Holly Willoughby is reportedly set to earn £1million after secretly settling a legal battle with her former agents who were asking for 15 per cent of her future earnings.

The presenter, 41, left the YMU group back in 2020 to set up her own management company, however a row escalated over a 'sunset clause' in which the agency could command a cut of a departing client's future salaries on contracts arranged before their exit.
