This Morning presenter's sister lifts the lid on their family life

This Morning presenter Holly Willoughby and her sister might be close, but writer Kelly Willoughby says they couldn’t be more different.

Holly and I are like chalk and cheese – even down to our hair colour,’ she says. ‘Despite this, we’re still incredibly close.’

Holly, 32, was  scouted by a model agency at the age of 14, and Kelly, 35, says the experience turned her shy sister into a more confident person.

‘She was a quiet child at school, but I remember watching her suddenly find herself once she’d done bits of modelling and started college.

‘She just became stronger, confident. It was amazing to watch.’

Holly admits she never planned to have a TV career. ‘I never grew up dreaming I’d become a TV presenter,’ she says. ‘Outside the fantasy world I shared with my sister, Kelly, I was actually a really shy child.’
