Holly has been very open over the past year about how her producer hubby is easing any potential tension that could arise from being at home together all the time. Speaking to co-host Phillip Schofield and Vanessa Feltz during a phone-in segment on fighting with your family during lockdown, Holly revealed that Dan has been winning brownie points for doing "nice things" without her having to ask him.

She said: "I also think that doing little nice things gives you a bit of leeway in other areas as well. Like, if I'm doing something and Dan will come and make me a cup of tea, or I'll come back and he'll have put the washing away and I haven't asked him. Then I sort of turn a blind eye to all these other things, so I think doing little things to help makes a big difference."

We know another way Holly is coping with being cooped up in her home for the majority of time – drinking! The TV star cheekily revealed that she has enjoyed the odd tipple during her time in lockdown. Speaking to her Celebrity Juice co-star Keith Lemon on his YouTube series, Keith Lemon's Doing's, the mum-of-three explained that she polished off a bottle of wine to herself last weekend. When asked if she had been drinking by Keith, Holly quipped: "I haven't stopped, I literally clock watch like - is it time for an Aperol Spritz yet?"

She continued: "The trouble is you've got your own bottle of wine and you're sitting there doing this [mimes pouring wine]. It's not like you've got to go to the bar. I woke up on Sunday morning, it was like my worst hangover of 2020. I didn't remember getting in from my own front room." 

The Dancing On Ice star added that her drinking session was just "a bit of fun" now and then, revealing to Keith she doesn't normally drink too much. Holding up a mug which read 'Christmas with you', Holly showed viewers that she was back on the tea after her previous antics.
