Lara celebrated the recent Easter holidays with her family – and that included her lookalike mum. In pictures, the presenter was seen embracing her mother in a vast kitchen, and both the ladies were smiling from ear to ear.

"Even better than an Easter basket full of my favorites," the popular presenter sweetly wrote.

Fans also adored the image, with many calling the pair "twins" and others expressed their joy at seeing the mother and daughter together.

Lara is also a mother to two teenaged children, son Duff and daughter Katherine, who she had with her ex-husband David Haffenreffer. The former couple still have a great friendship, with David walking Lara down the aisle when she married husband Richard McVey.
