In fact, all she was missing was some red sparkly shoes and a scruffy pet dog!

What did This Morning viewers say about the outfit?

Many of Holly’s Instagram followers commented on the post when she uploaded it earlier today.

One said: “Getting Dorothy vibes from this gorgeous dress.”

Follow the yellow brick road!

Another quipped: “Follow the yellow brick road!”

“As always, you look beautiful, but I think red shoes and a little dog should finish this outfit off,” said another.

Another quipped: “Just missing the red slippers and the basket and your the double of Dorothy. Phillip can be the scarecrow.”

“I don’t think you’re in Kansas any more,” said another.

Towards the end of the show, during a rainbow homewares segment, Holly herself even quipped: “I’m wearing my Dorothy dress today!”

‘Love you, dress awful’

However, proving you can’t please all of the people all the time, not everyone liked Holly’s dress.

Some compared it to their school uniform, while others said it looked like Holly was wearing a tablecloth – or some “pantry curtains”.

“Sorry, love you, dress awful! Tablecloth,” said one Holly fan abruptly.

Another added: “Looks like she pinched someone’s tablecloth!”
