The wonderful thing about being a morning television presenter is that there is plenty of time left in the day to also be a lady who lunches.

Holly Willoughby was pictured arriving for a meal at the upmarket restaurant The Ivy in London today.

The 31-year-old looked lovely in a black and white gingham sundress under a black blazer and strappy heels.

The bubbly star's frock gave a hint of cleavage with a plunging neckline and the short hemline provided a flash of leg.

Holly hooked an animal-print Mulberry bag over her arm as she made her way to the restaurant.

Her hair was blow-dried into a voluminous mane of blonde, and she added a slick of peach lipstick to complete her fresh look.

This week Holly unveiled her latest collection of clothing for Very.co.uk.

In a sexy secretary style shoot, the presenter poses seductively in an array of figure-hugging dresses.

'It's every girls dream to have her own label, hope you enjoy my new collection,' Holly said.
