Holly Willoughby kidnap and murder plot suspect-accused denied bail

The man accused of a plot to kidnap and murder This Morning star Holly Willoughby has been denied bail following the ruling of a judge at the court session on Friday, November 17.

Gavin Plumb, 36, from Essex was not present at the hearing at Chelmsford Crown Court where he was refused a bail application and given a further trial date fixed for June 24 next year, according to reports in the Mirror.

He appeared in a pre-trial and plea hearing at Chelmsford Crown Court earlier this month where he is accused of having contact with a “third party” in America to snatch and kill the telly favourite host, 42.

According to the charges, he allegedly “solicited, encouraged, persuaded, endeavoured to persuade” a third party to murder Mrs Willoughby.

Plumb, of Harlow, Essex, pleaded not guilty to the charges of soliciting to commit murder and incitement to kidnap as he appeared at Chelmsford Crown Court on November 3.

At the time, Judge Mary Loram KC told Plumb he would face a trial next year and remanded him in custody. She said: “Mr Plumb I’m adjourning your case for trial and that trial will take place on June 24 next year.”

Today on Friday, a bail application at Chelmsford Crown Court for Mr Plumb, was settled.
