Beaming as she posed for the camera, Holly looked incredible in a gingham mini dress complete with puff sleeves and twee bow detailing.

Channelling Princess Diana (who loved a gingham print), Holly championed small business and independent British fashion brand Olivia Rose the Label by wearing her 'Picnic Dress', steering away from her usual high street hits and luxe designer labels.

Holly's outfit post comes after what has proved to be her most controversial Instagram post to date.

On Monday, the TV star divided fans with a photograph of herself holding a crystal to her eye along with the caption: "High vibrations… [fairy emoji]"

According to Healthline: "There are a number of different types of crystals, each filled with their own healing abilities for the mind, body and soul." Many are thought to promote the flow of good energy, aid with meditation and help cleanse the mind and body of negative thoughts.

The star divided fans with her controversial post

Really, this ancient form of medicine has been used by those who practice spirituality for generations – but many of Holly's fans found it downright strange.

"Why do famous people always cover one eye? Is it some type of cult? We see you…" said one follower, whilst another likened Holly's pose to "satanic symbolism".

Not everyone saw Holly's spiritual post as threatening, with many fans commenting on the healing powers of crystals. "Celestine is a beautiful connection through to the angelic realm [love heart emoji]. I'm a crystal healer and reiki healer."
