Shes got a six-figure fashion deal with a high street giant, three bumper TV jobs and a workwear wardrobe TDF.

But Holly Willoughby, 37, admits she used to be afraid of how she looked in the mirror and never left the house without mascara on.

The mum-of-three speaks to Red magazine this month about how she literally no longer cares about putting make-up on for days off, and regularly cancels plans with friends for a takeaway and telly night with her kids.

There was a time where I wouldnt go out of the house without at least putting mascara on. Now I literally dont care. Im not afraid of how I look in the mirror.

On the importance on family time, Holly added: I dont really see anybody. I turn down a lot of stuff – even friend stuff – and because theyre friends, they understand that I just want to be able to sit at home, order a takeaway and watch telly with my family.

Holly has even flown her three children – Harry, Belle and Chester, along with husband Dan – to Australia with her while she films Im A Celebrity.

This Morning has granted her a three-week break from regular morning scheduling while she covers Ant McPartlins presenting role, but she still insists: I dont want to have it all.

Why would you want to have it all? I think the biggest misconception about me is that people seem to think that I want it all and that I had it all and I walked away from having it all. That was never part of it. I never wanted it all.

To cap it all, the bombshells outfits, whether its on This Morning, Celebrity Juice, Im A Celeb or Instagram, are an instant sell-out with fans.

She explained: On This Morning, you can actually see whats being worn. Its an honest way of seeing what an item of clothing looks like.

Also, Im not completely straight up and down, Im curvy, so I think Im sort of a normal shape, wearing normal clothes. That makes people go, “Oh yes, I might look like that in that.”
