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

She shares Harry, 13, Belle, 11, and eight-year-old Chester with husband Dan Baldwin.

Holly and her husband Dan married in 2008 in a lavish ceremony in Amberley Castle.

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!”
