Emma Willis says she and husband Matt have ‘no plans’ to work with each other on TV
Emma Willis, 45, revealed that she and husband Matt, 38, have no plans to become TV’s next big duo, after he joined her management company. In a recent interview, she admitted that the former Busted singer “doesn’t really do presenting”, as she continues to front new show Cooking With The Stars with her “new TV husband” Tom Allen.
Speaking to The Mirror, she explained: “[Matt] joined the same management company as me, but they do lots of things.
“He’s doing a film at the minute, and a tour as well, so he’s very much in that world.”
She added: “We did I’m a Celeb before together, but that made sense as he’d just won it and I was presenting it.
“It would have to be something that made sense for us to do, rather than just going, ‘Oh, let’s go find a show to do together’.

“It’s not a plan that’s going on in the background. It’s not a ‘let’s get together and go pounce on the world of TV.'”
Instead, she and Tom have taken ITV viewers by storm with their new star-studded cookery series.
And from the second week into filming, Emma revealed she knew they were a TV match made in heaven.
“I’ve got a new TV husband now, and that’s Tom,” she says, giving him a cheeky smile in a Zoom interview.
“He’s is an absolute gem.
After having previously said that she would do Strictly “in a heartbeat” if she had time, she also admitted what scares her about it, saying the idea of “walking down those stairs” to the dance floor “fills me with horror”.
Speaking on This Morning, she told Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford that she wasn’t sure if she would “physically be able to do it”, as her “legs go to jelly just imagining it”.
“I can’t dance and I think I would have to have a dance lesson to see if I wanted to humiliate myself that much before I ever signed up to it,” Emma laughed.
Regardless of her worries, she said the show has always been an option for her but she’s always been too busy with other work commitments.
“If I had time, I would do it in a heartbeat, like I absolutely love it,” she told The Sun.
“I’ve been asked in the past but it’s always the time of year when we’re filming The Voice and The Circle.
“The Circle is not happening this year, but let’s hope The Voice is — otherwise I will be doing Strictly.”
Last year, the live semi-finals of the ITV singing show took place in January and February, following the earlier blind auditions.
Strictly Come Dancing tends to run from August to December, with last year’s socially distanced series offering some various changes to the format.
It is yet to be announced how the 2021 show will run.
