Holly Willoughby and kids hug koalas and play with kangaroos on fun day out

I’m A Celeb host Holly Willougby gave her family a taste of the outback yesterday when she took them on a trip to a wildlife park where they got to hug koalas and play with kangaroos.

The 37-year-old took her three kids to Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary, a heritage-listed zoological garden on the Gold Coast.

The site has koalas, crocodiles, kangaroos and wallabies and the whole family posed for pictures with Australia’s most iconic animals and enjoyed a McDonald’s lunch at the Queensland tourist attraction.

Before the show started, Holly told how she was bringing her whole family out including her children.

Holly’s husband Dan Baldwin was alongside her to join in the fun with oldest son Harry, nine, seven-year-old daughter Belle and youngest son Chester.

Holly previously said: “From the point I said ‘yes’ my whole focus has been working out the family logistics. The kids are coming out to Australia so we’ve had to organise tutors. My mum and dad are joining us and Dan will fly back and forth.

“I’m looking forward to taking the kids to Australia and just having that real outdoor living experience, going to the beach etc and saying goodbye to this cold weather!”
