    Holly Willoughby looked happier than ever as she soaked up the sun in a plunging swimsuit during her lavish family holiday.

    The mum-of-three, 42, appeared to put the recent drama surrounding This Morning as she took a dip in the sea on the coast of Algrave in Portugal.

    She rocked a classic black swimsuit which featured a plunging neckline and a racy high leg underwear line.

    The ITV presenter added a pair of designer sunglasses to her stylish ensemble and pulled her golden locks up into a low bun at the nape of her neck before she braved the cool temperatures of the ocean.

    The broadcaster took a stroll along the golden sands of the unspoilt Mediterranean beach as she flashed a grin to paparazzi.

    The Wylde Moon guru – who is reportedly set to sign a new contract with the daytime show, increasing her £700k salary – has yet to speak publicly about taking leave from the show after a rather difficult few months on the airwaves.

    Holly usually takes a break from her presenting role during the school holidays, with one source telling The Sun that she would be taking two months off as part of her “usual and planned break over the summer.”

    When her former host Phillip Schofield was on the show, the pair would sign off with a little goodbye message.

    But this summer, the wellness advocate appears to have taken her leave without a fuss in an effort not to rustle and feather after the drama surrounding the show this spring.

    Fans will know that although the doting mum likes to keep her private life out of the spotlight, she usually takes her annual summer holiday with her husband Dan Baldwin and their three children.

    She also previously met up with Phillip during their festive break. Last year, the pair took to Instagram to share a snap of themselves laughing in the sea with the hashtag #willofield.

    The duo also shared photos parodying the loved-up snaps of Tom Hiddleston and Taylor Swift splashing around on their Rhode Island holiday, sporting matching ‘I [heart] H.W’ and ‘I [heart] P.S’ T-shirts.

    It comes after PR expert Mark Borkowski claimed that Holly's bumper pay cheque could anger Brits as the country continues to battle the ongoing cost of living crisis.

    Speaking to OK! Magazine, he said: "What's Holly expected to do? Like footballers, TV personalities often have a very, very short shelf life.."

    He went on to explain that the TV star's current salary also pays a huge team of people who are hard at work behind the scenes.

    The expert continued: "To make this work, she's got to deliver on screen and be very careful in terms of what she does publicly, what interviews she does and what she delivers on her own personal social media. It's about the long-term strategy now."

    But that doesn't mean that it will be plain sailing for the broadcaster when she returns to the show next month, after the PR professional warned that Josie Gibson could soon stand down

    Over the past few weeks, Josie has stepped up to help entertain the nation following the swift exit of Holly's former co-star Philip Schofield.

    Josie has become a regular co-host of Holly's on the ITV programme but Mark reckons Josie's management team might be preparing for her to leave the show and escape from Holly's "shadow".

    If speculation is true, then Josie could be setting her sights on another ITV gig – joining Geordie duo Ant and Dec as a contestant on I'm A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!.

    It is understood that the blonde bombshell will return to the signature blue sofa next month when she will front the show with a revolving cast of hosts following Phillip Schofield’s explosive exit.
