"Something's Missing" Holly Willoughby opens up about family and husbands in rare discussions

HOLLY WILLOUGHBY has been candid about losing touch with herself amid her busy work and family life and how she finally made some time for myself last year. (Author: Gardener)

last yearHolly Willoughby said that while she was "blessed" in many ways, she felt something was "missing" in her life and decided to work on solo projects. With that, last year the presenter published her new book Reflections, launched her website Wylde Moon and podcast The Light of the Moon. The 40-year-old revealed: "I have a very happy relationship with my husband. I love him, I'm still into him – which is fantastic.” In the last few years I've looked inward a bit. And I kind of got to that point in my life where I was like, 'I have a really nice life, I love my husband, I'm into my husband. I am very blessed in many ways, but something is missing. '" Holly said she soon realized she was missing something about herself, adding, "My whole life [I've been] doing list, tick list, like da, da, da, da, da and for so long we run and we keep going and we keep going, keep going. "And all of a sudden I was like, 'I don't know who I am, I don't even know what music I like, I don't know what my tastes are anymore'." Holly spoke to Amanda Holden on Heart Radio "I'm getting in, take off the heels, I'm lying on the sofa." She also expressed the importance of not bringing work home or "it just takes over". Holly tied the knot with husband Dan in 2007. On last year's One Show, the mother of three also revealed her guilt as a working mom. "It's totally normal, but what I had to really focus on where the guilt was coming from," she began to work.'" She continued, "What I feel guilty for is telling myself straight in some way that I clearly don't love my kids because I love my career more than my kids, which is why I'm picky about doing so."

Holly Willoughby opens up on Boris Johnson's dubious lockdown work event

This Morning's Holly Willoughby attacked the British Prime Minister This Morning on Thursday 13th January (Author: Gardener)

Holly WilloughbyThis morning's Holly Willoughby has poked fun at Boris Johnson after he called it a "work event" for attending a lockdown event in May 2020. It was recently revealed that Boris and other Downing Street staff were meeting for drinks in the garden and were told to "bring your own alcohol". "Please join us from 6pm and bring your own alcohol," he added. Meanwhile, the rest of the country was in lockdown and millions of Britons were unable to visit family and friends for weeks. Boris has since apologized but has not accepted full responsibility for his actions and will not do so until the ongoing investigation into the matter is complete. The controversy comes after it was revealed last year that Number 10 was hosting a Christmas party in December 2020. Millions of people have criticized Boris, including Holly Willoughby, who joined the Loose Women panel in criticizing the Prime Minister today, Thursday 13 January. Speaking to Charlene White ahead of the Loose Women performance, Charlene said the panel "threw a party" to celebrate her one-year anniversary on the show, while Linda Robson, Nadia Sawalha and Carol McGiffin sat next to her in party hats.

"Don't forget to bring your own booze," Charlene added, once again attacking the ongoing Number 10 controversy. "I always do," Holly replied with a laugh, just days after she admitted smuggling G&Ts into the Dancing on Ice finale for her and Phillip Schofield after their wrap party was canceled due to the pandemic. The mother-of-three revealed: "Last year we weren't allowed to have a graduation party because of Covid so I snuck in two of my kids' water bottles with their names on them. "Nobody got to see what was inside and I filled them up with gin and tonics, one for Phil and one for me, and in the final commercial break before the end I was like, 'We can get the gin out now.'"

Holly WilloughbyHolly Willoughby left face red after accidentally texting a man asking for a new bra. This Morning presenter Holly Willoughby couldn't hide her embarrassment at her typo she made live on the ITV show Her InboxSomething went wrong, please try again later. Thanks for subscribingWe have more newslettersShow meHolly Willoughby was red-faced on tonight's episode of This Morning as she told viewers at home that she accidentally texted a man saying she was dating a new man bra needed. As Holly, 40, and her co-host Phillip Schofield welcomed back fans of the ITV show after a commercial break, the presenting couple broke into fits of giggles. The mother-of-three, Holly, was then forced to explain how she made a massive on-air blunder trying to text when the cameras weren't rolling, before autocorrect resulted in a humiliating moment. Trying to hide her embarrassment, Holly said, "To the person I was texting, quickly on break, just as I was about to say, 'I need a new one.'" Holly was red-faced this morning. She continued, "I broadcast it and I was like, 'Oh, I just got away with five seconds before we get back on the air.' I just looked at it and 'one' was replaced with 'bra.' As she covered her face and tried to stop laughing, the star added, "So it said, 'I need a new bra.' I don't need a new bra, I need a new one. My sincere apologies!" When ribbing Holly over the hilarious mix-up, Phil, 59, asked his co-host what she was really trying to type, saying, "We'll never know what the 'one' is. What's new?" Holly replied, "It was actually a BBQ, [that] what I was going to say. I need a BBQ.” After the couple joked about why she was thinking of a BBQ in January, Phil turned to Holly for more questions. He said, "So the guy - it's a guy, I'm assuming - you asked for a BBQ is going to be like, 'Oh, I gotta get her a bra now!'" Shortly after, Holly revealed that she texted and read aloud, "Thanks for letting us know, but I'm not sure if that was meant for us." When she and Phil both fell out laughing again, Phil couldn't contain himself. However, Holly was quick to add that he "had put on a laughing face [emojis], thank goodness." Holly was relieved when she received a VIP reply and saw all of our exclusive offers - for free! Holly and Phil then started giggling again as they had to move on to the next segment - a fashion article about sportswear, including sports bras.

