Holly Willoughby to juggle new baby and This Morning

Dancing On Ice star takes on TV presenting job number three - just months after giving birth

Holly Willoughby is competing with Myleene Klass for the title of busiest celeb mum. Holly only had her baby Harry in May but already she’s lined up presenting work on The Xtra Factor and Dancing On Ice, is designing clothes for new fashion site very.co.uk and now she’s going to be the ‘new’ Fern Britton on This Morning.


After months of speculation about who would share centre-stage with Phillip Schofield and replace Fern, it was announced that 28-year-old Holly would be starting the gruelling 5-mornings-a-week TV job in September, when Harry will be just 4 months old.

However, as we reported last month, Holly is no stranger to juggling her new life as a mum with her old life as a TV star. She returned to her screen duties on The Xtra Factor just six weeks after giving birth.


Holly allegedly beat some big name stars (including Davina McCall, Fiona Phillips and super-mum Myleene Klass) to win a seat on the sofa with Phillip. Let’s just hope Harry doesn’t give her too many sleepless nights and bags under the eyes!
