However, Holly’s kind gesture may not sit well with some neighbours, who previously complained about the flag.

Meanwhile, back in 2017, it was claimed Holly and Dan angered locals after installing the huge flagpole above their £3 million property.

At the time, the pair were accused of “lowering the tone” in the neighbourhood.

A neighbour told The Mirror: “We don’t hang the Union Jack or St George flag outside our properties, so why should she?

“It’s in one of the most desirable streets, we’re either Conservatives or Liberal Democrats in this area ­traditionally, not BNP.”

ED! has contacted Holly’s rep for further comment.

Furthermore, Holly and Dan have made a series of changes to their home.

The couple built a new “super basement” in 2016, while an extension and swimming pool was added in 2013.

The Sun reports that the battle centres on sunset provisions by which agents collect commission from a celebrity who has left them.

A source told the publication: “This is a sad finale to what was once a hugely successful partnership. But YMU seem unhappy she’s set up on her own and feel entitled to maximise a sunset provision to claim commission on the renewal of contracts.

“This means, if she signed a new three-year deal with ITV worth £10million, say, they’d be entitled to around £1.5million of it.”

The agents also represent Phillip Schofield, Amanda Holden and Ant and Dec.
