Tess Daly is launching her own wellness guide with a six-figure book deal, it was announced on Friday.
The presenter, 53, – whose new book is not titled yet and will be released next spring – will reveal the simple steps she says will help you ‘glow inside and out’ and feature expert advice on nutrition and wellness.
She follows in the footsteps of wellness gurus like Gwyneth Paltrow with her Goop business and more recently Holly Willoughby with her new brand Wylde Moon.

It’s not the first time that Tess has ventured into being an author, with her having released two novels and a parenting diary in the past.
She teased what to expect from her next book to her 802,000 followers on Instagram, as part of the announcement about the upcoming project.
The post featured two photos of her outside – wearing a grey t-shirt and pair of denim jeans – with her smiling for the camera in one and sat in a meditative pose in the other.

Alongside them, she wrote: ‘Well this is an exciting day because I’m happy to announce I’m working on a book. Sometimes our lives can get so busy we forget to invest in ourselves.’
She further commented that sometimes people forget to spend time focusing on their own health and well-being, so the presenter ‘wanted to channel that’ into her new book.
Tess said that it will include ‘simple steps’ she has learnt over the years that she said can have ‘such a positive effect on how we feel.’ She then teased ‘more exciting news’ soon.

Tess added: ‘Wellbeing is my passion so I’m thrilled to work alongside Transworld and share my own simple steps, which can have a hugely positive and game-changing effect on how we feel.’
It comes after last year Holly Willoughby launched her wellness and lifestyle brand Wylde Moon.
The website is an online space to empower women, explore crystal energies and offer fashion and beauty tips.
And according to popular culture and brand expert Nick Ede, Holly’s surprise career move draws similarities to that of Gwyneth, who has become quite the wellness guru in recent years thanks to her website, Goop.

Speaking exclusively to FEMAIL, he commented: ‘Like Gywneth with Goop and Kourtney with Poosh and back in the day Meghan with The Tig she knows she has a captive audience who love everything about her – with her team of experts she’s showing her fans the everyday products that are available to buy and how good they can make you look and feel,’ Nick continued.
‘It’s great to see she’s not gone for overpriced items and she’s mixing and matching just as you would imagine she did in her daily life as a working mother.’
‘She is set to open a boutique on the site and this is where she will earn good money from affiliates, sponsorship and I am sure in time she will create a subscription model too. This is an ultra smart move from a woman who is taking control of her brand identity and its working very well.
‘I think she could make at least half a million in the first year and then millions moving forward once proof of concept is done.’
Explaining her hopes for her new website upon it’s launch, Holly penned: ‘I want WYLDE MOON to be a place where I can share the things that I love, the lessons that I’ve learnt, the things I see and instantly want to share with others.’
‘I want it to be a place where we can celebrate other people, too, where we can shine a light on them, their brands, their experiences. It’s a celebration of all kinds of beauty.’
On her new site, Holly, who admits she practices sound baths and meditation, explains how she rediscovered herself while filming I’m A Celebrity in Australia without her family when she replaced Ant McPartlin in 2018.
She penned: ‘Australia is the land of alternative therapies, and the town that I was in truly had all kinds of things for all kinds of people.
‘Through this wonderful kinesiologist called Josie, I really started to unlock pieces of myself and when I came back to England, I knew that I didn’t want to stop everything I’d learnt.
‘Now I have things in my own hypothetical toolkit, like meditation and sound baths, that really work for me.’
The presenter went on to explain that she hopes Wylde Moon will help other women discover their ‘true sense’ of self – just like she did.
