Holly Willoughby and husband Dan to celebrate 15 years of marriage

As the couple prepare to hit the marriage milestone next month, Holly lifted the lid on their marriage secrets.

And she’s offered advice to anyone starting out on the marriage path.

I’m not talking about looking nice for your husband, I’m talking about carving out time in your lives for each other.

“I’d say you have to work hard not to take each other for granted. Continue to make the effort throughout your relationship.

“By effort, I’m not talking about looking nice for your husband, I’m talking about carving out time in your lives for each other.

“If you can’t have a date night, then make sure you sit around the table and eat together, have a glass of something and talk through your day.”

Give your relationship ‘energy’

Holly added: “It’s so easy to live under the same roof and experience the same life but in parallel lanes rather than together.

“Sometimes you forget to look up and really see each other. ‘Oh there you are… there you actually are,'” she said.

“If you continue to put as much energy into your marriage as you do all the other relationships you have in life, you’ll not go far wrong.”
