National treasure, Holly Willoughby, has been crowned the UK’s favourite female TV star, from hosting daytime magazine series This Morning to goofing around over on ITV2 with Keith Lemon on Celebrity Juice Holly has become a telly favourite with both male and female viewers of all ages.
The same can be said for former Wheel of Fortune host Bradley Walsh, who took the favourite male TV star gong. Bradley has recently been seen on factual series Breaking Dad with his with son Barney, taken in a role over in Coronation Street and hosted series such as Tonight at the London Palladium and of course hit game show The Chase.

The Chase is a big hit for ITV Daytime.
