Holly Willoughby has said she gets furious when her husband judges the television shows she watches.

The This Morning presenter, who has been married to producer Dan Baldwin for 14 years, opened up about how they clash over the remote control in her new book, Reflections.

Getting candid about what makes her tick, the 40-year-old host penned: ‘If I’m watching something on TV and my husband suddenly asks, “Why are you watching this s***?”, it’ll spark something deep inside and I will get disproportionately angry about it.

‘But actually, I’m angry because I subconsciously feel as though someone’s trying to control what I’m doing.’

Holly continued: ‘My husband absolutely isn’t trying to control me, but I’m getting a really strong reaction, so maybe I’m worried about control in my life.

‘Maybe that’s a sign that I still need to address the issue of control.’

Holly, who shares three children with husband Dan, previously said she loves Netflix dating show Love Is Blind and E4’s Made In Chelsea.

In September, Holly launched a lifestyle website Wylde Moon exploring topics from ‘beauty and fashion, to energy and healing’.

The 40-year-old said she was inspired to create the project while co-hosting I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! in Australia in 2018 as she explored the world of alternative therapies, including meditation and sound baths.

The platform is split into seven categories: women, moonboard, podcast, energy, beauty, style and family.

Holly Willoughby Biography, Wiki

Holly Willoughby (born 10.2.1981) Holly Willoughby is a British TV presenter and model. She has presented a number of high-profile TV shows in the UK, such as CD:UK and This Morning.

Holly Willoughby was raised in Sussex, attending Burgess Hill School for Girls and The College of Richard Collyer in Horsham.

At the age of 14, she was spotted by talent scouts at The Clothes Show Live exhibition and was shortly signed up by Storm Model Management. She appeared in a number of teen magazines, such as Mizz, Just Seventeen and More! Then, from the age of 17, she started modelling underwear for brands such as Pretty Polly, appearing in a number of posters and magazine adverts.

In 2006, Willoughby won a Bafta in recognition of her abilities as a children’s TV presenter. She is frequently rated as one of the most beautiful and desirable women in the UK. In early 2008, she used those good looks to help make the point that the UK, as a nation, waste too much water, by having a 3-minute shower in a cubicle before the public fountain in the middle of Trafalgar Square, London. The event was part of the Be Water Wise campaign which lead up to World Water Day on 22 March 2008.

Willoughby has caused minor scandal on occasion. While presenting the children’s programme Ministry of Mayhem, in 2004, she accidently exposed a breast. In January 2008, Willoughby presented Dancing on Ice in a very low cut dress which led to a small number of complaints by the viewing public.
