This Morning shock as Holly Willoughby reveals she’s related to a huge EastEnders star

HOLLY Willoughby revealed she is related to EastEnders legend Tamzin Outhwaite on This Morning today.

The 41-year-old presenter was interviewing the Mel Owen star ahead of her TV drama Ridley Road airing next month.

But speaking about her appearance on The Masked Dancer today Holly said: "I loved you so much in that.

"I clearly didn't guess who you were which is slightly embarrassing bearing in mind we are practically related."

She added: "Sorry about that" with the actress laughing: "That's all right."

The pair are related through marriage with Holly previously referring to them as cousins.

In fact they are cousins-in-law – as Holly's TV producer husband Dan Baldwin's mum and Tamzin's mum are sisters.

Tamzin appeared in EastEnders between 1998 and 2002 before returning for a second stint from 2018 to 2019.

She went on to star in BBC dramas Red Cap and New Tricks and this year appeared on The Masked Dancer as Scarecrow.

Holly first revealed her relation to the EastEnders star when she shared a family snap over Christmas in 2017.

Speaking about the 50-year-old EastEnders star, who played Mel Owen, the TV star said: "Well, she's my husband Dan's cousin. It's family init!"

Tamzin is a regular in Holly's showbiz squad, which also comprises pals Emma Bunton, Nicole Appleton and Fearne Cotton.
