Holly: I miss Xtra Factor loads

Holly Willoughby has confessed she misses her role on The Xtra Factor "big time".

The This Morning presenter admitted she loved being a part of the ITV2 show, which she hosted in 2008 and 2009.

But the mum-of-one, who attended the TV Choice Awards on Monday night, said she has enjoyed devoting more time to family life.

Asked if she missed The Xtra Factor, Holly nodded and said: "Big time. I love it, I love the show, I loved being part of it."

"But at some point you had to make a decision whether or not you were just going to work your entire life or whether actually some of the other things in your life are important too," she said.

"So I've just had the best summer with my son and my husband and had a really great time so, you know."

She said she continues to watch the show, and is impressed by her successor Konnie Huq.

"Konnie is brilliant. I have watched it, of course I'm going to watch it. She's doing a really good job and the team behind her are so brilliant - I've worked with them for the last two years - so she's in such safe hands."
