Holly is believed to earn a salary of £600,000 for her role on This Morning opposite Phillip Schofield.

Holly and Dan are thought to have a combined net worth of around £13million.

The TaxPayers’ Alliance said of the scheme: ‘Some businesses have repaid the support. They should serve as an example for firms that have come through the past year in rude health.’ 

Dan was previously a producer on Ministry of Mayhem, one of Holly’s earliest shows, where the couple first met before tying the knot in 2007. The couple are parents to Harry, 12, Belle, 10, and Chester, six.
