Holly Willoughby’s media mogul husband allegedly utilised the government’s furlough scheme to prop up one of his multi-million pound businesses, according to reports.
Holly and her husband Daniel Baldwin got married back in 2007 and have three children together.
Dan works in television like Holly, but not in front of the camera. Dan’s a television producer that has worked on shows such as Ministry of Mayhem, Through the Keyhole, Virtually Famous, and Celebrity Juice and is also managing director of Hungry Bear Media.
‘He’s got his own production company, which is hugely successful, and he’s doing brilliantly. We’re very lucky, that’s for sure,’ Holly recently told Fabulous magazine.
Hungry Bear Media is valued at around £2million but despite this, he allegedly claimed up to £10,000 in state cash in December last year.
Companies House accounts show it was one of many businesses to claim during the pandemic and according to figures, he was entitled to the scheme.

Daniel and This Morning star Holly are reported to have a combined worth of £13million.
As well as his other roles, Daniel is also a director of Roxy Media Ltd, which is reported to be worth over £10million.
Holly is said to be paid £600,000 a year for her ITV morning show and, on top of this, she also presents Dancing On Ice, Take Off with Bradley & Holly and has a variety of brand partnerships.
According to Roxy Media Ltd’s most recent records, the mother-of-three made approximately £1.5million in 2019 and 2020.
Hungry Bear Media’s most recent financial filings from January indicate nearly £1million in cash and assets.
‘Some businesses have repaid the support,’ the TaxPayers’ Alliance said:
‘They should serve as an example for firms that have come through the past year in rude health.’
Holly and Dan met while working on the children’s TV show Ministry Of Mayhem in 2004. They were friends for six months before they started dating, and kept their relationship secret for eight months.
The loved up couple were married on 4 August 2007 and the star-studded ceremony was attended by the likes of Dermot O’Leary and Fearne Cotton.
