Holly Willoughby is what many may consider to be the nation’s sweetheart, however her most recent secret will certainly raise a few eyebrows, after admitting she has a strange habit in the bedroom. Of course, we see her regularly make hilarious innuendos with her on-screen partner Philip Schofield on This Morning; but did we really expect her to come out with this huge confession? Definitely not.
30 years of innuendos on This Morning!
This Morning marked its 30th birthday today, so the show showed a compilation of some of the show’s most cheeky innuendos as part of a showreel. Aside from Holly and Phil’s best bits, there were also appearances from the likes of Fern Britton and Ruth Langsford, on occasions when they completely lost their composure on air.
Some of the best clips included Fern’s hilarious ‘dunking beef’ moment which happened back in 2008 and has certainly gone down in This Morning history. During a cooking segment of the show, Fern turned to Phil and said: “So… you don’t mind dunking a bit of beef, do you?”
Another one of the most hilarious moments was the time Holly co-hosted alongside Ben Shepherd and she made the ‘Welly wang’ comment – but of course, it didn’t quite come out like that, leaving the entire nation in fits of giggles.
Those watching at home were extremely entertained by the footage and took to Twitter to write up their thoughts:
One user wrote: “Crying with laughter at #30yearsofinnuendos #ThisMorning.” while another said: “OMG I’m in tears laughing at the segment of #Innuendo on @thismorning”
Another commented: “#ThisMorning has me crying with laughter thanks for that it’s really cheered me up.”
There were also many serious montages thrown in from over the years, including Judy Finnegan’s on-air breakdown after Princess Diana’s death and interviews of some of the victims of the Manchester terrorist attack.
After the footage came to an end, Phil very seriously said: “Thank you to everyone who has trusted their story with us.”
There were many who found the clips heart-breaking to watch:
“#ThisMorning has me in tears.” one user wrote. “I’m in floods of tears here #ThisMorning.” went on to add, while TV personality Lizzie Cundy also tweeted: “In tears watching the serious side of This morning such incredible tv @thismorning #ThisMorning @itv.”
Holly’s shocking bedroom confession
So, we know that Holly can be slightly cheeky on screen, but one huge confession has certainly shocked many fans. The 37-year-old has recently let the public in on her goings-on in the bedroom.
Back in 2012, she stated that feeling attractive is really important to her. “I like to feel (good) when I’m going out or on a dinner date with my husband, and my hair’s a big part of that.” she said. “Getting it right is like putting on a dress or a pair of heels.”
She stated that sometimes on dates, she would wear just a coat and absolutely nothing else, to get herself and her husband in the mood. Talking to the Daily Mail, she said: ‘For a hot date night, I’d wear a coat with nothing on underneath. I also like the secretary look” and while getting intimate, she would choose to wear nothing but a pair of brand-new heels.
An interview by the Daily Star has recently come to light again over the past few days, in which a pregnant Holly aired her confession back in 2009. She said: “I love wearing new shoes during (intimacy). I do enjoy (naughty) games with my hubby, but I have found the best way to break in new shoes is to wear them (in the bedroom).
“It’s become a sort of rule whenever I get a new pair of shoes. I always wear them in the bedroom – before I take them outside. Every girl loves a new pair of six-inch heels and I’m no different.”
She also went on to tell Look Magazine that she feels her absolute best during intimate moments, which of course does make a lot of sense.
Holly met her husband-to-be Dan Baldwin when they worked together on a kid’s TV show named Ministry of Mayhem; before tying the knot in 2007.
In an interview with OK! Magazine last year, she said: ‘I always say to Dan we’re very lucky – we’ve got each other, family, a lovely home. He’s got his own production company, which is hugely successful… We’re very lucky, that’s for sure, and with everything else that’s going on, we still fancy the pants off each other! That really helps.’ she added.
Holly’s sauciest moments on Celebrity Juice
Most viewers are used to seeing Holly’s straight-laced persona during daytime to TV on This Morning, but when she sits on the panel of Celebrity Juice alongside Keith Lemon and Fearne Cotton, it’s a whole different story. Here are some of her most shocking moments over the years:
1. Lick my baubles
On a Christmas episode of the show, Holly was made to participate in a challenge that involved her licking some baubles hanging from a Christmas tree, while Keith stood behind smirking. Yeah, we know what he was up to…
2. She went ‘bananas’ over Fearne
In one episode, Holly participated in a challenge that involved her biting one end of the banana, while Fearne held the other side in her mouth. They then had to go round an obstacle course – while still holding the banana in their mouth.
3. Searching Tinchy Strider’s trousers
In one episode, Holly and Frankie Bridge (from The Saturdays) took part in a challenge that involved kneeling down in front of Tinchy Stryder and searching his trousers for an object. On one occasion, Holly’s hand rose too far up let’s say, before squeaking “Sorry”, to which Tinchy replied: “You don’t have to apologise”. Oh I bet Tinchy, I bet.
4. Kissing Keith’s ‘Butternut Squash’
In another episode, Keith placed a large butternut squash in front of his trousers and told Holly he’d give her a point if she kissed it. To the whoops and cheers of the crowd, she did – but what Gino D’Acampo said next is far too ‘out there’ to repeat!
