Holly's Celebrity Juice co-star reveals he 'doesn't know' anything about her potential news
Keith Lemon has spoken out about those Holly Willoughby ‘pregnancy’ rumours.
If you’re not sure what we’re talking about, let us explain. This Morning‘s resident travel expert Simon Calder sparked speculation earlier this week, when he took part in a phone-in discussion about safe holiday locations.
A viewer named Lauren enquired about exotic destinations that are free from Zika. This is because the virus can be a huge risk for pregnant women, spreading to a fetus and causing severe brain malformations and birth defects.
Simon explained: ‘Zika is a nasty, mosquito-born disease. For people like me and Phillip [Schofield] it doesn’t matter at all – we might feel lousy for a few days. But anyone who is pregnant or thinking of becoming pregnant it can be quite serious.’
Of course, Simon probably just meant that neither he nor Phillip ever would ever be pregnant or planning to become so, being men and everything.
But others took his omission of Holly’s name to mean something quite different.
One viewer Tweeted: ‘#ThisMorning @thismorning ‘me and Phil are okay, but people who are pregnant or trying’ Holly? 🙈😂, while another wrote: ‘Didn’t include Holly in his comment about Zika but said it affects people who are pregnant or thinking of getting pregnant #ThisMorning.’
Hmm. It’s a bit of a stretch, but Holly – who already has three children with husband Dan Baldwin – has previously said that she’d be open to expanding her family.
She said: ‘I love being pregnant and I love having babies. I don’t want that area of my life to be over because it makes me sad to think I’d not be doing it again.’
But if Holly is hiding some happy news, it’s clear that she isn’t ready to tell the world – or even her close pals.
When asked about the ‘pregnancy’, her Celebrity Juice co-star Keith told The Sun: ‘She f***ing better not be pregnant!
‘She’s already got three and that’s as expensive on holiday enough as it is. She’s a baby machine though isn’t she? She’s always spitting them out, but she hasn’t told me she’s pregnant and I really don’t think she is.’
We think we’ll wait for Holly to make her own announcement if and when the time comes.
