Whist the Monday blues are an unfortunate shared experience for all, spare a thought for the lovely Holly Willoughby – who is returning to her usual super early starts on This Morning after a sun-drenched break with her family.

Side note- it looks like Miss Willoughby has brought the sunshine back to Blighty with her, in the form of first outfit back on set.

How gorge!

To mark the end of her holiday, the mother-of-three had taken to Instagram to share a rare snap of herself and her youngest son Chester enjoying their break.

In the adorable snap, a make-up free Holly enjoys a cuddle with her youngest – which she has captioned, ‘A week of sunshine and this… now back to @thismorning … see you at 10:30! Xxx’.

Fans have been quick to comment on the adorable post, with replies reading messages such as ‘Beautiful natural photo’, ‘So naturally beautiful!!’ and ‘Such a beautiful mummy pic! Xxx’.

People of Instagram, we could not agree more.

And it would appear that good genes run in the family, as Holly very recently shared a snap of her own mum in celebration of her 70th birthday last week!

Sharing some throwback snaps of her mum throughout the years, Holly is an absolute dead ringer for her mum Lynne.

C’mon people, just look at those genes!

Holly captioned her tribute with a message reading, ‘Total and utter mega babe… then and now!!!! My Mumma… 70 today!!! Love you beyond… Happy Birthday beautiful’.

Fans were quick to comment on Holly’s likeness to Lynne, with replies reading messages such as ‘I can see where you get your good looks from now Holly! Beautiful xx’ and ‘Happy birthday to your mum. I can see where you get your stunning looks from @hollywilloughby xx’.

Ever wanted to be part of a gene pool this much, because us neither. Hope the holiday blues aren’t too bad today, Holly!
