In what is possibly the most unexpected news to come out of Christmas this year, Holly Willoughby has revealed that Tamzin Outhwaite is her cousin. Seriously, WTF?!
This Morning host Holly wrote alongside the snap: ‘Me and @glamzin and our Nonna Matriarch! In true #eastenders style… faaaaamly! Xxx FYI.., @glamzin is my cousin’.
But aside from commenting on nanny Lina’s youthful good looks, fans ended up getting into a scrap in the comments about whether the pair are actually cousins.
Long story short, Tamzin is Holly’s 42-year-old husband Dan Baldwin’s older cousin. Does that make them cousins? Well fans couldn’t seem to decide in the comments.
One wrote: ‘Tamzin is Dan’s (Holly’s husbands) cousin not Holly’s. Confused AF but whatever’ and another wrote ‘Its her husbands cousin FYI x’.
But others came out to defend Holly – who has children Harry, Chester and Belle with husband Dan – to say that the pair are still related whether they’re blood relatives or not.
One wrote in defence of Holly: ‘I know not having ago I’m just saying even though she’s dan s cousin she’s still related even if not by blood (sic)’.
Another added: ‘When you marry someone they become your family!!!!She is obviously proud of the fact!!!’.
While one said what we were all thinking. Does it really matter what she calls her? Every family is different.
The fan wrote: ‘does it matter? I call my cousins children my niece and nephew, just easier than second cousin however many times removed! I’m sure it’s the same for her’.
So whether they’re cousins, second cousins, cousins by marriage or whatever they are, they’re family and that’s all that matters!
