On the 10th February 1981 and her middle name is Marie. She attended a local independent private school for girls called Burgess Hill Girls School.
2. Holly is from a working class background.

3. She’s recently developed a fear of flying.
She spoke about her fear to the doctors on This Morning recently.
4. Holly was just 14 when she was spotted by a model scout at the Clothes Show Live.

“We’ve both grown up together – I’ve had 3 children and you’ve had 314 issues but now, with a heavy heart, it’s time to bid you a fond farewell,”
8. She’s a very good role model.
Holly has always been proud of her size 10-12 size, and so she should be! She’s been abused online quite a lot by trolls who’ve called her fat, especially after the birth of her children, but Holly has always maintained her figure and always stays body positive.
Speaking on Lorraine, she explained; “I see my body very differently to how it was when I was younger. My body gave me my three children.”
9. She loves wearing heels….in the bedroom.
She once admitted: “I love wearing new shoes during sex and not just because its kinky… I do enjoy saucy games with my hubby but I have found the best way to break in new shoes is to wear them during sex.”

Before Holly became famous her life goal was to go to university and study Psychology.

If you grew up in the 00s, you will have seen Holly on your screen A LOT! Here are some of her best bits on Ministry of Mayhem alongside Stephen Mulhern.
12. If she was stranded on a desert island, her luxury item would be Phillip Schofield.
Holly thinks Phil could definitely give Bear Grylls a run for his money.
She once said; “You wouldn’t expect it to look at him, but in a life-threatening situation you should always turn to Phillip Schofield. On a desert island, he would be perfect. Phil is very practical and would build you an amazing shack as well as keep you entertained with all his hundreds of stories.”
13. Holly was a bit of a wild child back in the day.
She admitted: “There were times when we went straight from the hotel bar to going live on air at 6am.
“It doesn’t help when you read the script and find you’ve got to drink anchovies in custard with some 8-year-old. That day I was sick live on TV.”
After they won big at the NTA’s Phil and Holly partied hard into the early hours, so early, in fact, they went straight to work in the clothes from the night before. It’s still one of the funniest TV moments ever!

It’s safe to say Holly has A LOT of fun filming the show.

It looks like all of those cooking demonstrations on This Morning have paid off. Holly revealed:

Long before her TV presenting days!

Phillip shared the pictures on his Instagram with the caption “Willofield.”

Well, this picture probably explains why…
The morning after the night before…
Just look at the state of them both.
Still in their clothes from the night before…hilarious!
Holly & S Club 7.
S Club 7 weren’t really going to win any awards for their movies but the band’s movie S Club 7: Artistic Differences did help launch Holly’s career.
She appears as a teenager walking down the road with Paul Cattermole in the bands 2000 TV movie, which sees the group fall out as they have creative differences.

Holly received a surprise one night on the show Surprise Surprise. Her father made a shock a visit while she filmed the Father’s Day episode and during the final segment of the show, Holly told the audience:
“There is still one more Father’s Day surprise. Now there is somebody here who would love to see their dad tonight and to find out who that somebody is take a look at this picture.”

Phillip posted this snap on World Gardening Day.
The TV star clarified after much confusion that he had meant to post it, saying: “Lots of confusion whether or not that was an accidental video. Did I make a massive social media blunder? No, I meant to do it. And it’s not really a bottom. It’s just legs and a back.”
