‘This Morning’ co-host Holly Willoughby has revealed she knew 29-year-old former ‘Love Island’ star Tom Walker since he was 12 years old when she used to present Saturday morning show ‘Ministry of Mayhem’.
The ‘This Morning’ presenter revealed on today’s (01.07.19) show that she first met the 29-year-old model when she was co-hosting her and Stephen Mulhern’s Saturday morning entertainment show ‘Ministry of Mayhem’, which was later titled ‘Holly & Stephen’s Saturday Showdown’, because his dad was the director.
Speaking on the brunch-time show, the 38-year-old presenter said:
“You were about 12 years old and I was doing Saturday morning ‘Ministry of Mayhem’ and your dad was our director at the time.
I remember your dad and him bringing the boys in.”
“We’d come in every week and watch you do your thing. It was really good.”
“You’ll have to find the picture and put it out on social media.
It’s lovely to see you again.”
Tom had his ups and downs in the villa before being dumped from the island last week.
One of his lowlights included a huge bust-up with Maura Higgins when the pair were set to go into the Hideaway.
Beforehand, Tom turned to the lads and said:
“It will be interesting to see if she’s all mouth or not,” much to Maura’s disgust.
But when asked by Holly’s ‘This Morning’ co-host Phillip Schofield if he feels she “overreacted for effect”, Tom replied: “Possibly, possibly, yeah.
“If I’d have said it to her I think she would’ve reacted slightly differently, it was saying it to the boys that got her riled up.
“I don’t think I was Maura’s perfect guy either. We were the best options for each other at the time.”
