Although Kelly keeps a far lower profile than Holly, the pair regularly attend events together.

Kelly has served as Holly’s plus one on many occasions, including at the TV Baftas.

She celebrated her 2019 TV Bafta win with Kelly and shared a lovely photo of the pair.

Her caption included: “Just dreamy sharing tonight’s @bafta with my sister.”

In an interview with The Guardian in 2014, Holly admitted she and Kelly are like “chalk and cheese”.


She said: “We’re more like friends than sisters. We even bought a place together in Putney.

“You would expect some fireworks, but because we have the same friends and have different roles within that group, none of that ever came into it.

“I’m more likely to be the one to say, ‘everyone back to mine’ and cook for everyone, whereas she’s much better at tidying up.”

Despite the coronavirus pandemic, Holly has continued to present This Morning with Phillip Schofield on ITV.

The pair have maintained social distancing while filming, sitting two metres apart.
