Holly, 38, is famously close with her family and previously revealed that she speaks to her 70-year-old mum Lynne "several times a day".
"I still run everything past her," she told The Mirror.
"If I'm about to buy a pair of shoes, I'll go, 'Mum, do you think I should be doing this?'
"It's silly. I'm a fully grown woman, of course I can buy shoes. But I still like to talk to her about everything."
