Holly recently admitted she has struggled with her body image at times since giving birth to three kids, but now views her body as "incredible".

She said: "I have had three babies and your body does change so much. Sometimes you look in the mirror and think you don't really recognise the body that is looking back at you but that body gave me three of the most important things on this earth.

"That body did an amazing thing. It carried your baby into healthiness and then you have that example of how incredible your body is.

"It's a case of looking at your body in a different way as opposed to the beautiful thing that you remember. You have got something better than that now."
