Holly Willoughby stuns as she swigs champagne with famous friends on luxury Christmas day out

The group of women once again enjoyed a ride on a Belmond British Pullman train, which has become somewhat of a festive tradition for them.

A festive lunch aboard the train costs £520 per person and features a five course lunch, half a bottle of wine and champers to start.

They were also treated to a performance from The Spitfire Sister, who recreate 30s and 40s tunes.

Sharing a video from their fun day out, Holly wrote: “All aboard the Christmas Train 🎄🚂… dreamy day with my girls.”

She added that they were missing their pal Christine Lampard.

The This Morning presenter looked suitably festive, wearing a spotted dress with large collar.

Spice Girl Emma also shared the video and told her fans: “Special day with my gorgeous girls ❤.”

Holly is known for being a huge fan of Christmas and often puts her Christmas tree up in November.

Speaking previously about her plans for the big day, she said: Holly said: “The kids like honey or jam on toast cut into triangles to make it look a bit posh.

“Dan and I usually have smoked salmon on toast while we are opening the tree presents with a glass of Buck’s Fizz.

“All three kids run in very early, at fever pitch level of excitement, with some of them having not slept all night.

“My eldest had about an hour of sleep last year I think, so I’m hoping this year we will wake up slightly brighter than we did last year.

“But with three young children, it’s Christmas chaos with a very early start.

“We have to try and stop ourselves from opening the tree presents before breakfast because we’re all up at about 5.30am.”

This Morning’s Spin to Win disaster as Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield left red-faced

THIS Morning suffered an epic fail of its daily game Spin to Win today.

Hosts Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield were left red-faced after a disastrous run of callers.

Phillip Schofield wasn’t happy on This Morning

The first This Morning viewer called Carol said “hello” – breaking the key rule of the game by failing to say the code word.

The second caller, Loz, said nothing because they were waiting for the television to catch up.

When the third call just rang out to Brenda’s voicemail, Phillip admitted: “I’m losing the will to live. I can’t believe it.”

Jordan then didn’t pick up in time, meaning there was no winner today.

About 90 minutes into the daytime show, Holly arrived mid-interview to join the “world’s ugliest dog”.

Phillip said: “It was very peculiar without you.”

Meanwhile This Morning presenters Holly and Phillip Schofield revealed the show’s incredible Christmas transformation.

Some 22 trees are decorating the studio, many of which have been reused over the past seven years.

Baubles and fairy lights twinkle everywhere, with the famous studio now resembling a cosy festive chalet.

Wreathes have been hung on the walls, handmade paper chains, tinsel and foliage line nearly every surface and there are even toy soldiers and presents dotted all around.

Addressing any potential backlash over the change being done too early, Phillip reassured viewers it was fine because advent officially began on Sunday.

While Holly added that the film Love Actually’s first scenes begin five weeks before Christmas further justifying the transformation.

The 42-year-old star bravely opened up about her anxiety surrounding the procedure and hopes the operation will make her feel better.

Kerry admitted to New magazine: “I’m having corrective surgery in January with Pall Mall Cosmetics after my tummy tuck last year, so I’m hoping that will help. I’m getting an eyelid lift too. Only a small one – I don’t want cat eyes!”

She admitted: “I had a massive panic attack last week. It was the first one I’ve had in a while. My body has swollen since I had surgery last year.

“My whole body is sore and puffy – my legs, my stomach, my face, my neck. I feel like I need popping.”


The former I’m A Celebrity campmate also admitted that sometimes her mental health has become so bad around her appearance, she has arranged to get more professional guidance.

Kerry spilled: “I was lying down in bed and I felt like I couldn’t breathe. My throat and chest felt really tight, it was awful.

“I felt like I was going to die. I’ve arranged a call with my doctor but if it gets worse I’ll go to A&E.”

She added: “I suffer from health anxiety and I’m really scared.”

Insiders revealed how the broadcaster were keen to deepen their ties with Holly and had her in mind for a handful of upcoming BBC projects.

A source said: “Holly is very much a key target for the BBC and she was their guest at the Variety Club awards.

“Holly was wined and dined by Charlotte who is keen to get Holly on board for some of their upcoming big shows.

