BAFTAs TV 2019: Holly Willoughby celebrates with older sister Kelly as they pick up an award during star-studded ceremony
- Holly triumphed in the Reality & Constructed Factual award category for I’m A Celebrity… Get me Out Of Here!
- The This Morning presenter shared the award with her older sister, who accompanied her to the event
- While Holly is a household name, Kelly is a successful author who has also worked in TV production
- Kelly previously admitted that she enjoys Holly’s mammoth success as a television presenter
They’re exceptionally close, with the This Morning host even admitting that can chat on the phone up to seven times a day.
And Holly Willoughby and her sister Kelly Willoughby got even closer on Sunday night as they shared BAFTA TV Awards at the prestigious ceremony held at London’s Royal Festival Hall.
The presenter, 38, later took to Instagram to share the good news after attending the Southbank ceremony with her 40-year old sibling.
Congratulations! Holly Willoughby and her sister Kelly Willoughby picked up a BAFTA TV Award at the prestigious ceremony held at London’s Royal Festival Hall on Sunday
Holly uploaded a glamorous photo of the pair beaming to the camera as they clutched a BAFTA award between them.
She captioned the image, writing: ‘Just dreamy sharing tonight’s @bafta with my sister @ladywilloughby and also being reunited with Medic Bob! … miss that dude!’
The star also shared a snap of herself posing with I’m A Celebrity medic Bob McCarron, who makes regular appearances in the ITV show.
Kelly meanwhile had earlier shared a snap of the pair ahead of the awards, with the author wishing her little sister good luck.
She later uploaded a picture of herself holding Holly’s BAFTA award up to her face, alongside the caption: ‘I thank you.’
Winning sisters: The presenter, 38, took to Instagram following the rewards to share the good news that both she and her sibling, 40, were recipients of the coveted golden gong
She did it! Kelly later uploaded a picture of herself holding Holly’s BAFTA award up to her face, alongside the caption: ‘I thank you’
Holly previously admitted there’s no sense of sibling rivalry between them, gushing that they are ‘best friends’.
‘We talk six or seven times a day and because we’ve never chased the same dream or wanted the same thing, there’s a complete lack of competitiveness with each other,’ she told You magazine.
Speaking about their relationship to the Guardian in 2014, she added: ‘We’re more like friends than sisters. We even bought a place together in Putney.
‘You would expect some fireworks, but because we have the same friends and have different roles within that group, none of that ever came into it.
‘I’m more likely to be the one to say, ‘everyone back to mine’ and cook for everyone, whereas she’s much better at tidying up.’

While Holly enjoys a hugely successful career in television, Kelly has won plaudits in her own right thanks to the ongoing School for Stars book series, which she co-writes with her sister.
An Exeter university graduate, Kelly has also worked in TV production – but she admits being the exact opposite of her more famous sibling.
She told the Guardian: ‘I’m organised and regimented; Holly is messy. Like chalk and cheese we excelled at different things at school. She loved drama and was really good at art. I loved English. Even to look at we’re polar opposites. She’s blonde and I’m dark.
‘People say, “Come on, you must have fought a bit, growing up?” But we didn’t. I was the postman, and Holly was all the characters coming into the shop.’
Besties: ‘We talk six or seven times a day and because we’ve never chased the same dream or wanted the same thing, there’s a complete lack of competitiveness with each other’
Kelly added that she enjoys Holly’s mammoth success as a television presenter and enjoys cashing in on the blonde bombshell’s freebies.
‘If Holly can afford to treat me to lunch at Nobu, or a lovely trip somewhere, great; she’s hugely generous,’ she said.
‘She already lends me designer bags on a rotating basis, and if only our feet were the same size, I would be the happiest sister on earth.’
Holly picked up a gong for her role in last year’s I’m A Celebrity – which won the Reality & Constructed Factual award.
Presenter Ant McPartlin reluctantly joined his stage partner Declan Donnelly and Holly on-stage as they went up to accept the gong.
Last year, the embattled star took a lengthy hiatus from screens to battle his addiction woes during which Holly took over his presenting role on the ITV reality show.
Winner: While it’s not clear which category she won her prize for, Holly picked up a gong for her role in last year’s I’m A Celebrity – which won the Reality & Constructed Factual award
Ant made a return to television screens earlier in May for the new Britain’s Got Talent as he makes a comeback to the showbiz circuit following a tough year.
The presenter has returned to Britain’s Got Talent after he took a step back from his work commitments last year.
He was arrested for drink-driving in March last year and his presenting partner Dec hosted the live Britain’s Got Talent shows solo.
Holly stood in for him during his I’m A Celeb absence – winning huge praise for her turn on the show – and it seems he was keen she won praise.
You ok? Ant McPartlin reluctantly joined his stage partner Declan Donnelly and Holly Willoughby on-stage at Sunday’s BAFTAs to accept an award for I’m A Celeb
Nominated: Last year, the embattled star took a lengthy hiatus from screens to battle his addiction woes during which Holly took over his presenting role on the ITV reality show
Taking to the stage, alongside Ant and Holly, Dec said: ‘Thank you thank you very much . Thank you for ITV for your continued support. Thank you everyone this obvs goes to a very hard and dedicated production team both here and in Australia…
‘I’d like to say thank you to Holly for helping me out last year standing in for Ant, who has reluctantly come in here tonight, because he’s still part of the team obviously.’
The BAFTA TV Awards is an annual celebration of the best British and international viewing offered to UK audiences.
Way back when: Holly stood in for him during his I’m A Celeb absence – winning huge praise for her turn on the show – and it seems he was keen she won praise
This year, BBC America’s Killing Eve swept the board with three awards, with the hit thriller series’ leading star Jodie Comer winning Best Leading Actress, while her co-star Sandra Oh was also nominated for the gong.
The spy-action thriller also won the Drama Series award, as well as Best Supporting Actress for Fiona Shaw, who plays Carolyn Martens, and had also been nominated for Best Supporting Actor for Kim Bodnia, who plays Konstantin.
Sadly the show also lost out on the award for Must-See Moment, which is voted for by the public, with its chilling last scene when Eve, played by Oh, stabs Villanelle, played by Comer.
