The arrival of Holly's parents is no surprise, as the presenter had announced that they would be joining her before she left for the jungle. Speaking to her This Morning co-host Phillip Schofield, she revealed: "The weird thing is, when I first found out, it's very exciting, it's kind of bittersweet obviously, and then you're working out the logistics of how you're going to go and how long for - and the kids are coming with me." She added: "I was speaking to the school and how that's all going to work, and Dan [her husband] and my mum and dad who are coming out as well, and suddenly all logistics are sorted and then I go, 'Oh, there's going to be like spiders and stuff there…!'"
