Holly Willoughby In Crisis Talks With ITV Over Earnings Row With Old Management Team.
Holly Willoughby is in crisis talks with ITV on This Morning due to her former management company’s “extortionate” demands over her salary and she could even quit over it. It is understood her old team wants a stake of her earnings despite no longer representing her, according to a report from The SUN.
The 40-year-old, who hosts the popular show alongside Phil Schofield, is said to be preparing to go to court with the group over their reported demands of £200,000 worth of her earnings per year.
It’s thought Holly earns an estimated £600,000 at present from her This Morning contract after she joined Phil at the helm in 2009. When Holly split from her former management company YMU, which still represents Phil, she set up her own, named Roxy Management, instead.
An insider pointed out that Holly left YMU and set up her own firm, Roxy Management, in order to ‘take back control’ of her future.
Of Holly’s current predicament, the source told The Sun: ‘She loves This Morning, and really doesn’t want to leave. She is committed to the show but has been given no choice but to discuss her options moving forwards. She wants to stand up for women, and won’t roll over when it comes to unfair renegotiations.
‘She has spoken to ITV execs and explained the situation – in essence, she said she’d rather leave the show than let YMU take such a high percentage of her earnings when they aren’t entitled to it.’
The source also revealed that Holly “adores Phillip” and does not want to leave This Morning – but would do so if she had no other option. It’s reported ITV do not want Holly to leave and so will be doing everything in their power to keep her at the helm.

Ron actually started his working career as an Ophthalmic Technician- things changed when, during a band rehearsal, his amplifier blew up and he couldn’t get it fixed so he took a course at Birmingham University and ended up doing a degree course. He built up a chain of electronics stores and sold them as a franchise over 35 years ago. After five years touring the world Ron decided to move to Spain with his wife and son, a place they had visited over the years, and only bought the villa they live in because it has a guitar-shaped swimming pool!.
Playing the guitar since the age of 7, he can often be seen, (and heard!) at beach bars and clubs along the length of the coast. He has always been interested in the news and constantly thrives to present his articles in an interesting and engaging way.
Lucky she isnt in Spain.
The tax office here would take around 70% of it.
