"What an odd photo," said one, while another added: "…funny combo!"

Piers Morgan

Holly received online backlash after she posted a photo on her Instagram of herself with Good Morning Britain host Piers Morgan.

Captioning the shot of the two smiling, mum-of-three Holly wrote: "Lovely afternoon with @thepiersmorgan … Thank you for a wonderful lunch xxx."

However, the star's fans were quick to share their disgust at the blonde lunching with Piers, who is known for his controversial comments.

Emma Bunton and Keith Lemon

Holly, Leigh Francis (Keith Lemon) and former Spice Girl Emma Bunton certainly know how to party if Gino D'Acampo's admission is anything to go by.

Speaking exclusively to OK! Online, Gino once said: "We did a New Years Eve together, we had everyone at my house – Emma, Holly, Keith Lemon with the wives and husbands.

He added: "They can party! They partied until 5am – especially Emma Bunton – she's definitely the party girl of them all!

"I don't remember what happened. I don't know how many litres of alcohol we drank- we were drinking at the end tequila, prosecco and limoncello."

Holly is very close to Spice Girl Emma, and they often share snaps together during days out.

Wishing Holly a happy 40th birthday, Emma shared a string of snaps with her best pal Holly.
