Holly also revealed that she was wearing a pink floral midi-dress from LoveShackFancy via Beach Flamingo.

The summery smocked frock costs £450, and features an elasticated shirred mid-section meaning it can be easily slipped on and off, as well as voluminous sleeves which can be worn on or off-the-shoulder.

According to the website, it is “the perfect wear-any-time-any-place dress”.
