The This Morning presenter took to her social media to share a sweet photo of her family on holiday.

But unlike her standard family photos, the usually private TV presenter included all three of her children in the adorable snap.

Sharing the candid shot with her nearly 6 million followers, the mum-of-three uploaded a sweet picture of her three children 10-year-old Harry, eight-year-old Belle and five-year-old Chester enjoying an evening on the beach.

In the shot, which the star uploaded goodbye to the family’s half term holiday, the three little ones are sitting on the sand together watching the sun set over the horizon of the sea.

‘Sun, sea and sandcastles,’ Holly captioned the post, ‘goodbye for now ✨’.

Fans and friends loved the adorable post, with the post quickly raking up hundreds of comments and thousands of likes and many taking to the comments section to express their admiration of the snap.

‘What beautiful heart warming picture,’ wrote one. ‘Thank you for sharing it 👍’.

‘Gorgeous photo ⭐️⭐️⭐️,’ added another, ‘they all look so grown up! X’.

A third commented, ‘what a beautiful photo and lots of lovely memories made ❤️’, while another agreed, ‘Nothing beats family time and memories, beautiful photo ♡’.

For last week’s school holidays, the family headed off to the Algarve in Portugal to spend their week off for half term.
