The presenter’s I’m A Celebrity footwear has been very popular indeed.

Holly Willoughby’s outfits always get a lot of attention and since she headed to Australia to present I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here! with Dec Donnelly there’s been no let up, with fans clamouring to find out where to buy every item she wears.

While she’s been down under, the 37-year-old has changed her style significantly and there’s been one element that viewers have really responded to – Holly’s footwear.
Swapping her trademark heels for flat, chunky boots has resulted in almost every pair of boots she’s worn has sold out back in the UK.

It started with some brown Grenson boots, followed by a black pair from Topshop and then the £295 Heidi boots from designer Camilla Elphick, leaving retailers scrabbling to get them back in stock.

Willoughby is actually tapping into a trend that started with Gucci’s edgy hiking/biker boot hybrids and now the ‘hiker’ boot is all over the high street.

Combining sporty laces and hiking-style eyelets with a biker boot tread and silhouette, the hiker boot is a luxe take on outdoor gear.

Let’s be clear: Hiker boots aren’t really intended for walking expeditions (some have got a sizeable heel after all), but they’ll keep your feet warm and they’re sturdy enough for stomping around in even the worst winter weather.

Also, as the fashionable Mrs Willoughby has suddenly made everyone realise, they can be paired with everything from mini dresses to leather skirts and denim cut-offs.

Plus, you don’t have to spend a fortune to try the trend, because there are lots of fab hiker boots on the high street from as little as £35.
