Holly, who recently admitted that her and Mike Skinner’s school age children have a crush on one another, was letting her hair down at the concert, where she was joined by her pal Nicole and was feeling snap happy throughout the evening.

Critics took to the comments section to pen: ‘works hard certainly plays hard. Missing out on time with her kids that’s sad they must miss her no replacement for mom…
‘Knew she would be here tonight cause she’s not on this morning tomorrow morning… it might sound like I’m criticising hey I work full time too…

‘hence your s**ty nasty response to … I work full time too. I am currently away with my job because I have to due to the distance and I know where I would rather be…snuggled up to my little girl…
