The This Morning presenter has admitted she wants to join a soap: "I'd love to do soaps.

"I did speak to This Morning’s soap expert the other day because she writes for Emmerdale and I said ‘what would you cast me in’ and she said she would cast me in Hollyoaks as the teacher who has an affair with one of her pupils."

If Holly joined Hollyoaks she could definitely become the UK's richest female television presenter. It was recently revealed that the mum-of-two could rack in an incredible £21million later this year.

Holly and Dragons Den's Peter Jones are set to launch an interior design business and Brad expert Phil Pallen revealed the Celebrity Juice presenter could make a tonne of money this year: "We can definitely expect her to earn 10 million, if not more.

"Holly's wholesome, relatable public image, as well as her background – education, family and fame – makes this is a natural fit."
