While the This Morning star opens up about many aspects of her private life via her lifestyle brand Wylde Moon, one thing she has vowed never to discuss is her weight, diet and exercise – and for a good reason.

In an interview, the star once explained she doesn't like to discuss it because there's so much more to her than her weight – and we couldn't agree more. But she has another valid reason for keeping quiet on personal topics.

"I actually avoid talking about my diet and exercise regime because I have interviewed so many people affected by eating disorders and I know that some people in chat rooms can really fixate on other people's diets," the presenter told Prima Magazine in 2017.

"I just can't contribute to that. As long as I'm healthy, that's good enough for me. I'm quite active and I try not to let the way I look be the main focus because it's not the most important thing."

"I know you've been on here talking about your own battle with weight loss and you tried every diet in the book and none of those worked for you and you went for more drastic measures which, for you, worked out brilliantly."

Holly went on to explain she preferred not to delve into other people's diets, preferring to focus on other aspects.
