After a busy year fronting ITV’s This Morning, Holly Willoughby is spending Christmas Day with her nearest and dearest.

The presenter, who is married to Dan Baldwin, is mum to kids Harry, 10, Belle, eight, and Chester, five.

And the star has revealed that she really does think Christmas is the most wonderful time of the year.

“Christmas is without doubt my favourite time of year,” Holly has revealed.

The star is spending Christmas Day at her mum Linda’s.

She told Jonathan Ross: “I love cooking. I’m going down to my mum’s this year so she’s adamant she’s going to do the cooking and I’m feeling like I have to be careful not to get too involved.”

Holly added: “I make a good gravy, I’m quite good at roast potatoes. Hopefully she’ll let me make the gravy.”

Christmas fan Holly certainly started her prep early.

She posted a picture of a delicious-looking box of mince pies to her Instagram Stories back in early November.

Adding a red heart and playing a snippet of Madness song It Must Be Love, Holly said: “Love at first bite….”

She also attended the This Morning Christmas party – alongside pals Phillip Schofield and Rochelle Humes – and helped her sister deck the halls, filling her tree with baubles before enjoying a celebratory tipple.
