Security guard Gavin Plumb found GUILTY of plotting to kidnap, rape and murder TV Holly Willoughby


An ‘obsessed’ security guard wept in the dock today as he was convicted of a ‘graphic’ plot to kidnap, rape and murder Holly Willoughby in the hope of fulfilling his ‘ultimate fantasy’. 

Morbidly obese Gavin Plumb, 37, claimed he wasn’t physically capable of abducting the former This Morning presenter, had no one qualified to drive to her London home, and that vile conversations he had with ‘like-minded’ people in dark recesses of the internet were ‘just online chat’.


But a jury took 12 hours and 19 minutes to find him guilty after being presented with a raft of shocking evidence, including a chloroform restraint kit that he planned to use it to kidnap Ms Willoughby.

He then planned to take the TV presenter to an isolated stud farm for se-ual torture, kill her and dump her body in a lake. 


Plumb slowly shook his head and stared at the floor of the dock as he was unanimously convicted of soliciting murder and inciting rape and kidnap.

He then began to weep as he was sent down to the cells, sniffling as he tried to hold back tears.

The defendant, who weighed up to 30 stone and adopted the user name Big Bear to chat to others about his plot online, appeared to formulate his fantasy as early as 2011 – googling the phrase ‘how to meet people who plan to kidnap celebs’.

But his plans were foiled when one of his potential accomplices, who went by the name of David Nelson, turned out to be an undercover officer from the Owatonna Police Department in the US state of Minnesota.

Jurors heard that Plumb had form when it came to ‘terrifying real women’, including convictions for attempted kidnap and false imprisonment following three incidents involving four women in 2006 and 2008.

Plumb was heard discussing the horrifying plot to abduct, rape and then kill the 43-year-old presenter during a series of horrifying voice notes played to the court. 

The shocking recordings were sent to a potential accomplice called Marc, with Plumb saying he was looking for a place to ‘hold’ Holly after ambushing her at her family home.
