Holly Willoughby is ready to ‘fight the old talent agency for the revenue claim’


Holly Willoughby is said to be ready to take over her old management agency if she tries to claim future income.The 39-year-old This Morning presenter was with YMU, which also looks after her TV co-star Phillip Schofield, as well as Claudia Winkleman and Ant and Dec.

Holly recently left them when she announced that she had created her own management agency, Roxy, with an all-female team.

The Sun reported that YMU is looking to pocket 15% of all future earnings from Holly, but it has been claimed Holly has not signed a contract to that effect.

The TV favorite is believed to have the backing of several of her famous friends who say she shouldn’t have to give up any of her earnings from jobs she secured, especially since leaving YMU.

Holly Willoughby formed her own management agency

A source told The Sun that Holly “never signed a binding contract with [YMU], “And that it was a shame if they pursued this because she” was incredibly loyal to YMU for many years. ”

The source also claimed that the agency is not “registered with the professional body called PMA which represents actors and agencies”, so there should be no reason why “they ask for a commission on the income future ”.

The source added that Holly “won’t be taken for a fool” and is a “strong, astute and very successful woman who works in a tough industry.”

Holly had worked for the agency for 13 years before going out with her own business last month.

Speaking about the new business, the source said, “Holly created Roxy with an all-female team. She’s all about empowerment… she won’t come back to it. ”
