  • Holly Willoughby has given viewers a rare insight into her relationship with husband Dan, after opening up about their marital rows and admitting that sometimes she needs a ‘bit of space’.

    ITV’s golden girl Holly is known for her beaming smile and positive energy, something that’s made her a hit with This Morning viewers and TV bosses alike.

    But despite her celebrity lifestyle, Holly’s proved she’s just like us and has spoken out about what it’s like when she and husband Dan have arguments – as every couple does!

    The pair will celebrate their 10 year anniversary in August, and it sounds like after nine years of marriage Holly knows the best way to cool down when things get a little bumpy.

    Speaking on This Morning with co-host Phillip Schofield, the mother-of-three explained that if she and her other half get into a disagreement, she thinks it’s better to walk away and let herself ‘calm down a bit’.

    ‘Sometimes I just need to have more of a level head, so I just go off and calm down a bit’, Holly explained.

    ‘I just need that bit of space.’

    They say you should never go to bed on an argument, but the 36-year-old star revealed that she’s more than happy to sleep off a row, explaining that she often feels better waking up to a new day when things ‘don’t seem as bad’.

    ‘I wake up the following morning and things don’t seem as bad.

    ‘Sometimes you’ve just rationalised things a bit better in your head, and you’re not so emotional and quick to snipe and shout.’

    Holly shares three children with her TV producer husband – Harry, eight, Belle, six, and Chester, two.

    The mum recently spoke to OK! magazine about how important her family is to her, opening up about how she manages to put her children before her work.

    ‘I have become quite good at becoming strict with my time and in everything I do in life. I think people think that I work a lot more than I actually do, I work Monday to Thursday and I always have Fridays off.

    ‘I love work but the most important thing is my family and making that right. If that doesn’t feel right, I really put the brake on and pull back.’
