Holly Willoughby’s heartbreaking family tragedy as beloved grandmother dies

The This Morning presenter took to Instagram to pay tribute to her grandmother as she prepared to say goodbye

Holly Willoughby has revealed her family’s heartbreak after her beloved grandmother passed away.

Sharing a picture of them together on Instagram , the This Morning host wrote: “Today we say goodbye for a little while to my beautiful Nan… go and be with Grandad… he’s been waiting for you… love you… miss you…”

The presenter’s fans reached out to her.

One said: “Thoughts with you all”

“Thinking of you,” another told her.

Holly’s beautiful gran was a big part of her life.

Back in 2017, she shared a picture of them together, telling her fans she was the “chief” of the family .

Holly captioned the sweet snap: “And the chief girl of the family.. my nan!”

Fans were quick to point out their resemblance, with one saying: “You’re so like her”.

Another called them both “Beautiful”.

Holly will not be on This Morning today, with Rylan Clark-Neal stepping in to cover while she says goodbye to her beloved gran.

The star is very close to her family, and has spoken before about how she turns to her mum for help and advice.

She once told the Mirror: “I still run everything past her. If I’m about to buy a pair of shoes, I’ll go, ‘Mum, do you think I should be doing this?’ It’s silly. I’m a fully grown woman, of course I can buy shoes. But I still like to talk to her about everything.”