“Her husband Dan is on board and thinks Holly could make great strides at the Beeb.

“After the ‘Queue-Gate’ scandal earlier this year Holly felt upset by how ITV handled the situation.

“The BBC have made it clear to Holly how valuable they think she is and would love to get her working on more of their shows.

“The invite to the bash and spending time with the top brass is all part of the Beeb’s plan to woo Holly.”

Onlookers at the ceremony, held at the Hilton Hotel on London’s Park Lane last Monday, revealed how Holly and Dan left part way through the ceremony.


Love Island star Zara McDermott, who has started making a series of documentaries on the BBC, was also on the table and after Holly’s departure was moved into her seat to speak to Charlotte.

The Sun revealed earlier this year how Holly and her This Morning co-star Philip Schofield had been rocked by the backlash to accusations they skipped to queue to see the Queen lying in state.

At the time the pair apologised and refuted claims they had skipped the queue.

Holly, who has presented This Morning for 13 years alongside Phil, also hosts Dancing On Ice on the channel.

Last year she dipped her toe into Primetime on the BBC – hosting gameshow, Take Off With Bradley And Holly, alongside Bradley Walsh.

In April this year she also fronted BBC One show Freeze The Fear alongside Lee Mack.

Insiders said the BBC had big plans for the future with Holly.

Strictly fans all say the same thing as Alison Hammond makes surprise announcement

While Alison is best known for being on ITV, the stunt was done in honour of the new series of her BBC talent show, I Can See Your Voice.

“Evning, no your ears don’t lie, it’s me, Alison Hammond! Your celebrity investigator,” she was heard saying.

“We’ve got a cracker of a night for you here on BBC One, with the return of I Can See Your Voice.

“But first, let’s quickstep our way straight into tonight with Strictly, with flashing images.”

The brief appearance left fans beaming, with all of them hoping it was a trial run for a potential Eurovision spot, or even a full-on takeover of the Beeb.

One fan wrote: “Alison Hammond BBC takeover? Fair enough”

“LOVE @AlisonHammond being the @BBCOne announcer!!!,” said a second.

While a third added: “@AlisonHammond introducing every show on TV ever is something I could get behind.”

The new series of I Can See Your Voice starts tonight, where she will be joined by Jimmy Carr, Amanda Holden and Paddy McGuinness for the hilarious guessing game.


Alison does have some connection to Strictly, having previously appeared on the show herself back in 2014.

Partnered with Aljaž Škorjanec, she lasted seven weeks in the competition before being voted off.

The series was eventually won by Caroline Flack and Pasha Kovalev.

Actress and comedian Emily Atack gushed: “Oh my god. This picture is just.”

TV personality Kate Thornton added: “Looking all kinds of gorgeous.”

Earlier this week Alison was spotted looking slimmer than ever in a sparkling mini dress as she modelled for a fashion brand on Instagram.

The TV star looked chic as she donned a sparkling mini dress and knee-high boots as part of the ad for a clothing sale.


Alison posed with her hands on her hips as she showed off her new look, in a tight-fitting sparkling black dress, cut above her knee.

She paired her glam look with chunky leather boots and simple silver jewellery, as she advertised a new dress collection with In The Style.

Alison has been working hard to shred the pounds this year – and in July, revealed she had cut out sugar as part of a new diet.

She weighed 20 stone at her biggest and started to lose weight after her beloved mother died in 2020.

“Sometimes I look at myself and go, ‘Wow, I am a big girl’. But I like taking up a bit of space,” said Alison on Lorraine Kelly’s podcast.

“I take a little bit of extra space in the world and I don’t think I’m hurting anyone.”

She added: “We’re all going to die eventually. I might die a little bit sooner, but I’m going to live my life to the fullest.

“And if I do die sooner, I’m going to have a fantastic life. I’m going to have a wonderful life. I’m 47 now, I don’t know how long I’m going to go on for.”

Earlier this month, Alison was seen looking incredible as she glammed up for a snap alongside her This Morning co-star Josie Gibson.

The TV star – who presents the ITV daytime show on Friday – glammed up with a full face of make-up, as she straightened her naturally curly hair into a chic style.
