to work.

And Holly Willoughby ensured she kept herself busy while self-isolating at home on Saturday, as she shared a snap of herself preparing sushi in her kitchen.

The This Morning presenter, 39, smiled for the camera as she rolled out her sushi tubes, before cutting them up into segments and placing them on a plate.

Holly opted for very light touches of make-up to highlight her radiant complexion and wore her signature blonde locks loose in natural waves.

Later in the day, Holly threw her support behind pal and ITV alum Dermot O’Leary as she reshared his post after he had his wedding ring stolen.

Dermot, 47, made an emotional plea to his followers and friends after a man stole the ring and a crucifix from a locked gym locker while he was in a class.

Holly also posted a picture of the man believed to have stolen Dermot’s treasured possessions as well as the police appeal.

Holly is currently doing her best to recharge her batteries ahead of returning to work after she was forced to cut her family holiday to Portugal short.

Earlier this week, Holly shared a snap of herself donning an aura amethyst crystal which she credited with ‘rockin’ and rechargin” her.

The multi-coloured necklace, which Holly wore with a white vest top, was a gift from her friend and clairvoyant Emma Lucy who said she made it with the star in mind.

Sharing Holly’s photo, she wrote: ‘The amulet was made with your aura in mind – crystal hand charged and programmed in white light for auric protection and magnification as you can learn to do in your own time in my new book “You are a Rainbow”.

‘When we tap into the magic of our energy within and without us – we can truly up vibe our lives and those that we love around us.’

Holly styled her blonde locks into an updo for the snap while she also donned a simple gold necklace.

The handmade necklace, made in conjunction with jeweller Roxanne First, will come in handy for Holly as she prepares to return to work after her holiday was cut short.

Last week it was revealed that Holly was forced to end her seven-week family holiday to go into quarantine so that she can return on time to host This Morning.

The TV presenter had planned to fly home from the Algarve at the end of August for her summer break.

But UK government Covid-19 restrictions mean all passengers returning to Britain from Portugal must self-isolate for 14 days.

As a result, the TV star has flown home a fortnight early and will quarantine with her husband Dan Baldwin and their three children at their London home to be back on screens by September 7.

A source told MailOnline: ‘Holly accepts that she has to go into quarantine and will follow the rules but she isn’t happy losing two weeks from her holiday.

‘The summer break is her chance to re-charge after a hectic period and to spend time with her family. After all the stresses of the pandemic she had been looking forward to relaxing as long as possible.

‘Instead of seven weeks away she has had to make it five – but it’s what she’s had to do to keep the This Morning team safe and to ensure she returns to the show on time.’

A source close to Holly said of the arrangement: ‘Holly isn’t ‘unhappy’ to be returning, but happy to do what is necessary to keep everyone safe’.

The UK government introduced the 14-day quarantine period for travellers to the country on June 8 when a coronavirus spike hit with an infection rate of almost 50 per 100,000 population, one of the highest in Europe.

They flew to Portugal soon after her last appearance on This Morning on July 10 with Eamonn Holmes and his wife Ruth Langsford, both 60, filling in.

Friends say Holly cherishes the summer break as she gets to spend more time with her family away from the commitments of filming ITV’s This Morning.

The strain of presenting during the pandemic showed when Holly penned an emotional farewell from TV last month.

She had continued to present the popular daytime program with Phillip Schofield, 58, working with producers to ensure the show went ahead as normal.

Holly took to Instagram before her summer break to express her thanks to the This Morning team and the viewers who tuned in during lockdown.

She said: ‘Thank you… thank you for staying with us over the last 109 days… When we began this new way of broadcasting, we had no idea how long we would be able to come in, or whether it would be our last time broadcasting from the studio during lockdown.

‘The team have adapted and had plan a, b, c and d in place just in case… Some days we didn’t know If we’d have the content to fill the show, but somehow we always managed it and even had a few laughs along the way.

‘You see us, but we feel that you are there with us, every single show… @thismorning holds a mirror up to life and reflects the mood of what we are all feeling.’

Holly added: ‘I can’t thank our team enough! @martinfrizell1, Emma, all the production who came in.

‘The production team who worked from home, crew, the TM family and fellow presenters who are consistently brilliant, but mostly to @schofe for metaphorically holding my hand and reliably being socially distanced shoulder to shoulder with me…

‘What a strange time… Feeling incredibly grateful… Huge love, thank you again… See you in September.’
