Holly explained to fellow This Morning star Alison Hammond on stage: "We have a big wedding to look forward to on Saturday. Have you not heard what I am doing? You are going to love this!

"It's my sister's 40th on the same day so I've got a big party for her birthday anyway, all day, and then obviously the royal wedding, so extra excitement.

"Then, this week on the old family Whatsapp group that we all have, my sister Kelly said, 'I've got an amazing idea - for anyone that's been married - go and get your wedding dress and wear it to the party.'"

Holly continued: "I dug it out - I took it into This Morning to the big steamer as I haven't got one of those. It is filthy! I haven't had it dried cleaned. It's a bit ripped."

She added: "I will look a bit like Miss Havisham."

We doubt that!

Holly previously revealed on This Morning that her wedding dress got grimy at the bottom because she was forced to kick off her high heels and walk around bare foot.

According to Hello, she previously said: "I know brides want glitzy, sparkly, amazing high heels but I fell into that trap and ended up walking around barefoot all day.

"If you look at the hem of my wedding dress now, it is covered in dirt and grime!"
