Holly Willoughby gets ‘overwhelmingly spoilt’ by Dancing On Ice bosses as they surprise her ahead of 40th birthday


HOLLY Willoughby got “overwhelmingly spoilt” by Dancing On Ice bosses today, with the team surprising the star ahead of her 40th birthday.

The much-loved TV presenter will turn the milestone age on Wednesday 10 February, and she’s already kicked off celebrations in style.

Holly had her name spelt out in giant light-up letters

Taking to her Instagram page after tonight’s live show, Holly thanked her Dancing On Ice pals for lavishing her with treats – including attention-grabbing decorations and cake.

In a stunning snap, the mother-of-three posed in front of giant light-up letters that spelt out her name, which had been decorated with pink flamingos.

Silver metallic tinsel curtains have also been put up, with balloons visible in one corner.

Holly looked sensational as she stood with one hand on her hip, wearing the slinky light blue dress she wore on the show.

The touched star captioned the photo: “Thank you @dancingonice for making me feel so special… it’s kicked off my birthday week in style…

“Honestly felt overwhelmingly spoilt today with all the decorations and cake!!!! Thank you…. love you to bits! 🎂 💗🦄🦩🌸✨🍭🥂”.

Earlier this week, Holly admitted that she was “gutted” she wouldn’t be able to mark her special day surrounded by her A-list friends.

Speaking on This Morning, the TV favourite said she’d cancelled her party – but intended on celebrating virtually with some of her closest pals.

She said on Thursday’s episode of the daytime show: “It’s bittersweet as next week I’m celebrating my big 4-0 and tomorrow night would have been my big birthday party that I had to cancel!

“So it will look very different. But as long as I’ve got a cake and a glass in my hand I’ll be fine.”

The This Morning team will surprise her on the day

Even though Holly will move her party online, Phillip Schofield and the This Morning team will be sure to treat the mum-of-three in-studio on her big day.

HOAR on Sunday exclusively revealed that the star will get a cake from Phillip and the crew before she leaves on February 10.

Holly previously said of her milestone age: “I’m really looking forward to it.

“My thirties have been all about the kids, bringing them up, keeping all these balls in the air, but now they’re getting older I can start focusing on things happening for me.”
