Holly was stunned last year when a ‘cat seer’ claimed her beloved pet believed she was her mother.

Animal whisperer Jessica Adams claimed to have revealed the secret thoughts of pets in a This Morning segment and studied Bluebell’s paw, telling a stunned Holly: “She actually thinks she’s your daughter.

“She also thinks all the flowers that come are for her, and she also thinks the prizes and awards are hers too, so she’s a little confused there.”

Holly replied, “That’s amazing. Do you know she always eats the flowers when they come?”

Holly posted about her chat amid her issues with her former agents.

The TV star is in a row with former agents over claims over his future earnings.

His bitter row with celebrity agency YMU is over a claim of around £200,000 a year for his latest ITV contract.

She left YMU last year, but he says he is entitled to a percentage of her future earnings under a “sunset clause.”

The Sun also revealed on Sunday that This Morning guest Eamonn Holmes, 61, has left YMU and moved to Intertalent.

It comes after The Sun reported earlier this month that Holly had told ITV she was ready to quit This Morning amid the battle with YMU.

The agents’ clients include Ant and Dec, as well as Holly’s This Morning co-host Phillip Schofield.

YMU claims to be entitled to a percentage of future revenue in contracts. Yet there is no contract in place between Holly and YMU, so her lawyers will argue that the “sunset clause” does not apply.
