GMB: First look at Holly Willoughby in Midsomer Murders
Holly Willoughby has made her acting debut on Midsomer Murders much to the disappointment of ITV viewers.
The This Morning star actually filmed her cameo on the series over two years ago but the episode, named The Witches of Angels Rise, finally aired this evening.
Starring alongside Holly were EastEnders’ actor Colin Salmon and Friday Night Dinner’s Tracy-Ann Oberman.
However, as the episode got underway, Midsomer Murders fans flocked to social media to blast Holly’s brief appearance.
Ali Green said: “How much did Holly Willoughby get paid for appearing for two seconds #MidsomerMurders?”

Another user wrote: “Am I seeing things? Holly Willoughby is in Midsummer Murders. I wonder – did she skip the audition queue to get the part? What an absolute shocker, she absolutely loves the limelight #Midsummermurders.” (sic)
Darren Dixon said: “I’m guessing Holly Willoughby has ended up on the cutting room floor. I’ve seen her talking part on YouTube, and it was more than “excuse me” #MidsomerMurders.”
Another fan penned: “Was that Holly Willoughby’s “acting debut”? A walking part? #MidsomerMurders.”

Despite the backlash, other users appear to enjoy Holly’s appearance, with @hollywillslove writing: “DS Winter crushing just like the rest of us. #MidsomerMurders #HollyWilloughby.”
Natalie shared: “Oh dear nice satanic murder episode. Great choice. #satanicelites.”
Holly told her Instagram followers it was a dream come true to be starring on the show, as she’s a big fan herself.
However, she admitted last week she made a Midsomer Murders blunder ahead of the episode airing after not realising she had an extra scene.
She shared: “So, I’ve just shot my first scene, and total transparency, it was a scene I hadn’t actually noticed that was in my script because I was so focused on the three lines that I had later.
“I didn’t realise I had to say ‘excuse me’, so when I walked in and everybody was running their lines. I was like, ‘Where is this, in here?’ Thankfully, it was only shots of the back of my head! So, so far, so good!”
Holly was left speechless in March 2021 when she discovered live on This Morning she’d be appearing on the show.
Midsomer Murders episodes are available to watch on ITVX.
