Last month, Holly marked her parents’ wedding anniversary with a touching tribute.

Can’t wait to cuddle you again… love you.

She posted a snap of her mum Linda and dad Brian on their wedding day.

It showed the couple sharing a kiss.

Holly wrote: “Happy 43rd wedding anniversary to these love birds… Love you Mumma and Dadda!”

Back in March, Holly voiced her concern for her parents amid the coronavirus pandemic.

During This Morning, the presenter told Dr Claire Steves: “My mum is older than me, she’s 72, so she’s creeping into that age bracket and my dad.

“As a daughter, because I want to look after them, should I be making sure they’ve got enough food in? But you don’t want to add to this panic of stockpiling.

“What does the infrastructure around that look like?”

Dr Claire said: “Our chief medical officers say people need to take precautions but they don’t need to isolate themselves.

“It might not be long until people with underlying conditions may need to isolate themselves and we need to make sure these people are supported.”
