‘I just went and had my cervical screening test and I just felt the need to jump on here and remind anyone who’s putting it off to go and do it,’ she began.

‘Last year, I went and had a small part of my cervix removed and it sounds a lot scarier than it is.’

Holly explained the only reason doctors were able to detect the multiple high-grade cell changes was because she had a cervical screening test.

‘Last year, when I went and had this surgery, I would s**t myself because no one speaks about it and it’s just not something to be fearful of, and it’s something that is so easily preventable.’

Holly continued: ‘If I can convince just one of you to go and do your cervical screening test today, I’m a lucky, lucky lady.’

She then shared a throwback video of herself singing ‘Happy Birthday’ from her hospital bed while high on painkillers following her operation.

‘Can confirm it was not my birthday but I sure look like I’m having a lovely party for one,’ she laughed.

It comes after Holly admitted that despite their picture-perfect image on social media, she and boyfriend Jimmy Nicholson have experienced some hardships behind the scenes.

In a lengthy post on Instagram, Holly shared four photos of herself in tears and admitted she and Jimmy had faked ‘big cheesy smiles’ for the public in the past.

‘As much as we all try to keep it real, Instagram is generally the BEST of someone’s life,’ she explained.

‘These four photos were taken within a few days where we were going through some personal stuff.

‘I sent a pic to my best friend every time she asked how I was because I could hardly string a sentence together.’

'We were a mess, but we turned up, we put a big cheesy smile on our faces, we were seemingly positive, we took photos, and then we got in the car and reverted to the same state,' she said

‘But what the outside saw were the pretty pictures,’ she added. ‘It’s so important to remember that everyone has bad days, months, years.’
