Towie star Pete Wicks revealed that Holly Willoughby has made her feelings towards him known, and it isn’t positive.

The TV personality, 35, claims the This Morning host, 42,’genuinely hates’ him after claiming Holly mocked his sex life.

In the latest episode of their Staying Relevant podcast, Pete and co-host Sam Thompson discussed interviewing the presenter at this year’s National Television Awards.

Sam enthused: ‘She’s like the queen of the NTAs,’ before Pete quipped: ‘former queen.’

Pete added: ‘Okay, so I’ve met Holly quite a few times. And I think she’s really lovely. However, she’s so good at this that she’s not that interesting to interview.

‘And also I have a sneaking suspicion that she genuinely hates me.’

He added: ‘And she did throw some shade, she does it every time. So, I wasn’t that fussed.

‘I think it was from Celebrity Juice a few years ago and I think she thinks I’m some kind of f***boy a***hole and she would be absolutely correct in that but she makes it known.’

Speaking about the savage remark Holly allegedly made, Sam said: ‘Pete asked a really professional question. And Pete then went, “Yeah we know Alison [Hammond] we shared a bed with her.”

Pete interjected: ‘And she went, “That doesn’t surprise me with your track record.”‘

At this year’s NTAs, Holly spoke on the red carpet about how her year had unfolded, stating in an apparent swipe at former co-host Phillip Schofield: ‘It has been a difficult year for everybody but what’s lovely is you find that people rally around you and the goodwill is there.

‘People want things to move on. It feels different,’ she told The Sun.

Earlier this year, Phillip, 61, quit This Morning and then stepped away from ITV altogether after he admitted to lying about an affair that he had with a younger male colleague to his coworkers and loved ones.
