  • Holly Willoughby is away with her family for summer holidays and there's one thing she won't compromise on when she's spending time with her little ones in the sunshine.

    The mum-of-three is currently enjoying the Portuguese sunshine in Quinta do Lago in the Algarve, with husband Dan Baldwin and her kids – sons Harry, nine, and Chester, three, and daughter Belle, who’s seven-years-old.

    The TV presenter clearly loves spending quality time as a family and often goes on trip with them, but there’s one thing she won’t compromise on if they’re on the beach.

    Speaking to The Sunday Times Style, Holly revealed she’s like the ‘sun police’ as she’s always making sure her kids are protected.

    Tested: Best and worst sun creams

    She said: ‘Sun cream for the whole family is really, really important. I’m like the sun police.’

    When asked how she bribes them to wear it, she added: ‘I think they’re just sort of used to it. They know it’s like my thing. Mum’s going to do it. They’re my snowmen children because they’re just white when they’ve got factor 50 on them.’

    And if her dream family trip comes true, she’ll definitely need to be alert on the ‘sun police’ front, as she previously said she hopes to take her children on a safari.

    Happy Father’s Day baby… they love you… I love you… totally blessed 💕

    While she has a successful career and is often very busy presenting TV shows like This Morning, Dancing on Ice and being part of Celebrity Juice, she always makes time for her little ones and says being a mum is her ‘favourite’ job.

    Speaking to HELLO!, she said: ‘All I ever wanted to do was to be a mum. It wasn’t like when I was at school I thought, ‘
    “Oh, I’m going to be this big career girl”. Being a mummy is definitely my most favourite job of all, without a shadow of a doubt.

    ‘I have the same issues as the next person, but I do feel very lucky that I’ve been blessed with three lovely children and that I look forward to going to work, because I know a lot of people don’t feel like that. If I’m going to get up and leave the kids in the morning then it has to be for something that I care about, or feel passionately about – and I’m lucky to be able to do that.’§
