This Morning’s Holly Willoughby is one of TV’s hardest working stars – but that doesn’t mean she doesn’t know how to let her hair down in absolute style.
Holly Willoughby is one of TV’s hardest workers – and as it turns out, one of the hardest partiers too.
The 40-year-old star has amassed millions of fans thanks to her work over the years, becoming a near ever-present face on TV thanks to This Morning, Dancing On Ice, Celebrity Juice and latest series, Take Off with Bradley Walsh.
This has since expanded to ranges with home band Dunelm, fashion deals with Marks and Spencer and now her own lifestyle brand, Wylde Moon.
But Holly’s unstoppable energy extends beyond her work, balancing a home life with three children – Harry, 11, Belle, nine, and Chester, six – and also making every second count when she’s got some downtime.
In fact, she’s gathered quite the reputation as the biggest party girl on a good night – even outdrinking her co-workers in a quest for a good time.
Earlier this week, Kelly Brook said that Holly was wild and could easily beat rapper Snoop Dogg when it comes to partying.
“Yeah, they’re on par,” Kelly told Heart Radio. “Holly would out drink Snoop no question. She’s good fun on a night out.”
This matches what Alison Hammond said in 2018, with her fellow This Morning star admitting she would sneak off home during nights out because she couldn’t keep up with Holly and Phillip Schofield.
“Nights out with them are brilliant – they love their drink!” Alison told Closer. “We’ve been on nights out with them where I have taken myself to bed at 2am, then found out the next day that Holly hasn’t even been to sleep!”
Even Piers Morgan attested to her can-do attitude in the name of a good time, and told Heat in 2019: “If I go to a party and Holly Willoughby is there, you know your liver is in for a caning, and you could end up in a career-ending situation.
“She’s like a female version of all the members of Led Zeppelin combined.”
Keith Lemon, who she co-starred with for years on Celebrity Juice, said he couldn’t keep up with her.
Viewers were clued in to her ability to remain professional even after a hard night out back in 2016, when she and Phillip appeared on the This Morning sofa still wearing clothes from the night before after a night out at the NTAs.
Celebrating their latest win, Phillip and Holly had ended up heading to several after parties before ending up with Ant and Dec at one of their Chiswick homes playing drinking games.Rather than be deterred with the effects of a hangover, Holly joked she was more upset that the piccalilli she had in a sandwich had spilled and ruined her beautiful white dress.
The duo later pretended to pass out on the sofa – kicking off a tradition that followed for two more years.
The pair have also been known to knock back drinks live on air in the name of the job – with several drinks segments allowing them to sample wine and cocktails before midday.
While in Australia for I’m A Celebrity back in 2018, Holly called into This Morning in the middle of the afterparty feeling merry as she cheersed her friends back home.
Holly cut her teeth in her ability to party since being a presenter from the age of 19 – where she admitted she would present shows like ITV kids show Ministry of Mayhem on Saturday morning having not slept the night before.
Despite her ability to match rockstars when it comes to a good time, Holly is now more focused than ever on wellbeing and health – with her latest project Wylde Moon proving that she’s all about self-care.
When she has the time for it though with all her other commitments…. We have no idea!
Though if she can tell us the secrets to half her energy, we would be grateful.
