The Chase host Bradders has made several appearances on Holly’s This Morning over the past several years.

Whether it was promoting his music, breaking dad, or discussing pandemics via Zoom, Bradley has always been a valued guest.

Holly versus Bradley!

But apart from Holly’s big day appearance, the two have also appeared as regular guests on other projects.

For example, Bradley was team captain on the ITV panel series Play to the Whistle. Holly hosted the sports game show – and bumped into Bradley on more than one occasion!

Her light-hearted humor has led her to discipline him once by taking him to “the naughty level”. And another funny spit between them saw her toss her cue cards at that head from several paces away … and it landed perfectly!

Bradley and Holly as buddies

Undoubtedly, their slight affinity made Bradley and Holly a very attractive casting option for BBC producers.

But even away from the cameras, they have a lot of friendly affection for one another.

Bradley is not a natural social media user, despite using Instagram. And on many occasions, especially the first time the account was set up, he has lightly upset his buddy. In one post, he even jokingly mocked Holly’s Insta outfit pictures.

Bradley and Holly – whom he often called “H” that morning – also vacationed together with their families and other celebrity friends.

Perhaps the most memorable case of this was in 2017 when she took off with Phillip Schofield and Dragons Den star Peter Jones.

‘Boozy’ fun abroad

According to news reports at the time, the group enjoyed at least one big night together this summer.

Phil recorded scenes on his Snapchat account that showed their group shots after a meal.

Someone joked that it was a “whole bottle,” to which Bradley joked, “This is just for me. That’s great, that’s sensational. “

However, when Holly handed her colleague a tray of drinks across the table, some glasses tipped over.

Phillip exclaimed, “Holly, damn Willoughby, spilled this … goddamn it!”

Could your 2017 travel destination – probably Portugal – be featured on Take Off?
