Holly, who marked her 40th birthday during lockdown last month, shared a snap on her Instagram page on Tuesday as she prepared to host the morning hsow.

Wearing a white long-sleeved top with a pale blue pleated skirt, the star captioned the picture: "Morning Tuesday… It’s a year to the day that Prime minister Borris Johnson first put us into national lockdown… feeling rather reflective about how far we’ve come and how far we’ve got to go…

"Sending love to you and your families and especially thinking of you if this Year has taken away someone you love ❤️…"

She added ahead of the show: "Today at midday we will be marking this milestone by joining the nation in a minutes silence to remember those we’ve lost… see you on @thismorning at 10am."



She then went on to update her fans on her oufit and wrote: "skirt by @mango knitwear by @purecollection shoes by @emmylondonofficial ✨"

Holly, joined by Phillip Schofield, have continued to host This Morning throughout lockdown in line with social distancing measures.

Like others across the country, Holly has been spending more time indoors.

The blonde beauty is married to Dan Baldwin and together they have three children – 11-year-old Harry, nine-year-old Belle, and six-year-old Chester.


At the start of the year, Holly admitted she was struggling with homeschooling her kids.

The Dancing on Ice presenter described how she's "giving up" on enforcing her strict rules about how long Belle, Chester and Harry can spend in front of a screen.

During a phone-in about home-schooling, Holly asked the expert: "Can I ask a question on behalf of a working mum and parent of three who is struggling…?

"My big fear is that we've all worked really hard not to put our kids in front of screens.

"Now here I am with three children spending online learning in front of a screen, then when they finish they want to talk to their friends, again on a screen, then they might want to play and that's on a screen.

"I'm suddenly like, am I just throwing all this out the window and give up holding back the time of screen time."

At one point the star had sparked concern after she missed the first two episodes of the ITV show of the year, with co-host Phillip revealing that it was due to "childcare issues".

When she made her return Holly confessed: "I think we are just about holding on".
