'I'll Work Up Until The Labour,' Says Holly Willoughby

Pregnant This Morning presenter Holly Willoughby, 33, plans to work right up until the last minute before the birth of her third child.

The TV presenter, who is due to give birth in October, told The Sunday Mirror's Notebook magazine,

‘It's so hard to know when I'm going to go into labour. I'm just going to keep working until one day I don't come back in again. That's what I've done before.

‘My job is sat on a sofa. I'm sitting down all the time on This Morning, and on Celebrity Juice I'm behind a desk. So don't feel too sorry for me,’ she added.

Holly - already mum to Harry, five, and Belle, three - has previously spoken about wanting the sex of her unborn baby to be a surprise.
‘I really have no idea [if I’m having a boy or a girl],’ says Holly. ‘It's weird with your third. Having had one of each and both pregnancies having been pretty much the same, hand on heart, I really don't mind if I have a boy or girl. I'm lucky to have one of each, anyway. They're both wonderful. What will be will be.’

Christine Bleakley – who has previously hosted Dancing On Ice with Phillip Schofield – and The Voice presenter Emma Willis are reportedly in the running to take over when Holly goes on maternity leave.
