What is Holly Willoughby's net worth and salary?

Holly Willoughby is an English television presenter and model who has a net worth of $8 million. Holly Willoughby began modeling professionally while in her early teens, after being spotted by a talent scout at a clothing exhibition. She went on to appear in various advertisements and editorials, as well as appearing in such magazines as More!, Just Seventeen, and Mizz. After a down period in the early 2000s, she made a successful foray into presenting for children's television. The Saturday morning program, "Ministry of Mayhem", was subsequently renamed "Holly and Stephen's Saturday Showdown", as she and co-presenter Stephen Mulhern had become quite popular. After the run of the show ended in 2006, she moved on to presenting for primetime television, and has since served as host or presenter for such programs as "Dancing on Ice', "Celebrity Wrestling: Bring It On", "Lip Service" and "The Xtra Factor." Her longstanding role as a co-host on ITV's 'This Morning' alongside Phillip Schofield has solidified her place as a national television icon.


In 2017 it was revealed through public filings that up to that point, Holly Willoughby's salary was 250,000 pounds, which was roughly a third of the 700,000 pounds that was being earned by her "This Morning" co-host Phillip Schofield. At that contract negotiation, Holly's salary was matched to Schofields, so today Holly's salary is equal to around $865,000.
