Holly Willoughby's ski suit has got fans totally obsessed as the star fights off the chill during exciting new TV show Freeze the Fear.
However, her latest look is all about staying chic while also fighting sub-zero temperatures as she hosts her new BBC show, Freeze the Fear. The BBC show is a brand new celebrity reality show that follows eight famous faces as they face freezing temperatures in the Italian Alps.
The new show, which is co-hosted by funnyman Lee Mack and produced by her husband Dan Baldwin, came from an obsession that Holly has with a man you may have heard of—Wim Hof. More specifically the Wim hof breathing technique, which has gained a cult following across the globe

If you’re not familiar with the Dutch motivational speaker, also known as 'The Iceman,' you may be about to become obsessed. The beanie-wearing mental health advocate has developed his unique set of movements and breathwork that he claims can help you sleep better, increase creativity and energy, and decrease stress levels.
Sounds great, right? Well, the catch is there's also a lot of ice-cold showers, plunging yourself into snow, freezing water, and other bits that will give you the chills just thinking about.
The celebrities will face, "a series of daunting cold challenges designed to push their minds and bodies to the limit." Patrice Evra, Gabby Logan, Alfie Boe, Tamzin Outhwaite, Owain Wyn Evans, Dianne Buswell, Professor Green, and Chelcee Grimes are the brave bunch ready to face the challenge.
Despite not being a part of the challenge herself, Holly told the BBC that she suffered throughout the filming of the series.
"Lee and I didn’t actually have to do any of the major challenges," she said, "but it didn’t mean that we didn’t get cold. It was freezing. Some days, it was minus 5 or 6. I had heat packs in every layer of my ski suit possible. I know, poor old me ha!"
Freeze the Fear started on Tuesday, April 12 at 9pm on BBC One and BBC iPlayer. The show will have six hour-long episodes, airing weekly at the same time.
