What’s in store for Holly Willoughby this Christmas?

This means Holly’s husband Dan Baldwin and their children Chester, five, Belle, nine and Harry, 11, may not be able to spend Christmas with her parents.

The host discussed the strict measures on the ITV show today, alongside co-host Phillip Schofield, Matthew Wright and Nicola Thorp.

Holly said: “What will Christmas look like? It’s going to be very awkward in my house.

“I’m in a family of five so I’ll have to choose between my mum and dad on Christmas Day.”

She later added: “It’s not a nice thing to look forward to, is it?”

Matthew replied: “You can’t have your parents over on Christmas Day but you can go on public transport.

“For the life of me, I can’t make any sense of it.”

Holly famously shares a close bond with her mum Lynne and dad Brian.

What are the new rules?

Under the new rules, it will be illegal for groups of more than six to meet in England.

The measure will be introduced on Monday (September 14)  to help lower the number of people socialising in groups.

Secretary of State for Health Matt Hancock said today on BBC Radio 4 that there is no known end date to the new rule.

He added that the six limit rule could easily still be in place come Christmas time.
