Authorities have raised concerns that a potential plot to kidnap and murder TV presenter Holly Willoughby may have been scheduled for next week.

During the arrest of the suspect, Gavin Plumb, police reportedly discovered items including chloroform, cable ties, a blindfold, and ropes, which they believe may constitute a “kidnap and restraint kit.”

International Connection and a Suspected Hitman

It is alleged that the plot may have involved arranging for a man based in the United States, possibly a hired hitman, to travel to the UK next week.

Gavin Plumb, the suspect, is said to have made contact with a hitman in the US with the intention of carrying out the murder of the ITV presenter.

Court Appearance and Legal Charges

Gavin Plumb, aged 36, appeared in court at Chelmsford Magistrates’ Court on Friday, October 6. He faces charges of soliciting to commit murder and incitement to commit kidnapping.

During the court appearance, Plumb confirmed his name and address. He has been remanded in custody and is scheduled to appear before the city’s crown court on November 3.

Rapid Investigation and Concern for Holly’s Safety

The investigation into this alarming case has progressed swiftly, with authorities prioritizing the safety of Holly Willoughby throughout the process.

Background on the Suspect

Gavin Plumb had previously claimed to be unable to leave his flat, not venturing outside for at least four years from 2014.

Despite once participating in a BBC feature on weight loss in 2018, where he documented his journey after reaching 35 stone, he asserted that he rarely left his residence.

However, recent reports suggest he has been more active outside his flat.
