Holly Willoughby is set to begin renovations on her £2.8million West London home, as planners have given her the go-ahead to extend. But the move may not go down well with the presenter’s neighbours, who have been less than pleased with the 41-year-old’s various planning applications over the years.

Hopefully the presenter can get on her neighbours’ sweeter side, as the Daily Mail’s Richard Eden has revealed that planners have given the go-ahead for a first-floor extension on the six-bedroom home, which lies on a leafy conservation area.

Since buying the home in 2011 with husband Daniel Baldwin, Holly has had a series of setbacks renovating it – as she became entangled in a series of ‘ugly’ rows with neighbours. 

She shares the lavish home with husband Daniel and her three children: Harry, 12, Belle, 11 and seven-year-old Chester. But the news comes after previous spats with the locals, who have complained about noise disruption, local wildlife and loss of privacy.

Neighbour Liliana Velez previously spoke out on the matter, telling The Sun: ‘Having the noise all week all day for so many months is not the standard of living in such an expensive area to live. ‘I do not pay taxes to get this level of disruption, it is not quality of life,’ she explained.

While another local, Julie Halstead, added: ‘Further development as per proposal, would severely impact the character and nature of this part of the road and community.’ 

And it seems the presenter has never quite seen eye to eye with her neighbours, after an anonymous letter was sent in 2013 – accusing her of ‘keeping the whole neighbourhood up last night with drunken behaviour’.

But her husband Daniel was reportedly furious over the accusation, claiming it untrue and seeking an explanation from the unknown sender. The TV producer sent out a letter in the hopes of getting help from his neighbours to unmask the culprit, but seemed to rile them up even more. Here’s hoping the couple have built some bridges in the area, as their renovations get underway. 

Neighbour David Moss told MailOnline in 2013: ‘We have been shocked by this vicious intrusive email, in which they make themselves out to be good neighbours, when we have had enormous trucks blocking the pavement six days a week.’
