Holly Willoughby has an incredible figure. If you follow her on Instagram, you'll see her daily posts about the outfits she wears while presenting on This Morning, which accentuate her small waist and her curves.

But another recent post on the presenter and mum-of-three's Instagram gives us an insight into how she maintains this shape, and I'm not going to lie, it's got me very excited. Because her diet contains CHEESE.

Cheese - the deliciously more-ish but notoriously high in fat food I reckon I eat in 90% of my meals - is part of Holly Willoughby's diet. We don't know for sure how often she eats it, but according to scientific research - if she does eat it regularly - it could actually contribute to her enviable figure.

A Danish study published in the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry recently revealed that people who eat cheese every day have higher levels of the fatty acid, butyrate. That might sound like a bad thing, but butyrate is known to boost a person's metabolism, meaning it'll actually help burn off your food quicker.

Er, how is this a thing and why did we never know it before?
