Holly Willoughby first appeared on our screens in 2000 presenting S Club TV. She was involved in numerous presenting jobs but the most memorable being children’s TV presenter on action packed, fun filled show Ministry Of Mayhem. She endured years of ‘pieing’ and antics alongside everyones favourite magician and presenter Stephen Mulhern and of course Michael Underwood.
But leaving the days of ITV2‘s the Xtra Factor and Children’s TV behind Holly joined Philip Schofield for a much more ‘proper’ and sophisticated role in ITV’s This Morning replacing Fern Britton. Here, the nation took a shine to her welcoming eyes, calming voice and continuous press attention to her ‘real sized’ body.
However, turning away from the morning show where Holly is seen interviewing the Prime minister, looking at catwalks and tasting the latest healthy foods and fast forward to 10pm on a thursday night to ITV2’s Celebrity Juice. Here Holly is sat alongside newly appointed Kelly Brook and of course the ever so crude Keith Lemon- who we all either hate or love for his erotic and questionable humour.
Keith Lemon referrers to Holly as ‘Holly Willough-booby’ and often mocks her in a humerous way. However, this is where we get to see a different side to Holly who engages in Lemon’s crude jokes and almost rude behaviour.
On paper it should not work. Someone who is almost the face of daytime TV and not forgetting a mum of two can not surely also be a part of such a controversial show like Celebrity Juice. However it does, and it seems Holly is perfect for both roles and being herself in both really does work.
In a documentary recently about CiTV Michael Underwood former co presenter on MoM said, ‘Celeb Juice shows the real Holly’, however on the show she is still just as admirable and lovely as she is when she presents during the day on This Morning.
Holly Willoughby’s different roles on TV shows how talented she is and how anyone can succeed by just being themselves,- it may also help if you’re easy on the eye like Holly! There needs to be more positive role models such as Holly around.
