Holly Willoughby has revealed her surprising connection to an EastEnders star.

Holly said to Tamzin: “I loved you so much in [The Masked Dancer]. I clearly didn’t guess who you were, which is slightly embarrassing bearing in mind we are practically related. Sorry about that!”
Tamzin replied: “That’s all right.”
Holly’s mother-in-law is Tamzin’s mum’s sister.
Tamzin starred in EastEnders from 1998 until 2002, before later returning in 2017.
