Holly has previously admitted she is looking forward to seeing parents embarrassing their children.

She said: “We all know how embarrassing parents can be and nobody knows you better than they do.

“I can’t wait to hear what humiliating secrets they’ll be revealing and see who will regret leaving their love life in the hands of their parents.”
