Holly will also be expecting a sweet tribute from her own children this Mother’s Day.

What has Holly said about motherhood?
While Holly is hugely popular and successful fronting This Morning with Phillip Schofield, she always wanted to be a mother herself, first and foremost.
“All I ever wanted to do was to be a mum,” she once told Hello! “It wasn’t like when I was at school I thought, ‘Oh, I’m going to be this big career girl’.
“Being a mummy is definitely my most favourite job of all.”

It was her mother, Linda, who helped her realise how to be the best caregiver to her brood.
“Being a mum is my greatest achievement and yet still my biggest daily challenge to get right,” Holly said in a video on Instagram.
“I have the best blueprint of how to be a mother from just being raised by the best mummy in the world… fill them with love… that’s what mine did… love you mumma!”
