Meanwhile, earlier in the show, Holly spoke about missing her mum as she and Phil watched other viewers reuniting with their loved ones.

What did she say?

After seeing a woman reunite with her mum, Holly said: "I’m so jealous.

"I just feel like, I know it’s so lovely and I’m so happy for them, but I just want to hug my mum so bad and my dad."

Last week, Prime Minister Boris Johnson said Brits are now able to form 'support bubbles'.

The new rule means single adult households can now join another household to prevent loneliness.

Unfortunately, Holly doesn't fall into this category because her parents live under the same roof.
