Holly Willoughby has said that one of the reasons why she is where she is now is down to hair blonde hair.

The 39-year-old This Morning host has credited her locks for being instrumental in landing the roles that she's had on TV and that she would not change her hair colour in fear it would leave her "unemployed".

The ITV daytime show host was joined by Big Brother legend Davina McCall on Instagram Live on Tuesday evening as they did a live hair dyeing session.

The pair are both faces of Garnier and they were joined by more than 10,000 followers for their live stream, as they shared how they have been fixing their roots since the beginning of lockdown.

Holly said: "I'm not an expert but you don't have to be. That's the point of home colouring.

"Had it not been for lockdown I'm not sure we would have done this on camera.

"But now people know that we do actually do it at home."

Davina added: "When I went from blonde to brunette I felt a bit invisible but now I wouldn't go back."

This tickled Holly, who said: "Good job you're brunette and I am then blonde then. I would be out of a job if I wasn't blonde."

Holly then went on to say that she had been debating with herself about whether she should revamp her look in the new year.

She continued: "I've gone a bit longer during lockdown and I am debating if I should chop-chop again."

This all came after Holly sparked concern at the end of last week, as she missed two days of This Morning.

At the time, her co-host Phillip Schofield said she was having a "well earned rest" but over the weekend, Holly confirmed what caused her to have the days off.

Taking to her Instagram Story at the weekend, Holly said her absence was due to her children having a coronavirus scare and that she wanted to make sure they were okay.

Holly wrote: "Just wanted to say thank you for all your kind messages…

“Over the last few days two of our children were unwell and had symptoms of Covid. In line with government guidelines we were waiting for results of the tests before I could return to work.

“Couple that with just wanting to look after two poorly children, it meant having two days away from This Morning.

“I chose not to alert everyone to this because my focus was on looking after them… Thankfully all tests came back negative and everybody's feeling much better. See you Monday.”
