Production company of Holly Willoughby’s husband Dan Baldwin sees assets plunge by £1.6million after cutting staff from 38 to 20

Holly Willoughby’s husband Dan Baldwin’s TV production company has seen its assets plummet by £1.6million, according to its latest accounts.

Figures from Hungry Bear Media Ltd, acquired by Richard Eden of the Daily Mail, show its net assets fell by £1.6million last year, from £1.83million in 2020 to £256,000 pound sterling.

The firm, which Dan founded in 2014, has created programs including Michael McIntyre’s Big Show, as well as Feel The Fear With Wim Hof, on which Willoughby was a presenter.

Hungry Bear Media Ltd has also reduced the number of its employees from 38 to just 20.

A spokesman declined to comment when contacted by the Daily Mail.

Elsewhere, Holly appears to be walking away from her recent ‘queue’ controversy, which saw her and This Morning co-host Phillip accused of jumping the queue to see the queen reclining in state.

The weeks-long fallout from the incident – which spawned hundreds of jokes online at their expense – sparked rival briefing wars, with the presenters’ relationship now strained.

Holly was also thought to be unhappy that ITV hadn’t stepped in sooner to support her, and there has been speculation – since denied – that she may be leaving the show.

After being seen on the official camera feed inside the venue, the pair said they were there to do a segment for the This Morning show which will air four days later.

No TV crew other than the official stream was allowed inside.

Holly and Phil haven’t commented on the matter since releasing a statement in which they insisted they “didn’t skip the queue.”

Despite the fact that Holly and Phil’s sacking calls could land Alison and Dermot the role of full-time hosts, sources say they have remained loyal.

Phil and Holly were reportedly paid up to £600,000 for presenting the Monday-Thursday daytime show, with Alison and Dermot replacing the Friday show.

Insiders This Morning believe they’ve now ‘been through the worst of the crisis’, but ITV bosses are still taking steps to ensure Phil and Holly get all the support they need.
