Holly Willoughby was joined by Emma Bunton and pals for a Friday night Zoom party - as the country continues to be in lockdown amid the coronavirus crisis.

This Morning star, Holly, is stuck indoors like the rest of us during lockdown but she has a whole host of famous pals to keep in touch with.

And on Friday she hosted a catch up with Spice Girls bestie, Emma, All Saints star Nicole Appleton and two of their other girlfriends.

She captioned a shot of their night in, “Oh I miss these faces so much... apart and yet totally connected.... miss my girls.”

Holly, 39, regularly posts about her girlfriends and it’s clear the mum-of-two is missing them during the coronavirus crisis.

When Holly and her pals catch up it's usually a no-expense spared affair and last Christmas the girls enjoyed a festive train ride in style on board the Bellman British Pulman - where a dining experience cost a cool £400 per head.

Holly hit the headlines at the start of the month when she announced she was quitting Celebrity Juice after 12 years on the show to spend more time with her family.

It comes two years after Fearne Cotton stepped down as team captain and was replaced by Paddy McGuiness.

Announcing the news on Instagram, Holly said it has been "one of the best jobs in telly" and thanked the team for their hard work. "Thank you @celebjuiceofficial for 12 years of fantastic chaos... It’s time for me to hand over my team captain seat to some lucky lucky person... whoever that is, know you are about to get one of the best jobs in telly working with one of comedies finest... @keithlemon ..."

A friend of Holly's said, "She absolutely loves being on the show, she has loved it but she felt it was time now.

"She wants to spend more time with her family, filming Celebrity Juice takes up an evening that she could be spending with her family.

"She is, after all, one of the busiest women in showbiz."
