Holly Willoughby trolled over This Morning dress as she’s compared to ‘grandma’

Presenting This Morning four days each week, Holly Willoughby is famed for her sophisticated onscreen style, nailing a new look day-in, day-out.

For Tuesday's show, the presenter, 39, worked a vintage-inspired floral gown, sharing an outfit post with her followers over Instagram before heading to the set.

Unfortunately, her frock wasn't a hit with all of her followers, as certain Instagram users took to the comment section to accuse the dress of being too "old-fashioned".

Holly referred to the remarks on This Morning during a fashion segment with Lisa Snowdown, which featured embroidered lacy collars.

Referring to reactions she'd had to her own look, she pointed out: "Some people say 'oh my gosh you look like a grandma'."

However, the dress was an intentional retro look – featuring a lacy Peter-Pan collar and an empire waistline, the 40s inspired tea dress was designed by British label Ghost London.

Holly paired the gown with some black kitten heels, featuring suede detailing and complete with a pointed toe.

Her platinum blonde hair, which she dyes herself at home, had been styled in her signature bob, complete with a sleek side parting.

In her Instagram caption, she wrote: "Morning Tuesday… we have a cat psychic on today who can read paws!!!!

"And yes, I've spent all morning trying to take a picture of Bluebells pads… not as easy as you may think! See you on @thismorning at 10am… Dress by @ghostfashion."

The comment section below was divided, as a number of fans claimed the dress was a little too "old-fashioned" for their tastes, preferring more modern looks.

One said: "You always look stunning, but this dress is hideous and far too old fashioned for you!"

"Holly looking gorgeous as always! Only she could make this awful fashion for shapeless peasant dresses look good," wrote a second.

And a third cruelly penned: "Grandma dress today."

While some of Holly's fans may prefer a more contemporary look, Holly has spoken about her love of vintage fashion in the past, promoting sustainable shopping over the years.

During the summer, the presenter was a vision in white in a cotton tea dress, saying: "Dress is a little vintage find."

This Morning airs on weekdays at 10am on ITV.
