Holly's son in the advert is a little boy called Daniel, and after Casper goes missing at Christmas, he writes a letter to Santa asking for his much-loved feline to come home. 

However, time passes and there is no sign of Casper, prompting Holly's character to become doubtful.

But the touching tale has a happy ending, with Holly receiving a tip-off to Caspar's whereabouts in a phone call. Thankfully,

Daniel and Caspar are reunited on Christmas Day. 

The subject will no doubt be close to Holly's heart, as the This Morning star often posts adorable photos of her own pet cat, Bluebell.

It's shaping up to be a transformative week for the famous mum, who has not only landed her first acting gig, but also debuted her newly dyed tresses on Wednesday's This Morning!
