Earlier this month, Holly Willoughby took to Instagram to share some exciting news - she has written a book. Revealing to her 7.1 million followers, the This Morning host shared the temporary cover of her new book titled Reflections.

She captioned the shot: "This is a message I’ve been looking forward to sending... I’ve been working on a very special project - a book! Writing is such a personal process and between these pages you will find many little pieces of me. The book is called Reflections and is essentially thoughts and musings from me on inner and outer beauty.

"We live in a world where so much is about how we present ourselves on the outside and there is fun to be had here but true beauty comes from within… there is an alignment that needs to happen and finding that balance hasn’t always felt so easy."

The 40-year-old added: "Now, I’m finally at a point in my life where I can see a little more clearly and I want to share my truths in the hope that maybe they’ll help you too.

"This book is my celebration of how inner and outer beauty can work together in perfect harmony. 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."

"I can’t wait to share it with you all and yet can’t help but feel nervous at the same time... I think the more important something is... the scarier it feels... deep breath…"
