Holly Willoughby and Keith Lemon took a walk down memory lane on Tuesday as they shared and incredible throwback snap of them together with Spice Girls legend Emma Bunton.
Keith was the first to share the image as he uploaded it to Instagram amid a collection of other photos from the past.

He captioned the image – which showed Emma, Holly and himself each flashing beaming smiles – with the words: “A blonde nest”.
And he added that the trio were: “Doing laughing”.
Clearly touched by the photo herself, Holly was quick to re-publish the same image to her own Instagram Stories along with a caption stating: “Aww”.
For 12 years, Holly and Keith worked together on wacky late night game show Celebrity Juice – which Emma Bunton has been a guest on no less than seven times so far.

Holly served as a team captain on the show from 2008 until 2020 – across the first 23 seasons of the series – before shocking fans by quitting last year.
Announcing her decision to walk away from the series, Holly posted a lengthy message on social media.
She declared: “Thank you @celebjuiceofficial for 12 years of fantastic chaos… I can’t quite believe what we’ve done and how quick that time has gone. Thank you to you all for watching.”
She went on to thank the crew that worked on the show, and added: “All good things must come to an end and nothing lasts forever… It’s time for me to hand over my team captain seat to some lucky lucky person… whoever that is, know you are about to get one of the best jobs in telly working with one of comedies finest… @keithlemon”.
Following a gushing statement about the fun she’d had on the show, she concluded: “Thank you for making me laugh for twelve years… I’ll be back as a guest and just to make sure someone is keeping you in check… if I don’t see you through a week or next week or the week after… know you are always in my heart.”
Five months after the revelation Holly was leaving, Keith explained why his co-star had decided to quit the show.
He told The Sun in October last year that Holly had called him personally to announce her decision.
He explained: “I said, ‘You’re going to tell me you’re leaving, aren’t you?’ and she said, ‘Yes, it’s been 12 great years but I want to spend time with the family’.”
He added: “I’m gutted, she was like my TV sister. She’s welcome back any time. I’ll properly miss her.”
