The 42-year-old was missed off the nominations list in the best presenter category for the second year running, but that hasn’t stopped her pleading for votes for others.
However, the ITV mainstay is hoping to switch things up as she showed her support for Hammond in her latest newsletter for her Wylde Moon brand.
Willoughby first shared some life updates: “Just like that the first full week of September has begun, and while it’s been years since I went back to school, I’m reliving it through my children.
“Harry begins the first year of his GCSEs this year and I sense that he feels like school has just got serious.
“When we were discussing his options, a big deciding factor was to select subjects he naturally has a keen interest in and enjoys,” she continued.
“Even as adults, life is easier when you focus on the joy that’s there for the taking.
“Having been lucky enough to have this summer break to focus on the children, it’s now lovely to be back on the sofa and there was certainly joy in abundance with Alison Hammond today!”
Willoughby continued: “This wonderful lady has been nominated in the best presenter category at tomorrow night’s NTAs and there is still time to vote for her.
“So, if you’ve ever been filled with joy by The Hammond... and let’s be honest, who hasn’t?!... then you know what to do!”
The NTAs airs on Tuesday, September 5 on ITV and ITVX at 8pm
