HOLLY WILLOUGHBY, who hosts This Morning alongside her co-presenter Phillip Schofield, has spoken out on the moment she first met her husband Dan Baldwin, as the ITV favourite admitted she initially thought he was “a bit of a d**khead”.
This Morning presenter Holly Willoughby, 38, joined her colleague and pal for his new self-titled show Christmas Shopping With Keith Lemon on ITV where she was quizzed on her romance with her husband Dan Baldwin, 44. The blonde beauty revealed she “hated” her beau the moment the pair first met but added she felt Dan also felt the same way about her.
As Keith and Holly toured the shops for a spot of festive shopping, the Celebrity Juice host could not help but quiz the mum-of-three on her marriage.
Speaking about her first interaction with Dan, Holly explained: “We were doing Saturday Morning kids telly called Saturday Showdown and we had a producer that was there right at the beginning and he left.
“And I walked into the studio and Dan was there. He was our new producer and I’m like, ‘Oh my God, I hate this guy.’”
Keith Lemon quizzed: “So you didn’t fancy him straight away?”
She replied: “No, not at all. And he came from MTV and he was very cool for school. And I was in the studio doing very weird pirouettes and being stupid.
“He sort of looked at me like I was this wally of a person that was just spinning around going ‘La La La’.”
Holly continued: “And I thought ‘Oh my god he hates me’. And I thought he just thinks he’s really cool.”
Keith interjected: “You thought he’s a d**khead?”
Holly giggled: “A little bit. And then we became really good friends. We were in the bar and we did a cheers over a glass of champagne and I looked at him and as we [toasted]it was like ‘Oh!’” before she added: “I knew I fancied him.”
A stunned Keith further quizzed: “What in that second?”
To which the This Morning host replied: “Yes, in that second I just knew. It was like this little sparkle, like a spell. And then I knew. I was like ‘Oh my God what am I going to do?’ That was it and we were together after that.”
The ITV favourite has become one of the nation’s most-beloved TV personalities and has been married to her British television producer husband Dan, for more than a decade.

The couple met on the set of Ministry of Mayhem in 2004 (which was later renamed Holly and Stephen’s Saturday Showdown), where the two were friends for six months before they started dating.
The pair tied the knot three years later in an intimate ceremony at Amberley Castle.
The couple share three children together – Harry, nine, Belle, seven and Chester, four.
The blonde bombshell recently revealed she would be fine if her career ended but if something were to go wrong with her marriage, she said “it would be the end my world”.
Speaking to Stella Magazine last year, Holly spoke about her career and home life where she divulged: “If my career ended tomorrow, I would be absolutely OK.
“But if things went wrong between me and Dan, it would be the end of my world.”
