With Autumn fast approaching, much of the public is concerned Christmas could be cancelled as more restrictions are put in place.
Holly is one of those who is worried about how the six person rule will affect family celebrations going forward.
Speaking on This Morning, she admitted she fears having to choose between her mum Lynne or father Terry to celebrate.
Holly shares three children with husband Dan Baldwin meaning the family of five can only have one extra person in their group.

Talking about how it would mean only one of her parents would be able to join the family for Christmas, she expressed her disappointment.
She told Matthew Wright during The View segment: “This is awkward for me. I’m in a family of five.
“Am I going to have to choose between my mum and dad on Christmas?”
“I’m feeling very confused and conflicted,” Matthew replied.
“The rules are different everywhere else in the United Kingdom.
“You can’t have your parents over on Christmas Day but you can go on public transport?
“For the life of me, I can’t make any sense of it.”
“I guess the other thought is, how is anyone going to police these rules,” Holly shared.

“The government are going to have marshals to monitor people.”
Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced the new rule earlier this week, explaining: “I’m sorry about that and I wish we did not have to take this step.”
He added the new measures were to avoid a second national lockdown.
Mr Johnson added he was also hoping mass testing would allow the public to resume some normality in the coming months.
“In future, in the near future, we want to start using testing to identify people who are negative – who don’t have coronavirus and who are not infectious,” he explained.
“So we can allow them to behave in a more normal way, in the knowledge they cannot infect anyone else with the virus.”
The new six person rule will come into effect from Monday and those breaching the rules could be fined £100 and repeated offences could lead to further fines of up to £3,200.
This Morning airs weekdays on ITV at 10am.
