The This Morning presenter left fans a little confused when she appeared to compare her own life to a guest commenting on 'cheating' husbands...
Viewers were left a little confused yesterday when This Morning presenter, Holly Willoughby, seemed to compare her own life to a woman whose husband cheated on her.
Along with co-presenter Phillip Schofield, the 35-year-old was interviewing an anonymous woman who recently found out her husband had been having an affair with another man after 10 years of marriage.
The shock comment came after the guest told the ITV presenters that she didn’t see her husband much because she was working in the City and often got home late. The guest went on: “I believe he was being blackmailed, his behaviour became more and more erratic.
“I was a Samaritan at the time and I was talking to a number of people in his position and the more they were telling me the more I suddenly realised this was happening in my own home.”
This is the point where Holly jumped in, commenting: “This sounds like my life.”
A confused looking Phillip then turned to look at his co-presenter, but Holly just carried on listening intently to the guest’s story, seemingly unphased by the whole thing.
Holly married her TV producer husband, Dan Baldwin, 40, in 2007 and the couple have three children together. The loved up pair also jetted off to Portugal on a family holiday to celebrate their ninth wedding anniversary last month, so ITV viewers were quick to react to the puzzling comment.

One wrote on Facebook: “Did she say ‘sounds like my life’!? Hopefully she’s talking about the past and not present!”
While another said: “No man in there right mind would cheat on her. They would be mad.”
Despite all the confusion, a source close to the star spoke to The Sun to clear the whole thing up. They said:”Holly was just finishing the guest’s sentence when she said ‘it sounds like my life’.
“She was engaging with her guest and empathising just like she always does.”
So it looks like Holly was just being as professional as ever. Phew.
