Holly Willoughby wants to "pause" her career.

The 36-year-old presenter has just reprised her hosting role on "Dancing on Ice", is a team leader on "Celebrity Juice" and fronts "This Morning" from Monday through to Friday every week but, although she loves her television jobs, she has admitted she won't be taking on anymore work as she wants to focus on her children Harry, eight, Belle, six, and Chester, three, because they'll need her even more the older they get.

Speaking to The Sun newspaper, she said: "I don't really want to do more, I just want to pause everything and keep everything as is. Work is in a really lovely place and I'm really happy with "This Morning".

"My biggest challenge over the next few years will be parenting my children as they get older. When they're babies you're constantly thinking about making sure they're feeding right, that they get to those milestones, that they get to school.

"And then suddenly, as they get older, it's their characters that are starting to build and I realise more than ever the weight of responsibility of making sure they turn out to be really good, kind human beings. My main focus over the next few years is churning out three very grounded, normal, happy, content children, teenagers and adults, eventually. That's my greatest job I'll ever do."

But, luckily for Holly, she's able to share her parental duties with her husband Daniel Baldwin - who she married in 2007 - so that both of them can continue to work.

She explained: "Marriage is something you have to look after and work at. It's really important to do that and I'm very lucky that I count Dan as one of my best friends -- he's also a friend that I think is quite hot.

"If you get on and have the same interests, it makes the difficult times easier because you're both approaching it from the same angle.

"So I'm very lucky, that's all I can say. I never take him for granted, I really don't, because I imagine it's not easy at times but we do have a real understanding of one another. And he makes me laugh and that's really important."
