According to reports, broadcasters have approached Holly Willoughby following her departure from This Morning.
The 42-year-old departed the ITV breakfast show in October following the revelation of an alleged kidnapping plot against her.
According to reports, the BBC and Global are both interested in hiring Holly for radio broadcasts.
According to reports, the BBC would ‘love’ Holly to take Claudia Winkleman’s place after she stepped down from her monthly Radio 2 position.
‘After she quit This Morning, she has more time on her hands and a weekly radio gig could be the perfect fit,’ they continued.
‘Claudia Winkleman stepped down from her weekly slot on Radio 2 and the BBC would love to see if Holly would consider it.
‘Global is also keen to see if she’d work with them, especially after Amanda Holden proved to be such a hit for them on Heart and Kate Garraway on Smooth Radio.’
According to the source, Holly has had a ‘lot’ of approaches, and it is up to her to determine what is best for her.
However, following Claudia’s departure from her Saturday morning programme from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., comedian, novelist, and actor Romesh Ranganathan will debut a new Saturday morning show in the same time slot in April of this year.
Holly has remained out of the public spotlight since her departure on This Morning, just lately being glimpsed.
It was recently announced that she would be returning to television screens as the host of Dancing On Ice alongside Stephen Mulhern this month.
Judges Torvill and Dean, Ashley Banjo, and Oti Mabuse return to the panel, and Holly and Stephen collaborated on Ministry of Mayhem 20 years ago.
According to reports, the actress was ‘not in a good place’ following the alleged kidnapping attempt, with security worker Gavin Plumb, 36, recently pleaded not guilty to the accusations.
Holly stated in her letter announcing her resignation from This Morning that it was a “difficult goodbye,” but that she was making the decision for herself and her family.
She said in full: ‘I have let ITV know today that after 14 years, I will not be returning to This Morning.

‘To everyone who has ever worked on the show over the years, thank you so so much. This is such a difficult goodbye, you are incredible and I forever will be proud of what we’ve done together. Thank you to everyone at ITV for being supportive. To every guest who has sat on our sofa, thank you.
‘Most of all, thank you to the wonderful viewers. You’ve been so loyal, so supportive and the very best company every day.
‘Richard and Judy said “we only look after this show, it will always belong to the viewers”. It’s been an honour to just be part of its story and I know this story has many chapters left to go. Sadly, however, I now feel I have to make this decision for me and my family.
‘I will miss you all so much. Holly.’
The presenter’s This Morning departure came five months after her longtime co-host Philip Schofield quit the show and resigned from ITV in full after admitting his ‘unwise but not illegal’ affair with a younger colleague on the show.
