Holly Willoughby says cameras were put in her home last year by the This Morning team over fears that the iconic studio would have to be closed due to the coronavirus pandemic.
The mum-of-three, who recently revealed why she never posts photos of her kids on social media, said show bosses were filled with ‘fear and anxiety’ as they didn’t know what to expect.
She told Radio Times: “When this started, we had as much fear and anxiety as everybody else.

“At one point we had cameras put into our homes so we could broadcast from there if we couldn’t get into the studio.”
Willoughby’s co-host, Philip Schofield, added: “We watched the team drift away and suddenly it was just Holly and I getting ready in make-up – and that was like a therapy session.
“But right from the start, we said we didn’t want to do hysteria broadcasting. Not doom and gloom, but honest and challenging.”
Elsewhere in the chat, Willoughby revealed she feared ‘looking stupid’ when she first began presenting the hit daytime show in 2009.
She said: “I only ever felt comfortable in cookery and fashion – I was so scared of asking important questions for fear of looking stupid.
“I was quite young and I think some people were questioning whether I was the right person for the job.
“Luckily, Phil believed in me from the get-go.”
The pair are now long-time best friends and even go on holiday together.
Last year, when Schofield came out as gay, Holly threw her support behind him when he revealed his truth in a statement shared on Instagram.
It read: “You never know what’s going on in someone’s seemingly perfect life, what issues they are struggling with, or the state of their wellbeing – and so you won’t know what has been consuming me for the last few years,” he wrote.
“With the strength and support of my wife and my daughters, I have been coming to terms with the fact that I am gay.”
