Holly Willoughby ‘full of hope and feeling good’ as UK lockdown restrictions ease

It was recently revealed her Dancing on Ice finale wardrobe rang in at an eye-watering total of £136k. 

Yet Holly Willoughby was going for more low-key glamour on Monday, as she looked simply stunning in a white maxi dress in a snap shared to Instagram to mark the lightened restrictions of lockdown across the UK.  

The presenter, 40, was in high spirits as she told her followers: ‘Restrictions are lifting, shops are opening, summer is on its way… Full of hope and feeling good!’

Her full message read: ‘Restrictions are lifting, shops are opening, summer is on its way… Until we reach the day of these milestones I’m nervous to get too hopefull of it actually happening… Well today it happened… it’s a good day…

The post comes as lockdown measures in the UK eased on Monday to allow shops, gyms, and outdoor dining areas to re-open across the country. 

Her cheer was contagious as Holly’s This Morning colleagues Dermot O’Leary and Alison Hammond were also cheerful on the programme today. 

The presenting duo, who are covering for regular hosts Phillip Schofield and Holly, were seen sitting outside enjoying boozy beverages in west London.

With Chumbawamba’s classic track Tubthumping playing, Dermot, 47, was seen leaning forward to sip from his glass of beer, as he quipped: ‘Hello, old friend!’

After welcoming viewers to the show, he went on in notably animated fashion: ‘Six words I’ve been waiting to say…’ 

‘Go on, say it,’ Birmingham native Alison, 46, interjected as she sat close to him at an adjacent table at White City’s Bluebird Café.

Dermot then went on to utter what were, in fact, five words, as he yelled excitedly: ‘We are at the pub!’

‘Yay!’ Alison cheered. ‘It feels so good! And look at you, having a beer. I’m having a Bailey’s. I love Bailey’s. This is so nice. This is like our first jolly. It’s just so nice.’

After Alison spoke of all the restrictions lifted on Monday, including the reopening of pubs, gyms, non-essential shops and hair salons, she said: ‘Best day ever!’

The pair then made their way back into the studio after opening the show, and Dermot soon remarked on how the day came with inclement weather.

He said: ‘Nothing sums up Britain more than the one day we’re allowed to go to the pub I wake up, I literally open my shutters and it’s snowing at 6 o’clock in the morning!’

Alison shared her excitement about being able to visit her hairdresser once again, as she said: ‘My hairdresser texted me and said, “Babes, I’m open!”
