EXCLUSIVE: Holly talks being mum to children Harry, Belle and Chester
Holly, who shares Harry as well as five-year-old Belle and Chester with husband Daniel Baldwin, recently opened up about her role as a mother. Speaking to HELLO! and other reporters at an event, the TV star explained: "I have become quite good at becoming strict with my time and in everything I do in life. I think people think that I work a lot more than I actually do, I work Monday to Thursday and I always have Fridays off."

Elaborating further, Holly admitted that her number one priority will always be her family - no matter what. "If I work in the afternoons than I make sure I'm home in time for bedtime," she added. "I have to do that, otherwise I go a bit grey inside. I love work but the most important thing is my family and making that right. If that doesn't feel right, I really put the brake on and pull back. Even friendships will sort of go down the pecking order because it's not as important as that really, if I'm honest. If they're true friends, they'll always understand that. I have a group of mums who are friends and we all are on the same page."
