Holly Willoughby has admitted she was "terrified" of Simon Cowell, particularly when she had to tell him she was quitting her presenting role on 'The Xtra Factor' to join 'This Morning'

Holly Willoughby is "terrified" of Simon Cowell.

The 'This Morning' presenter has admitted she was incredibly fearful of her former boss when she told him she would be giving up her presenting role on 'The X Factor's spin-off show, 'The Xtra Factor', in 2008.

Whilst appearing alongside the ITV talent show's former judge Louis Walsh on Celebrity Juice, she said: "You were there when I told Simon I was doing 'This Morning.'"

To which Louis replied: "I was ... He said, 'Big mistake, darling.'"

It was then that the 34-year-old beauty added: "Yes, I remember. I was terrified!"

Meanwhile, Holly - who has Harry, six, Belle, four, and 11-month-old son Chester with her husband Dan Baldwin - has insisted she is "done" with having children because she keeps having to take maternity leave from her TV shows.

She said: "We keep having babies! But I am done now. I am not going anywhere."

Of her nerves on returning to live television, she added: "Coming back from maternity leave is always slightly scary. I have been away for a year from 'This Morning' and lots has changed."
