Holly Willoughby is unrecognisable as brunette in smouldering lingerie shoot

After receiving a business card from the modelling agency Storm Management, Holly began her journey into the entertainment industry.

Speaking to the Daily Mail, she shared how she “wasn’t nervous or worried [she] was going to be picked apart”.

She added: “I appreciate it was down to luck that it happened – modelling is a hard field to break into these days and I’m grateful I never saw the dark side of the industry.

“It opened a lot of doors for me that I never thought were possible.”

In 2018, she posted a throwback of herself modelling another set of underwear from the 2000s.

Featured in an Argos catalogue, Holly was joined by fellow presenters Emma Willis, 47, and Tess Daly, 54, who also started off their careers in commercial modelling.

She eventually got her first presenting gig on the children’s show Ministry Of Mayhem in 2004.

She was joined by her future ITV colleague Stephen Mulhern, 46.

Holly then became co-presenter on Dancing On Ice with Phillip Schofield, 61.

In recent weeks, the stars have had much speculation regarding their future as co-presenters as their “rift” continues.

Reports claimed that the pair were no longer speaking off-camera, having worked together for 14 years.

Now, The Sun reports that the duo are planning to take a week-long break from This Morning for the half-term holidays.

Express.co.uk has contacted ITV for comment.

Last week, Phillip, 61, touched on their friendship over the years, both in front and behind the cameras.

“The last few weeks haven’t been easy for either of us”, he told the aforementioned publication.

“As I have said before, Holly is my rock. We’re the best of friends – as always, she is an incredible support on screen, behind the scenes and on the phone.

“Holly has always been there for me, through thick and thin. And I’ve been there for her.”
