Holly and Brad take off to the BBC

Just for Christmas mind, not for life. (September 2019)

I'm sure some Daily Express journalist is getting very excited about this major defection to the BBC, but a new show with Holly Willoughby and Bradley Walsh (produced by Hungry Bear, aka Mr Willoughby) has been announced.

Before you finish writing that "HOLLY AND BRAD QUIT ITV", it is just a single one-hour show for Christmas - basically sounds like Brad and Holly's Christmas Presents crossed with the Place on a Plane part of Saturday Night Takeaway. Guess it'll air either before or after the Strictly final.

Turns out nobody had 2020 vision.

Holly in working on a show produced by her husband's company shocker!

I'm surprised Holly isn't golden handcuffed.

Bradley Walsh though is already on the BBC, as he's part of the current Doctor Who cast. So no paper should be saying he's quitting ITV just because he's doing a BBC show.

I wonder if Holly SHUNNED Philip Schofield, leaving viewers in SHOCK?

It's not even Holly's first BBC primetime show as she did The Voice back in 2012.

There can't be many stars that have those sorts of deal anymore.

I don’t think it would be fair to call it nepotism though, she is one of the biggest stars on UK TV. It’s probably more just as much the case of Holly doing it for her husband than the other way around. The BBC or any production would love to have those two fronting such a show.

It's not as if she got into TV as a result of that connection, they meet through working together.

I daresay plenty of other producers have "go-to" talent that they like working with and with book where they can.
Write that down in your copybook now.

The BBC is hoping Holly will DEFECT to the BBC to present her OWB daytime RIVAL show and become The One Show relief presenter. Its hoped to bring in MILLIONS more viewers.
My contribution is small but you are welcome.

Would this be the first show Bradley has presented for BBC TV. I can't think of anything else though he may have fronted the lottery show in the past, though I might be mixing him up with Brian Conley.

Interesting to see Bradders fronting a show on the BBC. I've always thought he would have been a perfect host for The Generation Game revamp, but seemed too much of an ITV face to do it. Now it seems like there's more of a possibility, if this is just a start.

The lottery was actually his first presenting job.
