Holly Willoughby might be looking slimmer than ever, but the TV presenter has remained tight-lipped on how she achieved her body transformation.
But luckily for her fans, Holly’s pal Keith Lemon has a big mouth and revealed exactly what she did to lose the weight.
And according to the Celebrity Juice host, it’s all down to boxing sessions.
Lemon even insisted that Holly could bring out a fitness DVD.

“I’ve heard a rumour that it’s some sort of boxing,” he told The Sun .
“I asked if she was going to be bringing a fitness DVD out, because everyone’s going to be saying, ‘I want a body like Holly Willoughby!”
He added: “Ages ago she came back from holiday and I said she’d lost weight, I could see it in her face.
“Then everyone picked up on it, and we were at a party a while later and I said “I bet you’re sick to death of everyone asking you how you’ve lost it…but how have you lost it?”
“Holly’s always been a total babe.”

But while the mum of three has kept schtum about the diet and fitness methods behind her weight loss, she did reveal that she’s feeling “happy and healthy” in her new shape.
In an interview with her ITV co-star Lorraine Kelly last year, Holly said it was as her children grew older that she was able to focus on herself once again.
“But I think as long as you’re happy and healthy that’s most important,” she said, before joking that she still has her famous “Willough-boobies” despite shedding the pounds.

Holly, 36, has been stealthily losing weight since the birth of her third child Chester in September 2014.
But it’s only in the last few months that her shape has really transformed, helped in no small part by a wardrobe makeover that saw her ditch the old-fashioned frocks she loved and move on to a more modern look, with waist-nipping dresses and mini skirts that suit her hourglass figure.
It was previously thought the secret behind her toned tum, arms and legs was pilates.

The simple form of exercise combines stretching and balance movements that improve core strength and can lead to better posture and flexibility.
While pilates by itself doesn’t necessarily result in weight loss, it can be combined with diet and other exercise to shed the pounds.
And Holly’s own pilates instructor revealed that the This Morning star came to her in 2011 after the birth of her second child Belle to strengthen her core and get her body back to its pre-baby form.

“I worked with Holly for several months, teaching her privately at her home once a week,” said pilates expert Lynne Robinson, owner of Body Control Pilates.
“Holly had postnatal matt work classes, which concentrated on strengthening and toning her core.”
Lynne went on: “The exercises help trim the waist and flatten the stomach.”
Among the exercises Holly does are slow arm lifts above the head while holding a towel and assisted curl-ups using a pillow.

However, Holly will continue to keep quiet about her diet and fitness secrets as she’s worried her comments could encourage eating disorders among her followers.
“I try not to focus too much on my appearance,” she said in summer 2016.
“I’m quite active and I try not to let the way I look be the main focus because it’s not the important thing.
“As long as I’m being healthy, that’s good enough for me.”
