What did Holly say?

Holly beamed as she replied: “That’s amazing! Yes! Of course. I’ve seen every single episode.”

Turning to Phillip Schofield, she asked, “Are you serious” to which Phil said: “Yeah.”

Holly gushed: “Aw guys! I mean you’re going to have to kill me off really quickly because I’m terrible at acting.”

Phil exclaimed, “No you’re not!” to which Holly said: “Come on.”

Neil joked: “That’s never held us back in Midsomer… you’ll be fine!”

Nick added: “We could kill you or you could be a murderer or something.”

Holly said: “If you kill me, could I die by eating chocolate because I saw an episode where somebody died by eating chocolate and I was like, ‘That’s the way to go.'”

I mean you’re going to have to kill me off really quickly because I’m terrible at acting.

She added: “I can’t focus on anything else but that, that’s so exciting. I want to come up there now!”

Neil said: “We’re very excited. Please say yes Holly. I don’t know when this will be.”

Holly said: “Fine, I’m there, whenever you need me! I can’t believe it. That’s one of the best things to happen to me.”
