Holly Willoughby Pregnant: Star Says She'll Host 'This Morning' Until She Goes Into Labour

Holly Willoughby has admitted she won’t be taking a long maternity leave before the birth of her third baby, and in fact is planning on working right up until she goes into labour.

Holly currently co-hosts daytime show ‘This Morning’ alongside Phillip Schofield - in addition to her role as a panelist on ‘Celebrity Juice’ - but is insistent that her pregnancy isn’t going to stand in the way of her working as much as possible.

She told The Mirror: “It's so hard to know when I'm going to go into labour.

"I'm just going to keep working until one day I don't come back in again. That's what I've done before.”

Holly, who announced that she and her husband Dan Baldwin were expecting their third child back in March, is insistent that people shouldn’t feel bad for her for continuing to work as she’s rarely on her feet.

She joked: “My job is sat on a sofa. I'm sitting down all the time on ‘This Morning’, and on ‘Celebrity Juice’ I'm behind a desk. So don't feel too sorry for me.”

When Holly eventually does go on maternity leave, it’s thought that there are two possible candidates to replace her, after it was reported that producers are torn between Christine Bleakley and Emma Willis.

Holly - who already has one son and one daughter - has also said that she won’t be finding out the sex of her newborn before the birth, as she wants it to be a surprise.
