Comedian David Baddiel trolls Holly Willoughby trends now
The star, 59, pulled apart her now-famous 'Are you okay?' speech which she gave as she opened the show on Monday with Josie Gibson.
As she returned the the daytime programme after two weeks off she began by saying: 'Hello, Firstly, are you okay? I hope so. It feels very strange sat here without Phil.'
She then went on to say she was feeling 'shaken and troubled' after his affair with a much younger runner on This Morning was revealed.
In a scathing tweet in reaction, David wrote: 'When Holly Willoughby said 'Firstly, are you OK?' I genuinely thought she was talking to someone behind camera, before realising that of course she was talking to us, the great British deeply-traumatised by everything's that happened on an ITV morning show public.'

He later suggested he was 'going to start every day with that from now on', asking his followers: 'Firstly, are you ok?
'Sorry, that was an idiotic thing to say. I meant - deep breath - are *you* ok?'
He added: 'The good thing about this is that all your replies about your lives are very nice and interesting. Maybe Holly was on to something.'
Amanda posted a video on Instagram wearing an angelic white ensemble from Me + Em which was similar to the Reiss one worn by Holly, saying: 'Hello, it is Tuesday. Are you OK?'
And, just in case anyone missed the point, she had another pop at Holly on the radio.
When talking about doing the show hungover, the day before, co-host Jamie Theakston, 52, asked her how she was feeling.
She said: 'I got home, got straight into bed with my dog and cat. I got up, cooked the tea and went back to bed again at 8.

Tears: Holly looked visibly emotional as she addressed the cameras with a monologue about her former best friend Phillip
'Right, deep breath. Firstly, are you ok? I hope so.'
She stated it 'feels very strange indeed sitting here without Phil and I imagine that you might have been feeling a lot like I have. Shaken, troubled, let down, worried for the wellbeing of people on all sides of what's been going on and full of questions'.
'All of us at This Morning gave our love and support to someone who was not telling the truth, who acted in a way that they themselves felt they had to resign from ITV and step down from a career that they loved. That is a lot to process'.
She added: 'It's equally hard to see the toll it's taken on their own mental health. I think what unites us all now is a desire to heal for the health and wellbeing of everyone.
'I hope that as we start this new chapter and get back to a place of warmth and magic that the show holds for all of us, we can find strength in each other.
'And from the heart, can I just say thank you for all your kind messages and thank you for being here this morning. Myself, Josie, Dermot, Alison, Craig and every single person that works on this show will continue to work hard every day.'
'I did that thing where you wake up at 2 and you have to talk yourself back into going to sleep.'
Jamie interjected: 'We're worried about your well-being,' while talking to another guest.
Amanda replied: 'I'm OK people, are you OK?' before cackling loudly.
A spokesperson for Amanda told MailOnline: 'Amanda has always made it clear in the past she has no issues with Holly. Today’s video has been taken out of context.'
And Amanda wasn't the only person sticking the boot in to Holly.
Springwatch fans were convinced that presenter Michaela Strachan, 57, was taking a jibe at her expense on Tuesday's show, which is live.
Michaela mimicked Holly's monologue when she made a similar statement following a clip of a fox stealing a blackbird chick from a nest.
Standing alongside co-host Chris Packham, 62, Michaela said: 'Everyone was on the edge of their seats watching that, how is everyone feeling?
'There is a lot to process isn't there? Emotions are all over the place.'
Fans noticed the similarity with Holly's words and took to Twitter to express their surprise.
They wrote: 'Michela Strachan trolling Holly Willoughby on #springwatch was easily the highlight of today.'
