Holly Willoughby is getting in the festive spirit with a gang of her famous friends in a magical snow globe on The Thames.

.

The chic lunch time rendezvous comes after the telly fave was struck down by a stomach bug and forced to pull out of her This Morning presenter job for three days last week.

But she has bounced back to health in time to chill out with her famous friends Nicole Appleton, Shiarra Bell, Christine Lampard and Niki de Metzin in the Capital.

Sharing a selfie of the London get-together the group looked on top form as they prepared to tuck into a lunch time feast.

She told her followers on Instagram :"What a beautiful afternoon… heart full of love and belly full of fondue."

Holly looked relaxed and beamed back for the picture wearing a cosy roll neck jumper and her new shorter hair was styled with a sweeping side parting.

She continued: "Thank you @jimmyspopup for hosting us in one of your magical snow globes … missed you @emmaleebunton"

Christine looked similarly snuggled up in a stylish chunky white knit while Nicole opted for a vibrant yellow, grey and black striped jumper.
