On today's ITV's This Morning, Holly spilled the beans on her meeting with Kate, admitting she got very nervous around the future Queen.

"It was a really lovely night, I met incredible people,and yes, the Duchess of Cambridge was there, we had a bit of tea!" said Holly.

"I got a bit nervous and kept talking! And do you know what I was talking about? This is so me! There was a plate of sandwiches in front of us and nobody wanted to eat as they were all too nervous to eat before she came over, so [laughing] I said, 'when are we allowed to start eating, we are really scared we're going to get cress in our teeth…. I've only just remembered that!"

Holly went on to say that Kate did not disappoint.

"You know I always speak about her an awful lot, I'm a huge fan of hers - and my mum was with me - and she was just so amazing. I know they always say don't meet the people you hold up high, but I have to say, she didn't disappoint. She spent a very long time going around every table talking to people."
