Holly shared the special offer on Instagram 

The website lists Holly's bid as a lunch hosted by Rod Stewart and Penny Lancaster, with Holly, Chris' breakfast radio show crew and actor Richard E. Grant also in attendance – sounds fabulous! No wonder the bidding has already shot up to £50,000 and counting. The mum-of-three's fans were thrilled with her participation in the auction, commenting: "Amazing idea, well done guys," "I hope you fetch a good sum for charity," and: "With a smile like that you’re priceless."
