Holly Willoughby reveals that she meditates twice a day

Holly Willoughby has implied she isn’t always herself on TV thanks to trying to avoid being cancelled.

The This Morning presenter “waters down” her opinions sometimes when she feels the potential backlash isn’t worth it.

Holly, 40, is known for discussing a wide range of issues with her co-host Phillip Schofield on the ITV show, often also interviewing politicians and controversial figures.

Writing in her new memoir Reflections, via an extract published by The Sun, the broadcaster admits she alters her television personality at times to cater to other people’s vision of her.

The mum-of-three writes: “To fit in with other people’s expectations of me, I have ended up simplifying myself and swallowing my voice so that I stay in the pigeonhole I’m expected to sit in.

“This can mean watering myself down. The moment you have an opinion or come down hard on one side of a debate or the other, in somebody’s eyes it will be seen as controversial or wrong.

“I err on the side of caution because I want to go home and be a mum and focus on other things in my life.

The Dancing on Ice presenter then goes on to explain how it “can be scary” to speak your own truth which can result in using other people’s opinions for ease.

“But every time you do that, you lose sight of your own,” she adds.

“You don’t know what you want anymore. You don’t know how you feel.”

Holly is happily married to her TV producer husband Dan Baldwin, with whom she shares three children, Harry, 12, Belle, 10, and Chester, seven.

The doting mum very rarely shares snaps of her offspring, opting to conceal their faces when she does post a rare picture on social media.

The ITV star didn’t water down her opinion on children’s privacy when discussing the matter on This Morning earlier this year.

Following the discussion surrounding Meghan Markle’s interview with Oprah Winfrey, Holly backed the Duchess of Sussex and said everyone has a right to ‘basic privacy’.

She said: “I think everyone has a basic right to privacy. Basic.

“There’s no one who’s on Instagram or social media that would say: ‘Because I shared this one picture, that entitles you to have my entire camera roll. Go ahead and look through it.’

“No one would want that. So it’s about boundaries. And it’s about respect.”

The Dancing on Ice presenter then went on to explain why she deliberately conceals her children’s faces from the spotlight.

“I choose not to show my children’s faces because I know that’s the deal. If you show one photograph then they’re out there,” she admitted while chatting on the mid-morning show.

The blonde beauty added: “They’re for consumption for everybody. Which is why I choose not to do it.”

Last month, Holly confessed to “not knowing” who she was at times when launching her new wellness brand, Wylde Moon.

Explaining how she embraced meditation and all thing spiritual in Australia, the broadcaster added: “I truly think it’s all about finding what works for you, whether that’s going for a run, talking to a friend, or drowning yourself in a bottle of wine.

But you have to work out what you’re masking and how you’re processing stuff.”
