Automatically split polygons

Hello,

I have a shapefile containing thousands of polygon features, including some "donut" features.

I would like to replace each donut feature by 2 adjacent features (basically removing the "hole", but keeping the representation of this "hole"). I've attached a picture to clarify the situation.

One idea would be to split the polygon by a polyline. I can manually do that in Editing mode, but I cannot figure out how to do that using geoprocessing/python

Any help will be appreciated,

Thanks,
Alex
