Holly Willoughby's Fans Are Just Finding Out She's Related To Tamzin Outhwaite

Holly Willoughby fans are just finding out that she's related to a famous EastEnders veteran.

Yep, the This Morning host has family ties with none-other than actress, Tamzin Outhwaite.

It's a small world, eh?!

Holly, 40, revealed the connection on her Instagram this morning, telling fans that she couldn't wait to have Mel Owen star Tamzin, 50, on the ITV show, and revealing that she's her "cousin-in-law".

"Morning Monday… Joined by my beautiful cousin-in law today @glamzin," she wrote.

Holly is related to Tamzin through her TV producer husband, Daniel Baldwin, because his mother and Tamzin's mother are sisters.

They've also shared several photographs over the years, including an adorable snap with Dan's relative, Nanny Linda.

But some fans are still unaware that they're actually family.

Previously talking about their link on This Morning back in 2019, Tamzin laughed and admitted that her six-year-old daughter was also confused by it.

“I was trying to explain this to my six-year-old last night watching Dancing On Ice,’ she said.

"She’s like 'Aunty Holly’s on! Is she actually my auntie?' And I said 'No, she’s married to Dan. Dan’s my first cousin.’

"She said: 'Well does that mean she’s my second cousin?' and I said, 'Well probably through family.’

“You’re my cousin-in-law,” Tamzin added.

Tamzin was married to Lucifer star Tom Ellis, 42, for eight years before divorcing back in 2014.

The actress is now dating new beau of three years, Tom Child, 28.
