London: Hollywood star Gwyneth Paltrow has confirmed she is to reprise her role as substitute teacher Holly Holiday in hit TV musical `Glee`, but refused to give details on when she will appear on screen again.

The 38-year-old actress can`t wait to reprise the role, describing it as the "best job ever", though it is not yet know when her return to the musical drama series will be
broadcast, reported a website.

In her first appearance, Paltrow`s character performed two duets with Matthew Morrison - who plays teacher Will Schuester - and the actor gushed about how much fun he had singing Rihanna`s `Umbrella` and `Singin` in the Rain` with
her.

"Gwyneth Paltrow is a genius. Who knew that she was such a triple threat? Great dancer, great singer, obviously a great actress - I just had the best time.

"We were just having so much fun like, splashing each other, getting each other wet. It was fun!" he said.

Production on `Glee` was halted on Friday when several key cast members fell ill with tonsillitis. Lea Michele, whom plays Rachel Berry, Dianna Argon, who stars as Quinn Fabray, and Kevin McHale, who portrays Artie Abrams, have all been struck down by the throat illness.
