HOLLY Willoughby has reportedly getting ready for a legal fight after discovering a weight loss supplement company is using her old modelling photos to shift their products.
The This Morning presenter has unwillingly become the face of ULTRAPur Wild Raspberry Ketone after the company used a picture of her in a bikini for an ad campaign.
A source close to the star revealed to the Mirror that she has absolutely no connection to the pills whatsoever – and is livid that she’s being used to push their pills.
A spokesman told the site: “We’re aware of a number of scam websites using images of Holly, along with other celebrities, to sell weight loss products and are liaising with our lawyers about possible legal action.”
The mum-of-three’s recent weight loss and style icon status has been considered to be one of the number of reasons why she has been targeted to be the face of the product by online scam artists.
Over the last few months Holly has lost weight with the help of pilates classes, which has divided fans in the process.
As revealed in June, Holly has recruited fitness guru Lynne Robinson to help her get in shape.
Exercises used by Lynne include assisted curl-ups with the help of a pillow and large towel, a movement which focuses on alignment, lengthening the spine and connecting the deep abdominal muscles.
The work-outs may have done wonders for Holly’s look but she likes to emphasize that her appearance is “not the important thing”.
She said in 2016: “I don’t want to encourage eating disorders. I try not to focus too much on my appearance.
“As long as I’m being healthy, that’s good enough for me.
“I’m quite active and I try not to let the way I look be the main focus because it’s not the important thing,” she added.
Earlier this month Holly opened up about her weight loss during an interview with Lorraine.
She said: “I think you sort of get [used to the routine], the children are a little bit older, so I’ve got a little bit more for myself.
“And I’m always one of those people that if you feel happy and healthy that’s all that matters.”
