Holly Willoughby seems to have everything sussed. She shares an idyllic life with her husband Daniel Baldwin and their three children, Harry, nine, Belle, seven and Chester, four.

But the 37-year-old presenter admits there is one thing she wishes she’d done differently in life – and that’s her wedding shoes!

Speaking on This Morning this week, Holly said: “My advice to a bride approaching her big day is to make sure she has comfortable shoes.

“I know you want to be Cinderella [with] glitzy, sparkly, amazing high heels, but I fell into that trap and I ended up walking barefoot all day.”

She added that it meant she ruined her gown, saying: “If you look at the hem of my wedding dress now, it is covered in dirt and grime.

“Although it was very much lived in and can tell a few stories!”

Holly, who recently celebrated 11 years of marriage to TV producer Dan, went on to say she’d otherwise had a magical day.

“It is one of the best days of your life, I know it’s cliché but it absolutely is,” she said.

“Everybody says pace yourself, enjoy it, take a moment to stand in the corner of the marquee and look at everybody.

“Remember all those small moments. Take a moment with your husband to look at everybody so you remember that day because it goes so fast.”

It followed Holly’s girls’ night out with her celebrity friends Emma Bunton and Nicole Appleton.


The This Morning presenter took to Instagram on Thursday to repost a snap from Emma’s Instagram showing the trio enjoying some wine with some of their other pals.

Singer Emma, 42, captioned her post: “And suddenly everything feels better!”


Sharing the sweet picture to her own Instagram, Holly gushed: “Love you girls… feeling all 🧘‍♀️ by just being near you..”
