During Thursday’s edition of the ITV daytime programme, the presenter admitted her big day was ’emotionally exhausting’ as she watched Death In Paradise with her three children, before enjoying a ‘very early night’.
The TV star enthused to co-host Phillip Schofield, 58: ‘It was really lovely, obviously got spoiled here on This Morning. It was emotionally exhausting.
‘I got to bed at 8.30, watched Death In Paradise with the kids and then at 9.30 we were all out like that. I’d been going on for a long time!’

‘@schofe for being the best friend and spoiling me rotten… so many memories were made, feel totally blessed and ready to take on this next decade… wanted to give a special mention to @julietsear for not one by 2 cakes!!!

The day before, Holly got her birthday off to a raucous start as she hit the booze at 10am, tucked into cake and enjoyed a beach party.
The broadcaster was surprised with the party in the studio by Phil, and wiped away tears while receiving gifts from her loved ones.
Holly had slipped into a dress her mum Linda, 73, wore on her own 40th birthday in tribute to her, as she is unable to spend the day with her due to Covid restrictions.
‘It was emotionally exhausting!’ Holly revealed a day of her lavish 40th birthday celebrations drove her to sleep at 9.30pm later in the evening during Thursday’s This Morning
As the show kicked off, Phillip told viewers: ‘This is the song [Kool & The Gang – Celebration] we’re playing as it topped the charts on the day she [Holly] was born.
Arriving on set, which had been lit with sparklers, Holly said: ‘That is so cool! I’ve never seen sparklers in the studio. Do they last forever?’
She continued: ‘This is the dress my mum wore for her birthday. I asked mum if she still had it and she sent it up. I told her it’s so 80s and it didn’t fit. I thought this was really special as I can’t be with her today so it’s nice to have this to feel closer to her.’
Revealing how her birthday began, she said her husband Dan, 46, woke her up with the children singing Happy Birthday.
She admitted: ‘By the time I left the house I was already crying!’
Holly was sent an abundance of gifts by her loved ones, including a Colin the Caterpillar cake, which she enjoyed wolfing down while on air.
