Hosting a live morning telly show most days means the nation’s sweetheart Holly Willoughby struggles to hide much from fans.
But the This Morning presenter has let fans in on a little known secret as she gave them a rare glimpse of a concealed piercing.
Taking to her Instagram, Holly, 39, shared an ultra glam selfie with her 6.9 million followers earlier this week.
The gorgeous mum-of-three showed off the work of her make-up artist Patsy O’Neill and hairstylist Ciler Peksah as she posed for the snap.
Eagle-eyed fans noticed a sneaky double piercing in her right earlobe as she tucked her blonde locks behind her ear to show off her berry-coloured lipstick.
The telly star gave fans a glimpse of her huggy-style gold hoop earring with tiny dangling pendant detail in her first piecing hole, as well as a sweet gold star stud in her second.
Holly rarely wears earrings but it’s thought she got her second piercing addition when she got her ears re-pierced live on This Morning back in March.
Brave Holly was filmed screaming the morning telly show while getting her ears re-pierced live on air.
Co-star Phillip Schofield started gagging and jokingly rushed off to be sick after watching needles and tubes going into some guests’ ears during a segment on the top piercing trends for 2020 – leaving Holly feeling very nervous.
As worried Holly hopped on the bed she explained that she first head her ears pierced aged 12 but she practically has to re-pierce them every time she puts an earring in.
Holly admitted the pain is so bad that she doesn’t usually wear earrings, only on a Sunday during Dancing on Ice.
As Samantha Hayler, Head Piercer, Astrid and Miyu, started preparing her ear, Holly was horrified that she could see herself on the screen.
While her ear was being clipped, Holly said: “Oh god you guys are really brave and I feel I’m going to let myself down. Do people pass out?”
A close-up then showed the needle going into Holly’s ear as she tried to remain calm.
Squeamish Phil then shouted: “Needle, needle alert. What are you thinking guys. Tell me what you’re going to cut to.”
Holly took in a deep breathe then started squeaking as the camera zoomed in on the tube in her ear that surrounds the noodle.
“OK that was a little pinch,” confessed Holly. “Yeah that was fine. What’s that in my ear? That’s not an earring. That was a lot more pressure and hurt a lot more than I thought it was going to be.”
Holly admitted it wasn’t as bad as expected but started crying out when she realised there was another ear to go.
