Holly Willoughby is considering legal action after learning that her image is being used to promote diet pills. An advert for a Raspberry Ketone weight supplement tablets shows the This Morning star in a bikini, along with a write-up that reads: "Without a doubt, Holly Willoughby looks as fantastic as ever, and Raspberry Ketone was the key." But sources close to the star insist she has no connection to the company. A spokesperson for 36-year-old Holly told HELLO! Online: "We're aware of a number of scam websites using images of Holly, along with other celebrities, to see weight loss products and are liaising with our lawyers about possible legal action."

Holly Willoughby has impressed fans with her slender and toned figure in recent months

Much has been made of Holly's weight in recent months, with the TV star impressing viewers with her slender frame. The 36-year-old has previously refused to discuss her diet and exercise regime in favour of promoting a healthy body image for her fans – but she was recently quizzed on the issue during an appearance on Lorraine. "I think you sort of get – the children are a little bit older, so I've got a little bit more time for myself," she told her host. "And I'm always one of those people that if you feel happy and healthy that's all that matters."
