Holly Willoughby gushes over sister Kelly in birthday tribute

People can't believe how alike they look

Holly Willoughby has marked her sister Kelly’s birthday with a sweet online tribute.

The This Morning star, 40, took to Instagram and shared a picture of herself and Kelly to honour her special day.

In the snap – taken before social distancing was a thing – the girls are grinning while enjoying a cocktail together.

Both are wearing red lipstick and, despite the different hair colours, are clearly related.

Holly has been quick to point out that the picture was taken before social distancing measures were put in place.

The mum-of-three has also described Kelly as her “wing woman” in the gushing caption.

Holly divides fans

Meanwhile, Holly left fans divided this week as she travelled to the This Morning studios.

The telly star snapped a picture of herself in the car while looking through her script.

But some fans took huge issue with the fact she had her feet up on the seat while wearing shoes.

One wrote: “Holly, I do love you, but please take your feet off the seat. I used to tell my children off for that.”

Another added: “I love you Holly, but please don’t put the shoes on the seat, they are so cream and very clean. It’s very rude indeed.”

But others were quick to defend the star, with one replying: “There’s barely a tip of a heel on the seat, calm down!”

Holly did not respond to the comments.
