Holly Willoughby has opened up about her close group of fans and admits she feels very lucky to have so many people in her life that she can rely on for fun, advice and support

Holly Willoughby feels lucky to have a group of friends who she can "talk to about anything" going on in her life.

The 36-year-old presenter is best friends with fellow TV star Fearne Cotton and has a strong collection of pals that includes her 'This Morning' co-host Phillip Schofield, All Saints singer Nicole Appleton, former 'X Factor' presenter Kate Thornton, ex-'EastEnders' actress Tamzin Outhwaite and Spice Girl Emma Bunton.

Holly - who is married to television producer Dan Baldwin, with whom she has three children, son Harry, seven, daughter Belle, five, and two-year-old son Chester - appreciates her friendships greatly as it is important for her to have people in her life she can rely outside of her family.

Speaking as the 2017 ambassador for Diet Coke at the launch of their 'Get The Gang Back Together' campaign in London, Holly said: "Friends are so important and they are always there for you no matter what. I have friends that I have met at different stages in my life and we have grown up together, but what they all have in common is we can talk to each other about anything and you never feel judged because they perfectly understand you."

Diet Coke's new campaign sees the soft drink company offering fans the chance to win luxurious penthouse stays for groups of friends visiting London, Paris, Rome, Barcelona and Dublin.

Holly launched the project at The Athenaeum Hotel in London and looked stunning in a sparkling sequin skirt, crisp white shirt and red heels.

Discussing the aim of the campaign, event host Aedamar Howlett - Marketing Director for Coca-Cola Great Britain - said: "Since its inception, Diet Coke has been synonymous with female togetherness, from the iconic hunks of the 90s through to last summer's tie up with 'Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie'. This year, we want to encourage friends to get together for more good times."
