TV presenter Holly Willoughby has admitted she wants to play a saucy teacher in 'Hollyoaks'
Holly Willoughby wants to play a saucy teacher in 'Hollyoaks'.
The 36-year-old beauty - who is best known as the co-host of 'This Morning' alongside Phillip Schofield - has revealed she would relish the opportunity to star in a British soap and confessed to having one very specific role in mind.
Holly said: "I'd love to do soaps.
"I did speak to 'This Morning's soap expert the other day because she writes for 'Emmerdale' and I said 'what would you cast me in' and she said she would cast me in 'Hollyoaks' as the teacher who has an affair with one of her pupils."
And Holly confirmed she would jump at the opportunity to star in 'Hollyoaks'.
She told The Sun newspaper: "That would be a dramatic role - it would be great, I should do it."
However, Holly also revealed she would like to try her hand at documentary-making, although she conceded it won't happen in the near future because such programmes are so time-consuming.
The mother-of-three shared: "Documentary-wise I would like to something like that one day but I think it's something you need to invest a lot of time in.
"At the moment time is not something I have tons of so eventually I think that would be a nice place to go.
"Hopefully 'This Morning' doesn't end any time soon but eventually once all that time is finished I can focus on things like that and do passion projects and focus on things you really like and travel a bit when the kids are older."
This comes shortly after Holly admitted one of the reasons she presents 'Play to the Whistle' is to impress her seven-year-old son Harry.
Holly - who also shares Belle, five, and Chester, two, with her husband Dan Baldwin - said her son's passion for soccer convinced her to accept the job on the sports quiz show.
She recently said: "Harry is football mad. He's as bad as his father. If he's not playing, he's watching it. I'm either dropping him at football, picking him up from practice, washing his kit, cleaning his boots... It's a massive part of my life and Chester is showing all the signs of going in that direction too.
"So I've had to embrace it or I can't be part of that conversation. Selfishly, this is my way of scoring brownie points with my son."
