Holly Willougby shares throwback snap with her rarely-seen lookalike sister

HOLLY Willougby has shared a throwback snap with her rarely-seen lookalike sister.

The This Morning star, 40, gave fans a glimpse of Kelly, 42, on Instagram.


Kelly originally shared photos of the siblings pulling excited faces as she celebrated the release of their co-written children books series, School for Stars.

She captioned them: "Throwback @hollywilloughby #schoolforstars children’s book series 💖💘💫🌙."

Holly re-posted it onto her Instagram Story and also replied: "Aw love this!"

In 2013, Holly and Kelly decided to write a children's book together – and while it might strain most relationships, it brought them closer together.

That first book has now grown into an eight book series.

The inseparable sisters struggled being apart during lockdown last year – with Holly publicly telling Kelly "I miss you so much" after she shared an Easter poem written by her sibling during the first lockdown in Spring.

The Brighton-born pair have always been incredibly close.

In one photo from a childhood holiday, Holly rushes to copy her sister's salute to the camera.

Speaking to the Express in 2010, Holly revealed that she and Kelly never tried to outshine each other when they attended Burgess Hill School for Girls in Sussex.

She said: "Kelly was really bright and academic.

"She was head girl of the school and at the top of her year. Because we were so different, we were never in competition."

When Kelly tied the knot 10 years ago, it was a no-brainer that Holly would be her chief bridesmaid.

In a chat with the Guardian, Holly said of her sister: “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.”

For Holly's birthday in 2018, Kelly – who works as a children's writer – wrote a gushing Instagram post for her little sister and opened up about their close relationship.

For Kelly's 41st birthday in May last year, Holly sadly wasn't able to see her – but she did post a touching tribute on Instagram.

She wrote: "LOVE you to pieces… can’t wait to give you a huge squeeze when we can… have the best day… see you on Zoom!"
