The This Morning presenter will be feeling especially merry with her family this year

Holly Willoughby is looking forward to a big Christmas celebration with plenty of food – and to having a cheeky tipple too.

It will be a big family Christmas and I can’t wait. I love cooking. I did it a few years ago but I was heavily pregnant then, and so this year, I can have a few glasses of sherry while the turkey is cooking. It’s going to be lovely,’ says Holly.

The TV presenter, 31, will be spending the day with her husband, producer Dan Baldwin, and their children Harry, 3, and Belle, 1.

We leave all the stockings in our bed and the kids come into our room and open them. We did that when I was a child,’ Holly tells Saturday.

Even when I was too old to be doing it, we’d still get into bed with our parents and open our stockings.’
