The photograph was originally shared to Instagram by Holly’s author sister Kelly, who described her parents as ‘the couple who showed the rest of us how to do it’.

Holly’s heartwarming post comes after it was revealed that her company has earnings of more than £305,000.

The TV star departed from YMU Entertainment, which also represents her co-host Phillip Schofield, Ant and Dec and Davina McCall, after 13 years in 2020 to establish her own company.

And earlier this week, she filed the first annual accounts for her all-female company Roxy Management, which sees her manage herself.

She also has advertising deals with household store Dunelm and high street giant M&S, and she charges £25,000 for speaking engagements, plus has lucrative deals for ads on social media.

And she shows no signs of slowing down as she has also launched her own lifestyle brand called Wylde Moon in September.

The online store began taking orders in October and its launch coincided with the new moon. 

In February, Holly celebrated the launch of the brand’s first fragrance – The Wild – which retails at £42.

Holly has described Wylde Moon as an online space to empower women, explore crystal energies and offer fashion and beauty tips.

Explaining her hopes for her website, Holly wrote for the launch: ‘I want WYLDE MOON to be a place where I can share the things that I love, the lessons that I’ve learnt, the things I see and instantly want to share with others.’

Elsewhere, Holly has been fronting Freeze The Fear With Wim Hof with Lee Mack and was blasted with snow by giant cannons in her first harsh challenge, Snow Storm.

Holly and comedian Lee, 53, braced themselves for the ‘bone-chilling’ blizzard in which they were tasked with walking along icy logs as a demonstration to the contestants.

Carrying a giant flag each, they were to mark their place in the race by planting it in the ground before withstanding 10 seconds of the storm face-on. 

Lee explained: ‘It’s been designed with Wim’s blessing of course to build up your tolerance to the cold as you’ll be entering what can only be described as a bone-chilling snow storm.’ 

Holly changed into a white and black bobble hat, black leggings, and a soaking wet white T-shirt featuring the text, ‘What would Wim do?’

The model won the race since her co-star lost his balance and was forced to begin again, before a horn sounded to confirm her victory.

Ripping off her hat and goggles off, she shouted, ‘Brain freeze! I’m out of breath!’ with Lee agreeing, ‘That’s hard right?

Holly then told the celebrity contestants: ‘You’re going to hate it!’ before revealing they would be split into two teams and forced to emulate the hosts – but in their swimwear.
