Holly's summer break following the Schofield drama

Documenting her summer adventures in the weekly Wylde Moon newsletter, Holly shared moments from her holiday in Portugal. Her time away has given her an opportunity to reflect on the recent turbulent months, during which her former co-star and best friend Phillip Schofield was axed from ITV. She wrote:
'It really has been a case of blink and you’ll miss it this summer – in every sense! I can feel myself clinging on with every fibre of my being as conversations about school start to drip feed back into our life. I even popped the obligatory September kit list on the fridge this morning having got the kids to try everything on to see what we need.'
In July, The Mirror reports surfaced indicating that Holly was poised to extend her This Morning contract, securing a larger salary than her current estimated £700,000 per annum from the network.
