Posted for her 5.3 million Instagram followers, the clip showed Holly's pet standing at her feet and peering up at her longingly before stretching out and wrapping its arms around her leg.

Holly has two cats, Bluebell and Teddy.

This Morning viewers will be familiar with Bluebell, as the cute moggy was on the show last year.

The cat was given some expert attention during a segment on pet grooming after Holly admitted to giving the poor thing a questionable haircut herself.

She explained: "Under her chin here she has really maney fur and when she was licking it, it was getting stuck in her teeth, so I thought, right, I can help you with that, Bluebell."

"I just snipped it but it looked very straight and jagged. I had never heard of taking a cat to be trimmed."

In 2016, Holly welled up on This Morning as she spoke about the death of her beloved cat Roxy.

Hosting at the time with Ben Shepherd, she explained: "We went to sleep and we left her and when we got up she had passed away in her sleep.
