The 39-year-old presenter has decided to walk away from the ITV comedy show after 12 years in order to spend more time with her family.
A source told The Sun on Sunday newspaper:
‘Holly has absolutely loved her time on the show – it’s been a huge part of her life, and has really helped to expand her fanbase over the years.
‘But she feels now is the right time to bow out and wants to free up a bit more of her busy schedule to spend with her family’.
Holly – who has Harry, 10, Belle, nine, and Chester, five, with her husband Daniel Baldwin – remains on good terms with Celebrity Juice host Leigh Francis.
The source said:
‘She’s still the best of pals with Leigh Francis and will continue to support the series’.
Leigh, 47 – who appears on the show as Keith Lemon – has also posted a glowing tribute to Holly on his Instagram account.
The comedy star wrote:
‘Love this woman. What an incredible sport. Always willing to get her hands dirty and join in. One of the boys but all woman. A wicked sense of humour and very easy to look at. Don’t look into her eyes though, cos she can make you do anything. What a lady! King of the ladies! (sic)’.
In response, the This Morning host wrote:
‘Aww… what a lovely thing to say… love you Lemon. (sic)’.
