Holly Willoughby has said she has not always been totally confident in her looks and would not leave the house without mascara on when she was younger.

The TV presenter, 37, said she has grown more comfortable with her appearance as she has got older.

She told Red magazine: “I feel like now I’m getting older, I’m much happier with my face as it is now than when I was younger.

“There was a time where I wouldn’t go out of the house without at least putting mascara on.

“Now I literally don’t care.

“I’m not afraid of how I look in the mirror.”

Willoughby is known for her sense of style and items she wears in public or on This Morning often sell out in the shops.

The star said: “On This Morning, you can actually see what’s being worn.

“It’s an honest way of seeing what an item of clothing looks like. Also, I’m not completely straight up and down, I’m curvy, so I think I’m sort of a normal shape, wearing normal clothes. That makes people go, ‘Oh yes, I might look like that in that’.”

The star juggles her television career with being a mother to three children.

Willoughby, who is currently in Australia co-hosting I’m A Celebrity… with Declan Donnelly, told the magazine that she has never been interested in “having it all”.

“I think the biggest misconception about me is that people seem to think that I want it all and that I had it all and I walked away from having it all,” she said.

“That was never part of it. I never wanted it all.”
