Holly Willoughby looked like she was having the time of her life at a gig on Thursday night.
The This Morning presenter shared pictures on Instagram of her watching The Streets pal Mike Skinner in concert, alongside her close friend Nicole Appleton of All Saints.
Thanks to their friendship with Mike, the women got to watch from backstage, with Holly, 37, wearing a slogan T-shirt reflecting her fun that read: “Good girls go to heaven, bad girls go backstage.”
“I mean.. all my favs in one pic…” Holly captioned a selfie of her and Nicole, with Mike visible on stage in the background.
She also shared numerous video clips from the gig, and posted another snap of her and Nicole beaming, writing: “Post @mikeskinnerltd #streets excitement!”
But some of her followers seemed to take exception to Holly’s night out.
The Celebrity Juice star has Harry, eight, Belle, seven, and Chester, three, with husband Dan Baldwin.
“When are u home with your kids????” asked one social media user.
“Why is Holly always away from her children?” questioned another.
But many fans leaped to Holly’s defence, saying it was ludicrous to suggest she couldn’t go out and have fun just because she’s got kids.
Others pointed out a few hours at a concert could hardly be called ‘never being at home’ and Holly is rarely ever seen on nights out.
“Let the women enjoy herself at a gig,” wrote one.
“What the hell, she goes to one gig and she’s missing out on time with her kids. What a crazy thing to say. Mums can have time off too,” said another.
“This comment is LOLZ ridiculous!!!!! Mums aren’t ever allowed out!?” wrote a third.
“All work and no play makes…a sad life. The bairns are probably in their beds anyway!” pointed out a fourth.
Another said: “Wow…. A mum had a night out…. Truly shocking lol.”
And another wrote: “Everyone needs a social life, even when you have kids, get a grip.”
Holly rarely shares pictures of her home life on Instagram and when she does, she never shows her children’s faces as she wants to protect their privacy.
The presenter has often spoken of how much she loves being a mum.
“All I ever wanted to do was to be a mum,” she once told Hello! magazine. “It wasn’t like when I was at school I thought, ‘Oh, I’m going to be this big career girl’.
“Being a mummy is definitely my most favourite job of all, without a shadow of a doubt.”
Do you think Holly is entitled to a night out as a mum-of-three? Or should she stay at home? Leave us a comment on our Facebook page @EntertainmentDailyFix and let us know what you think!