Holly Willoughby doesn't want to be "scared" about menopause

Holly Willoughby vows to educate herself about menopause, saying: "It's my next phase in life and I don't want to be afraid of it." (Author: Gardener)

Holly WilloughbyHolly Willoughby announced that she will be opening up about menopause after a revealing chat with Lisa Snowdon This Morning, in which Lisa described her symptoms as "debilitating". Holly and Lisa were joined by Dr. Louise Newson, GP and renowned menopause specialist, who discussed the physical and mental effects of menopause on women. Holly said, "So, I'm sitting here like a sponge, this is my next phase of life, it's coming my way and I want to embrace it without fear." I think the best way to do that is to listen other women, hear the stories, educate myself and learn.” “The response to this has already been huge, so there are a lot of women out there who have questions… It affects half the population and not many people know enough about it. Lisa, who turns 50 this month, explained that her experience of menopause began when she was 42, but little did she know at first that her symptoms were a part of it. Lisa said, "I didn't even know what perimenopause was! I knew about menopause - ish - but in school you learn about periods, puberty, pregnancy, but there was never any mention of perimenopause or menopause, so I was completely in the dark, thinking it was going to happen many, many years in the future. "But looking back, I think the first symptoms were this depression and anxiety, this feeling of being completely out of control and things that I would normally do every day that I couldn't do, it just felt really weird , I just could.' I can't process things.' She continued, 'You can't go to work for fear of bleeding all over the place, just awful. 'I went to a gynecologist and it was never mentioned,' Could you be perimenopausal?' When I was 42, the doctor prescribed me antidepressants and I took them for about six months, but I just knew it wasn't what I needed." "And I got this anger out of nowhere, uncontrollable, over-emotional anger and my poor partner George, he was just like, 'What's going on?'" She continued, "I just had this thought that other women are suffering and don't recognize themselves , quitting work, splitting up with their partners, just don't want to be here anymore because it's just miserable, so it's amazing what you're doing, we need to talk about it." "You said it affects 50% of the world's population is it affecting the men in our lives... the younger generation needs to know, men need to know, people at work need to know, there needs to be a conversation that it can no longer be taboo and HRT has been demonized for so long - it is safe to take.” For perimenopause and menopause advice and support, and to find out more about HRT, visit the NHS website or speak to your GP.

