Holly's followers loved the personal festive picture, with many of her fans surprised to hear of her connection with Tamzin, who is due to return to her Eastenders role in the new year. The pair are related by Holly's husband Dan Baldwin, who is cousin to Tamzin.

One fan said: "I didn’t know you and @glamzin were related... you learn something new every day 😊 Merry Christmas to you both xx." Another wrote: "Well look at you 3 beauties good looks run in the family then. Merry Christmas & New Year 2018 lots of love luck & good health to you all." One fan told Holly: "Excellent genes of course 😄 enjoy the rest of your Christmas gorgeous ladies xx."

A few days earlier, Holly shared some photos from her pre-Christmas skiing holiday, telling fans she felt reluctant to come home. The presenter hit the slopes for a week-long break, returning to the UK just in time for Christmas. Sharing a selfie, Holly wrote: "Home now... always hard to say good bye to this magical place... felt literally on top of the world." The 36-year-old looked stylish as ever in skiwear, with mirrored ski glasses and a cord jacket that featured a faux fur trimmed hood.
