Holly Willoughby is often in the public eye – if she’s not presenting This Morning, she’d hosting Dancing On Ice alongside Phillip Schofield.
But one thing she keeps largely private is her marriage with Dan Baldwin, and their life with three children.
One thing Holly has shared is that it was far from love at first sight.
Holly and Dan tied the knot in 2007, and have been loved-up ever since – but the 40-year-old revealed during an episode of Celebrity Juice that it wasn’t always friendly between them.
The couple first met when she was fronting Saturday Showdown in 2004, where Dan started working as a producer.
Lifting the lid on their first meeting, Holly told Keith Lemon she didn’t have a crush on him to begin with.
She said: “He’d come from MTV and he was very cool for school and I was in the studio doing silly pirouettes and being stupid.
“He looked at me like I was this wally of a person that wast just spinning around”.
Holly added: “I thought, ‘Oh my God, I hate [him] – he just thinks he’s really cool.”

Trying to stir things even more, Keith asked if she thought Dan was a “d***head* at first, and she replied: “A little bit.”
Luckily, Holly warmed to Dan and were friends for six months before they started dating.
They managed to keep their relationship secret for an impressive eight months before revealing they were a couple.
Dan proposed to Holly in 2006 on the day they moved into their first London home together.

Holly admitted the proposal came as a shock, and said: “I know a lot of people almost have to force their boyfriend to propose but with Dan it was such a shock.
“I knew I'd be with him for the rest of my life, if he'd have me, but nothing can ever prepare you for what it's like when someone asks you. I can't think of any other big decision you make in your life that quickly.”
