Pretty much everyone has a celebrity crush, including celebrities themselves. And Holly Willoughby was forced to reveal that she's a huge admirer of British actor James Norton on Monday's edition of This Morning. During a chat with James' Grantchester co-star Robson Green - who was on the show to promote his upcoming documentary, Robson Green Grand Slam Fishing - the presenter made the surprise revelation.
Robson, 52, teased: "You like James, don't you, Holly? You really like him, Holly, don't you? Is he on your list?" To which an embarrassed Holly replied: "I can't do this!" After Robson suggested he wasn't on this "list," the mother-of-three noted: "I do have a little list… he is a very versatile actor."

However, Holly is happily married to TV producer Dan Baldwin. The couple tied the knot in an intimate ceremony at Amberley Castle in Arundel, West Sussex on 4 August 2007. Since then they have welcomed three children together; sons Harry James and Chester William, and daughter Belle.
In a previous interview with The Sun's Fabulous magazine, Holly discussed the longevity of their marriage. She explained: "Marriage is something we have to work at. You're an idiot if you think you just get married and then you tick along happily ever after for the rest of your life. At the same time it shouldn't be too difficult, but I do believe tiredness has a lot to answer for. Everyone underestimates the effect it has on you as a couple."

"Whenever I see people breaking up shortly after they've had a baby, sometimes I wonder if they'd just given it a little bit longer or pushed through that tough bit at the beginning..." she added. "Not that I profess to know everything about other people's relationships, but I think that people may make decisions at that stage and then wish that they'd just held out or worked through it."
