'This Morning' presenter Phillip Schofield has said that his co-host Holly Willoughby has not given birth yet but is still "having contractions".

Willoughby went into hospital on Tuesday morning after starting to get contractions a month before her due-date.

In a posting on Twitter this morning, Schofield said: "Just spoke to @hollywills who says thanks so much for all your good wishes."

"Here's the current situation, obviously if the baby arrived over the last few days it would be quite early, so the team around her are balancing when is the best time for her to be born."

"Holly said that she hadn't been in full blown labour since Monday! And though she was having contractions she's as comfortable as can be expected."

"Everyone fine and happy, but the wait goes on for a little bit longer. I'll let you know if I hear anything else :) (sic)"
