They’ve parted amicably and she’s looking forward to spending more time with her family now she has one less commitment.

Holly has son Harry, nine, daughter Belle, seven, and four-year-old son Chester with Dan.

Holly became an ambassador for Diet Coke in 2017 and has posed for photos and ads for the product.

The Sun reports that Holly and Diet Coke parted ways at the start of the year.

Diet Coke told the publication: "For this year’s campaign, we have no plans to work with Holly, but that’s not to say we wouldn’t work together again in the future."

It comes after Holly stepped away from her lifestyle brand Truly in September last year as she was too busy with other work commitments and family life.

In a statement posted to her Instagram, she said: "After much consideration, I have made the decision to step away from Truly."

She continued: "To launch a brand needs total dedication and at the moment, with so many other commitments, this is not something I feel I can do without it starting to affect my family time at home. I wish Truly all the success for the future."

Truly and the Diet Coke deal were just one of Holly's many projects as she also has a range of bedding and furnishings with Dunelm and announced last year she's become an ambassador for Marks & Spencer.
