Speaking out about her family’s health scare on social media Holly said: “Just wanted to say thank you for all your kind messages.
“Over the last few days two of our children were unwell and had symptoms of COVID.
“In line with government guidelines we were waiting for the results of the tests before I could return to work, couple that with just wanting to look after two poorly children, it meant having two days away from This Morning.
“I chose not to alert everyone to this because my focus was looking after them.
“Thankfully, all tests came back negative and everybody’s feeling much better.
The presenter also shares children Belle, nine, and Chester, five, with producer husband Dan Baldwin.

The Sun reported Holly wanted to be able to take more control and improve her “work-life balance”.
A source said: “Lockdown has given her time to reflect and think about her future.
“In many ways, it has become the perfect opportunity to start afresh and it was just time for a change.
“She is really excited about managing herself and having more say over decisions on a day-to-day basis.”
