If you’re a fan of TV host Holly Willoughby, you’ll probably be aware she welcomed the most adorable Golden Retriever puppy called Bailey into her family last year, with the pooch even making his debut live on This Morning.

But despite Bailey’s behaving in front of the camera, it seems his puppy dog โ€‹โ€‹ways are causing havoc in Holly’s garden!

Holly, who is due to begin hosting a new ITV show The Games next week, shared the most hilarious video of Bailey to her Instagram page, after he’d dug up her plant pots.

As Holly makes her way to the garden, Bailey is seen with mud all over his face and paws, looking VERY guilty as Krippa’s ‘Oh No’ plays in the background.

Holly’s celeb friends and fans were quick to comment and like the amusing video. Former footballer Alan Shearer wrote: ‘๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜’, with Professor Green commenting: ‘Awwwww ๐Ÿ˜’.

Makeup artist Patsy O’Neil then wrote: ‘She ๐Ÿ‘€ looks like she attempted a Dog make up session inspired by a Dalmatian ๐Ÿ˜„’. (sic)

Check out Holly Willoughby’s amazing career timeline below:

2000: S Club TV

Back when Tina was doing her dance, and Jon was looking for romance, Holly was doing a pretty impressive job as a stand in member of S Club 7 for their TV movie S Club 7: Artistic Differences. In the children’s comedy, the band split when artistic differences tore them apart (Paul heading off to start a rival band, Rachel leaving to get married) โ€“ but Holly helped keep the peace as a character named Zoe.

2004: Holly & Stephen’s Saturday Showdown AKA Ministry of Mayhem

Originally called Ministry of Mayhem, Holly and Stephen’s Saturday Showdown was a mad cap CiTV game show that saw the show hosts camp it up as housemates that welcomed boys and girls teams in to their living room for an assortment of competitions.

It is also the setting where Holly met her future husband, Dan Baldwin (they tied the knot in 2007 and have three children), and gave co-host Stephen Mulhern a platform to show off his magic skills. Fancy!

2005: CD:UK

Now we’re not saying Cat Deeley can be replaced… but Holly was a pretty great successor to the fellow 40-year-old TV host. Holly helped many a hungover adult get through Saturday morning’s by presenting the children’s music chart show.

2006: Dancing on Ice

A glimpse of what was to come โ€“ Holly was paired with hosting icon Philip Schofield on the ice skating dance show that saw celebrities compete on skates under the tutelage of Olympic legends Torvill and Dean. Holly and Phil’s warm chemistry was a hit with fans โ€“ pulling in over 12 million viewers at the show’s peak.

2008: XtraFactor

After Fearne Cotton but before Konnie Huq, Holly hosted The X Factor spin off show the year that music fans were thrilled by the likes of Alexandra Burke, JLS and Diana Vickers. The star arguably co-hosted with her first son de ella, Harry, as she was pregnant with him while the show aired in 2008 โ€“ with her first baby de ella arriving in May the following year. She returned to host again for series six โ€“ which was when Joe McElderry won.

2009: Celebrity Juice

The mad cap mayhem of presenting children’s television shows was probably a good training ground for Holly to deal with the juvenile antics of Keith Lemon (aka Avid Merrion). Holly serves as a team captain on the bonkers late night game show with her best friend Fearne Cotton championing her opposing team. The trio were a hit with viewers, until Fearne announced her departure from her from the show in December 2018.

2009: This Morning

As well as delighting late night viewers, 2009 saw Holly enter the weekday TV format as she started hosting This Morning with Philip Schofield after the departure of Fern Britton. Fans of the pair have seen their friendship blossom on-screen as they still present together to this day โ€“ and have helped the magazine entertainment show scoop NTA, TRIC, TV Choice, and Freesat Awards along the way.

