How was Holly Willoughby offered the role on Midsomer Murders?

Earlier this year, Holly said she was “speechless” after being offered the acting role.

A super fan of the hit show, which has been going since 1997, she was surprised with the opportunity on This Morning.

Her co-host Phillip Schofield started off with: “We had a brief meeting this morning to discuss how we were best to do this and I think we are best to do it right now and for you [Neil Dudgeon and Nick Hendrix] to tell my friend here what she doesn’t know.”

Neil, who plays DCI John Barnaby on Midsomer Murders, replied: “We have all had a big talk about who we want to appear on Midsomer.

“And we have decided that we want Holly Willoughby to appear in an episode of Midsomer Murders very soon.

“I have been speaking to people upstairs and they have been speaking to your people, but Holly please I am emboldened here to offer you a role in Midsomer Murders.”

Meanwhile, an absolutely stunned Holly reacted with: “That’s amazing! Yes! Of course, I say yes. I have seen every single episode since it started way back when. Are you serious?”

However, Holly went on to joke that she was “terrible” at acting.

The star continued: “I mean you are going to have to kill me off really quickly because I am terrible at acting. I don’t know what I am going to do.”

Finally accepting the offer, Holly added: “I will just walk through the back of the shot slightly. But I would love nothing more.”
