Holly Willoughby shows off her green fingers as she gives fans a glimpse of her vegetable patch

Holly Willoughby showed off the results of her green fingers, sharing a selfie with a radish she had grown in the garden of her £3million London pad. 

The This Morning presenter, 40, took to social media on Tuesday afternoon to share the success of her back garden vegetable patch after a hilarious mishap on the show earlier in the day. 

During Tuesday’s episode of the breakfast programme, Holly and co-presenter Phillip Schofield, 59, were left in fits of laughter after Holly revealed she thought corn on the cob grew in the ground.

Captioning her garden selfie, Holly wrote: ‘That’s the face of someone who utterly embarrassed themselves on national TV over their lack of horticultural knowledge and yet has somehow managed to grow a radish… that is a radish right?’

The mother-of-three showcased her natural beauty in the shot, opting for a pared-down makeup look. 

Getting stuck in to some gardening she pulled her signature blonde tresses back into a ponytail. 

Holly, wearing a white T-shirt with a red heart on the front, smiled widely as she waved her radish in her hand.

Just to prove the radishes were from her own garden, Holly shared a second picture of a collection flourishing radishes popping out of the soil.  

The pictures gave Holly’s seven million followers a rare glimpse into the back garden of her family home which she shares with husband Dan Balwin and their three children – Harry, 11, Belle, ten, and Chester, six. 

Holly was left red-faced on This Morning when she confidently explained how she was struggling to grow corn on the cob because, when she dug up the plants, there was no vegetable to be seen. 

Phillip was quick to pick her up on her blunder, explaining the vegetables grow above ground. 

Holly joked: ‘Does it? Well I’m looking in the wrong place then. I thought it was like a carrot?’

It comes after it was reported on Friday that Holly is in crisis talks with ITV over her future on This Morning.

The presenter is currently embroiled in a legal row with her old agency YMU, which means they could take a cut of her future earnings, despite the star severing ties last year. 

It’s been claimed that Holly has told ITV Daytime that she would rather step down from This Morning than allow her former management – who she was with for 13 years – to take £200,000 from her new contract.

An insider told The Sun that the disagreement in not about money, but is purely about ‘the principle’ of what is happening.

The source claimed that the issue surrounds Holly’s future earnings now that her former management are no longer involved in negotiations, adding that YMU are ‘trying to handcuff her for years to come. It’s just not right.’

The insider pointed out that Holly left YMU and set up her own firm, Roxy Management, in order to ‘take back control’ of her future.  

Of Holly’s current predicament, the source told the publication: ‘She loves This Morning, and really doesn’t want to leave. She is committed to the show, but has been given no choice but to discuss her options moving forwards.

‘She wants to stand up for women, and won’t roll over when it comes to unfair renegotiations.

‘She has spoken to ITV execs and explained the situation – in essence, she said she’d rather leave the show than let YMU take such a high percentage of her earnings, when they aren’t entitled to it.’

The insider pointed out that Holly ‘obviously’ adores Phillip Schofield and that ITV are ‘pulling out all the stops’ to try and resolve the crisis as amicably as possible and to stop her from leaving This Morning.    

MailOnline has contacted ITV and Holly’s representatives for comment.
