And last week, she revealed the rather sweet concern her daughter voiced during the family’s pandemic isolation.

On today’s (Tuesday, April 7) episode of This Morning, the daytime TV favourite said Belle had expressed concerns about the tooth fairy.

She explained how her little girl had asked if the tooth fairy would still be working to collect children’s teeth. Belle worried she might not, given everyone that now has to practise strict social distancing.

Belle’s fears during lockdown

Holly said on the programme: “This happened in my household; Belle’s got a wobbly tooth, she asked me, you know, we’re in lockdown, would the tooth fairy still be able to come if her tooth were to fall out?”

The show then cut to a clip of New Zealand’s Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern. In it, the PM assured children the tooth fairy would still visit them during the lockdown.

Holly has two other kids with her producer husband, Dan Baldwin. The pair also share sons Harry, 10 and Chester, five.
