‘[The] fear of being judged in some way, and it actually doesn’t matter, because it had to happen and I feel good about it.’

Speaking on the Lorraine show last week she revealed  what led her to creating Reflections.

Holly explained: ‘For me it felt like the right time to write this book. Working none-stop and, being a mum of three. I’d almost high five myself on the back for it.;

She added ‘That’s great, fine, doable. But when I’d stop I’d lost a sense of who I was.

‘It was born out of me getting to know myself again. Trusting myself a little more rather than listening to the noise around me.’

 Holly also revealed that it was her time hosting I’m A Celebrity back in 2018 which made her realise that she had some important things to work through. 

The presenter said of her time in Australia: ‘It was like that moment in Home Alone where ‘I made my family disappear.’ 

I’ve got space and time to just be me. There was an opening up sorts. A Pandora’s box of sorts.
