Some may say, Holly Willoughby – presenter of ITV’s This Morning – has become a national treasure after spending years on British television.

But her talents don’t stop there, she’s also a model and has even launched a number of fashion collections over the years.

Most importantly though, she’s not afraid to speak up about matters that are close to her heart, which is why the announcement of her new book has got the internet so excited.

As celebrities go, Holly is notoriously protective of her personal life, so the new tome, titled Reflections, is eagerly anticipated as it's set to give fans a sought after look into the star’s life away from the cameras.

Based on the presenter’s announcement, the tell-all autobiography is likely to be a candid discussion about body image and burnout, along with other thoughts and musings from the star on all things inner and outer beauty.

This is an exciting and empowering move by the presenter, who announced the news on Instagram alongside a picture of the temporary cover, noting that she’s now at a point in her life where she feels confident to celebrate her own beauty and hopes to help others to do the same.

In the post, she wrote: “I hope this book will start conversations, whether they’re about how to find your signature lipstick, reclaim your sexuality, or treat yourself more kindly – and, ultimately, what it means to feel beautiful, confident, complete.”

It may come as a surprise, but the star has also written a range of other fiction and non-fiction titles, which we’ve rounded up below. Read on to learn more about them and to find out everything there is to know about her new release, Reflections, including how to pre-order it now.

‘Reflections’ by Holly Willoughby, published by Cornerstone

For the first time, Holly reflects on the ways we navigate difficult situations as a society, and how treat ourselves in this tell-all book. Uncovering high topical and emotional issues, such as body image, burnout and control, the presenter hopes her new tome will encourage meaningful conversations.

Reflections is currently available for pre-order ahead of publication on 28 October 2021. Owing to its eagerly anticipated nature, we predict it’ll be a hit, so we recommend beating the crowds and pre-ordering now. What’s more, Waterstones is selling a signed copy, which you will receive on the day it’s published.

‘The Best Friends’ Guide to Life’ by Fearne Cotton and Holly Willoughby, published by Ebury Publishing

Having grown up together from fresh-faced kid’s presenters to TV sweethearts, there’s no denying Holly and Fearne’s friendship. As such, the pair wrote a book about the secrets to friendship – covering everything from leaving home to starting a new job. We think this would make a great gift for any young fans.

‘Truly Happy Baby ... It Worked for Me’ by Holly Willoughby, published by Thorsons

The mum-of-three released this practical parenting guide in 2016. It covers everything from breastfeeding and bottle formulas to weaning and sleeping, as well as a comprehensive guide to buying cots. Her other title, Truly Scrumptious Baby (£13.29, Amazon.co.uk), is the follow-up and is a guide to feeding and weaning for babies aged six months and older.

‘School of Stars: First Term at L’Etoile’ by Holly Willoughby and Kelly Willoughby, published by Orion Children’s Books

The first children’s fiction book written by Holly and her sister Kelly, the School for Stars series is set at L’Etoile, a prestigious boarding school, which spends half the day teaching traditional curriculum subjects and the afternoon on the arts. With clear themes of performing arts and the dreams of a life where stardom is guaranteed, this is suited to children aged nine and older. There are eight books in the series, so plenty to keep them occupied.
