She's lucky enough to not have to work on Fridays.
So Holly Willoughby ensured she made the most of her Thursday night last night, safe in the knowledge she didn't have to get up early for anything today.
The This Morning host let her hair down as she enjoyed a girls' night out with former All Saints singer Nicole Appleton.

Holly was joined by Nicole inside the venue, who took to Twitter to share a photo of themselves with another friend.
Appleton wrote alongside the image: 'Such fun with the girls @hollywills and @shiarra xxx,' which Holly then retweeted.
