Holly tends not to share many photos of her family on Instagram – and when she does, she takes care to hide her children's faces.

The star is a proud mum of three

"I choose not to show my children's faces because I know that's the deal. If you show one photograph, then they're out there," she recently said on This Morning.

"They're for consumption for everybody, which is why I choose not to do it."
