Unfortunately, many of us have had to celebrate a blockade birthday over the past year, and This Morning Star Holly Willoughby said she would do the same.
On the weekend, the amazed blonde beauty in a black gown at Dancing On Ice will be celebrating her landmark 40th birthday on February 10th, but she won’t have the day she planned.
The presenter discussed her milestone birthday with co-star Phillip Schofield in a section titled’How to Celebrate Birthdays While Locked Up’, revealing her plans for an important day on hold.

Holly confessed: “It’s sweet because we’re celebrating a big 4-0 next week and tomorrow night is a big birthday party that I had to cancel!
“So it will look very different. But if you have a cake and a glass in your hand, it will be fine.”
To comfort Holly, Phil immediately told her “Take a Wotsit,” adding “It’ll be fine.”
Despite her big bash being canceled, this fabulous star hopes to celebrate turning 40 on a Zoom call with her Showbiz friends.
These include spice girls star Emma Bunton (age 45), Nicole Appleton (age 46), Tamzin Outhwaite (age 50), and her older sister Kelly.
Holly will also have a family company in a £3 million mansion, including her husband Dan Baldwin and three children Harry (11, Bell, 9 years old) and Chester (6 years old).
The beautiful star ruling the queen during the day has already opened a milestone birthday.
She explained: “I think my 40s is an opportunity to find me back and find out who I am.
“My 30s were all about kids raising kids and floating all these balls, but now as I get older I have a little more space to focus on what’s happening.”
Holly started out as a model, but hasn’t looked back since making his TV debut on CITV’s S Club TV in 2000.
Soon after, ITV bosses realized that the bubbly blonde was the winner. In 2004, she was booked for Mayhem Secretary (later renamed Holly & Stephen’s Saturday Showdown) with her good friend Stephen Mulhern.
It was on the Saturday Showdown set that Holly first met producer husband Dan Baldwin.
It wasn’t love at first sight, according to the Brighton-born star. “He came from MTV and he was very nice to school,” she explained. “He looked at me like I was the wall of this man. I said,’Oh my god, he hates me. He just thinks he’s really cool. ‘”
The two knew each other as friends for six months before becoming an item, and later married in 2007.
Holly describes the moment when he realized that Dan was more than a friend, saying, “We were at the bar and we had a glass of champagne and we cheered and I saw him and it was like’Oh my god, I’m cool him.’ At that moment I knew it was like a little sparkle. “
