Holly Willoughby ??A good business head?With an estimated net worth of ?10m,?Holly Willoughby?has previously demonstrated shrewd business acumen, finding success in a personal homewares range in the now closed BHS. She has also ran a successful production company with her husband, TV commissioner Dan Baldwin, in Peaches Productions. Eventually dissolving in December 2016, the company turned over ?1.7m in 2013. Proving her design credentials,?Holly Willoughby?currently produces a line of clothing for online retailer Very, and her choice of outfits on This Morning regularly provokes media scrutiny. Following the announcement of the business venture, it?s possible that Jones had secretly been taking notes from ex-Dragons? Den investor Kelly Hoppen, one of the biggest names in UK interior design. Holly Willoughby can draw inspiration from other on-screen stars that displayed a successful entrepreneurial streak. In 2014, former Big Brother presenter Davina McCall backed the tech startup Hopster with other investors in the Angel CoFund group. Actor Sadie Frost embraced the crowdfunding model in 2014 to fund her Blonde to Black Pictures production company. Frost used Angels Den in the hope of reaching ?150,000 in investment for the business, capitalising on the government?s Enterprise Investment Scheme (EIS) tax relief to get more people investing in enterprise.