Dancing On Ice returns to TV screens on Sunday, with the show's presenters and judges reuniting for a glamorous photocall in Elstree on Wednesday night. Joining Holly for the photocall were her co-host Phillip Schofield and new judge Oti Mabuse, who joins Christopher Dean, Jayne Torvill and Ashley Banjo in the redesigned panel. Another said: "Why doesn't Holly dress appropriately to be at a rink? New juror Oti Mabuse matched Holly in terms of glamor at Wednesday's photo shoot, wowing in a sparkling mini. Joining the new series of Dancing On Ice are Love Islander Liberty Poole, 21, BMX Olympic silver medalist Kye Whyte, 22, Paul Gascoigne's son Regan Gascoigne, 25, The Vamps' Connor Ball, 25, rugby star Ben Foden, 36 , and Paralympian Stef Reid, 37. This year's celebrity contestants will make their debut on the ice on the live launch show this Sunday, with ITV hoping there will be fewer injuries than last year's chaotic series. In the 2021 series, stars Denise Van Outen, Billie Faiers and Jason Donovan were forced to retire after injury. In 2021, due to Covid restrictions, participants had to form a 'bubble' with their partners and it was filmed without a live audience. Both reserve candidates had to be used for the first time in the show's history as three celebrities were forced to withdraw and two tested positive for the virus. Denise, 47, suffered an injury in the second week after suffering three broken bones and a partially dislocated shoulder. Billie, 31, was the second to withdraw from the competition as she sustained a head injury while training, while Australian actor Jason, 53, was also forced to leave in Week 6 of the show due to a back injury. The series suffered another blow when comedian Rufus Hound, 42, Joe-Warren Plant, 19, and his professional partner Vanessa Bauer, 25, all contracted Covid-19. Judges Jayne Torvill, 64, and Christopher Dean, 63, have announced the next batch of candidates are "well established" and "ready to go" after last year's turmoil. He said: "Last year the training was crowded - squeezed - while this year the celebrities took longer through the process of being introduced to the ice. So from an injury perspective, I think they're ready to go. The 2021 show was beset with difficulties and was eventually forced off the air, resulting in Phil, 59, and Holly sipping G&Ts during the series' final commercial break. Holly recently revealed: "Last year we weren't allowed to have a wrap party because of Covid so I snuck in two of my kids' water bottles with their names on them." She continued, "Nobody got to see what was inside and I filled them up with gin and tonics, one for Phil and one for me, and in the final commercial break before the end I was like, 'We can put out the gin now.' 'We don't do this in every commercial break but there was no closing party for the finale and after the last series we needed them all.' The new Dancing on Ice series starts this Sunday at 18.30 on ITV.

"You get this fluff of fluff all of a sudden, and sequins and feathers just appear through my door and I feel like Cinderella for the day." She added, "I'm never allowed to wear big dresses anymore, you only get married once and you're allowed the big one." Only wear the dress (once) but luckily I get to play dress up every Sunday at Dancing On Ice over the years so I'm just looking forward to doing it all again." Willoughby says it's usually around 10 or There are 15 dresses she can try on, some of which have been customized to work better on camera.

EFL seek clarity on Derby funding

Derby County administrators are set to show the EFL how they intend to fund the club through the end of the season. (Author: Gardener)

EFLDerby County administrators have been ordered to show the English Football League how they intend to fund the club through the end of the season. Although manager Wayne Rooney said he expects a preferred bidder to be named by the end of this week, it meant that due to the recent situation that has not happened. An EFL statement read: "Following their board meeting on Thursday 13 January, the EFL wrote to Administrators reiterating that they urgently need confirmation of how they intend to act while Derby County is in administration remains, including a financing plan for this, will enable the club to meet its playing commitments until the end of the current season.” Without this transparency, the league is unable to approve player signings or renew existing registrations and this position was given to the club before yesterday's meeting." Administrators Quantuma said they were unable to complete the club's financing immediately, despite offers from three parties, but believed it would be completed in the coming weeks and be approved by creditors , and this with a view to adapting the offers received to the EFL-Ins Directive and its requirements for Cred ditors," Quantuma said in a statement. “The difficulty and, in our view, the last remaining significant obstacle at this time, is how to deal with certain claims which are very controversial but which are recommended to us by the EFL, which cannot be compromised at this stage, legislation notwithstanding. "We are urgently seeking clarification from the EFL as to why these disputed claims cannot be compromised." Without proof of funding, Derby are barred from signing any players, meaning an extension of former England defender Phil Jagielka's contract, which was due to expire on January 17, was denied possible has been completed and he has left the club.The 39-year-old has played 21 games for the Rams and Rooney is said to have been furious when he left." Stadium to be extended Unfortunately he has not been able to put pen to paper due to the restrictions the club is operating under," read a statement from the club. It is understood that none of the potential bidders are willing to take on Derby on wi If you have some clarity on this issue, the EFL have proposed negotiating a deal with Middlesbrough and Wycombe which best way forward could be. The only way Derby's admin Quantuma can currently generate funds is through either selling players or if a preferred bidder is willing to put their money into the club. Derby rejected what Rooney described earlier this week as "ridiculous" bids for players. However, some Championship rivals are understood to be unhappy at the rejection of offers - while Derby are negotiating a deal with HMRC that will leave more than £20million unpaid, out of a total bill of £28million. If that doesn't happen, 15 points will be deducted from the derby next season. Derby supporters group Rams Trust has asked administrators for a "full, candid and immediate update" on the situation. "Gone is the time for fans to be left in the dark, especially given what looks like a serious threat to Derby County FC's existence," the group said in a statement.
