The TV star and husband Dan Baldwin share three children together: Harry, eight, Belle, six, and two-year-old Chester. In a recent interview with HELLO! magazine, Holly opened up about her brood. "All I ever wanted to do was to be a mum," she revealed. "It wasn't like when I was at school I thought, 'Oh, I'm going to be this big career girl'. Being a mummy is definitely my most favourite job of all, without a shadow of a doubt."

Holly, meanwhile, recently caused a stir on Instagram when she bared her slender legs in a tiny pair of black shorts. Viewers are more used to seeing Holly at work in knee-length skirts and dresses, and on Tuesday afternoon she surprised fans with her off-duty look, writing: "Today is a short shorts kinda day!" Fans were quick to comment on how incredible Holly looked, with one writing, "Wow you are gorgeous" and another posting: "No matter what you wear Holly you always look so effortlessly elegant and stunning."
