TELLY favourite Holly Willoughby made an eventful appearance on The Masked Dancer final.
The This Morning presenter didn’t manage to identify her own relative Tamzin Outhwaite, who was disguised by her Scarecrow mask.
Are Holly Willoughby and Tamzin Outhwaite related?
Yes, the two ladies are related through marriage.
Tamzin is a blood relative of Holly’s TV producer husband Dan Baldwin.
Holly, 40, explained that she and Tamzin, 50, are cousins-in-law.
The presenter said: “My husband’s mum and Tam’s mum are sisters,”
What happened on the Masked Dancer?
This Morning presenter Holly was brought in as an extra detective on The Masked Dancer to help judges Jonathan Ross, Oti Mabuse, Davina McCall and Mo Gilligan work out the identity of Scarecrow, Car Wash, Squirrel and Zip on the ITV game.
But despite being related to Scarecrow (played by Tamzin), Holly still didn’t make the connection.
When Tamzin was unmasked, Holly exclaimed: “I actually can’t believe it! We’re practically related!”
Funnier still, Tamzin and Holly’s kids, had no idea that their mums were appearing in the popular series.
Tamzin revealed: “It was my cousin’s birthday so the kids were all together, and then I watched it with my family in the evening and it was the side of the family that Holly and her husband Dan (Baldwin) are on, so the Italian side. So I didn’t know how much anyone knew.
“People had started trying to guess … My family, half of them thought I was the frog, and half of them didn’t know at all!
“And they all thought we were watching (the show) to see Holly on the panel, so yeah it was quite a moment.”