2012: The Voice UK

Holly and Reggie Yates were the face of The Voice when it first launched in the UK on the BBC back in 2012. The duo held the show together for the first two years and worked alongside show coaches Sir Tom Jones,, Jessie J and Danny O’Donoghue as they found champions Leanne Mitchell in 2012 and Andrea Begley in 2013.

2012: SurpriseSurprise

When the long-running show was resurrected in 2012, Holly seemed like the natural choice to fill the shoes of Cilla Black. With her approachable demeanor and warm personality, Holly shone as she fronts the light entertainment show as members of the public have dreams made true.

2016: Meet the Parents

Proving herself as one of the hardest working women in showbiz, Holly doesn’t slow down when the weekend arrives despite hosting This Morning four days per week. The hostess has most recently been helping singletons find love on the ITV dating show that sees parents vet prospective dates for their children.

2018: Coronation Street

In 2018, Holly had a cameo in the beloved ITV soap Coronation Street, along with her co-host Phillip Schofield. The pair interviewed the characters of Rosie Webster, Craig Tinker and Gemma Winter as part of Rosie’s exit storyline.

2018: I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!

When Ant McPartlin announced he would be stepping down from all TV duties to focus on his addiction recovery, Holly was the first choice by Declan Donnelly to replace him. She was a HUGE hit with viewers – and many even called for her to have a full-time role on the show in the future.

2019-2020: Dancing On Ice

As well as presenting This Morning Monday-Thursday with Phillip Schofield, Holly also returned to the ice when Dancing On Ice made a comeback in 2019. Both Holly and Phillip then returned for the 2020 series, which ended in March.

2021: Reflections

In early April 2021, Holly revealed that she would be taking an extra week off from This Morning to work on a secret project, with Rochelle Humes keeping her side of the sofa warm. A week later, the star announced that the secret project was in fact a brand new book, called Reflections, set to be released in October.

2021: Take Off

Holly joined forces with Bradley Walsh in July 2021 to host BBC game show Take Off, with the pair trying to make people’s holiday dreams come true.


In September 2021, Holly announced that she is embarking on a brand new career project as she launched WYLDE MOON.
Holly described WYLDE MOON as ‘a space full of things that I love and people that inspire me… from beauty and fashion, to energy and healing.’ She also said: ‘In creating WYLDE MOON for you, I’ve filled a need in me. I’d lost a part of who I was and that rediscovery has led me here, to a whole new place of beauty and power’.

2022: (borrowed from) The Wild perfume

On 8th February 2022, Holly revealed that her first perfume (borrowed from) The Wild had officially been released! Admitting that she has been wearing the perfume since the day she got the scent, Holly revealed (borrowed from) The Wild ‘enlivens the senses with notes of Bergamot, Geranium, Blackcurrant, Jasmine, Rose and Mint.’

2022: Freeze The Fear

Holly was absent on This Morning for a number of weeks at the start of 2022 so she could take part in BBC reality show Freeze the Fear with Wim Hof.

Holly took part alongside the likes of Lee Mack, Tamzin Outhwaite and Gabby Logan, as the celebs embarked on a once-in-a-lifetime adventure in the Italian mountains in sub-zero conditions.

2022: The Games

Holly will host brand new ITV show The Games in May 2022, which involves 12 celebrities taking part in Olympic Game style activities to be crowned the winner!

It was back in November last year when Holly introduced the world to Bailey, taking him to work with her on set of This Morning.

Bailey, who looked extremely calm and natural in front of the camera, melted the hearts of viewers, with Holly saying at the time: “We have a very special visitor here in the studio today. I’m delighted to introduce you to the newest member of my family, this is Bailey, who has sort of fallen asleep.”

Holly has since kept fans up to date with Bailey’s mischievous life, revealing on Instagram back in March that he’d ‘ate her hoover’.

The mum-of-three wrote: ‘Dyson updateโ€ฆ my dog โ€‹โ€‹ate my hooverโ€ฆ ๐Ÿฅด’.

We love Bailey! ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿถ
