Holly Willoughby is concerned about where the new generation of TV presenters are going to come from because there is no longer any live children's TV on Saturday mornings

Holly Willoughby wants live children's TV to return to Saturday mornings.

The 32-year-old beauty started her TV career as host of CITV's entertainment show 'Ministry of Mayhem' in 2004 and 'CD:UK' in 2005, but with a lack of such programmes around nowadays she is concerned about where the next generation of presenters will come from.

She told Radio Times magazine: "I do think it's a shame there's no live Saturday morning children's TV any more. Most presenters now - me and Reggie Yates, Fearne Cotton, Phil Schofield, Cat Deeley, Ant and Dec - came from kids' telly. So you do wonder where the next generation will come from."

But before landing a presenting role on 'Ministry of Mayhem', Holly acted in 'S Club 7: Artistic Differences' - in which she played a character called Zoe alongside members of the group - and the blonde star is keen to return to acting, setting her sights on a role in period drama 'Downton Abbey'.

She added: "It's all about putting on a corset and a big frou-frou dress, isn't it? I love all that girlie stuff."
