Holly Willoughby admits she is "humbled" to be presenting 'Surprise, Surprise' and regularly cried during filming
Holly Willoughby finds fronting 'Surprise, Surprise' "humbling".
The 'This Morning' host is delighted to have taken over from Cilla Black as presenter of a revamped version of the hit show and she admits she couldn't help but get swept up in the emotion of the programme.
She said: "People keep saying to me, 'How can the reunions be the same, given there is social networking?' But what we've found is that now when people lose touch, they have lost hope of being reunited.
"There are moments when I do cry, as it's emotional. Doing this show is humbling."
Holly - who is joined on the show by roving reporters Dave Berry and Kian Egan - was a big fan of the original show when she was younger.
She added to Hello! magazine: "I loved watching the show when I was younger. I have lots of memories of sitting with my family in front of the telly to watch it.
"It is an amazing programme and when I was asked to present it I was over the moon. But Cilla's shoes are hard ones to fill and I don't want to disappoint anyone."
