‘She stayed in one of Port Lympne’s two lodges which allows visitors to stay with the lions. It’s an incredible experience and is very luxurious.

‘They got to spend the day being driven around the safari park before settling down and enjoying last night together in a lodge as a family.’

They also mentioned that it has been a ‘tough few months’ for Holly and that it was ‘special’ for her to get to enjoy the day with her family.

Meanwhile, Greg Rutherford’s position on Sunday’s live Dancing On Ice show was hanging in the balance this weekend after he sustained an injury.

The former track and field athlete, 37, who is partnered with professional Vanessa James, 36, already skipped the dress rehearsal, with future performances in doubt.

An ITV source told : ‘Greg missed the dress rehearsal due to injury so at the moment it’s touch and go if he will make the live show tonight.’

It comes after Greg scored his highest mark so far during last week’s show, doing a Salsa to Ricky Martin’s La Bomba.

The duo were full of confidence for the routine which judge Oti Mabuse described as ‘sexy and sultry’ and praised the duo’s chemistry.

Greg advanced through to this week with a score of 30.5, while Claire Sweeney became the latest star to leave the series after landing in the dreaded skate off with Lou Sanders.

Greg’s injury comes right after he recently opened up on his guilt from his partner Vanessa getting hurt on the ice, saying he felt ‘absolutely awful’.

The pair were practicing ahead of their second live performance for Movies Week, when Greg accidentally dropped Vanessa in a move gone wrong. 

Speaking to the Express on Sunday, Greg explained: ‘We practised one of the flows that we were doing and I basically threw Vanessa completely wrong and really hurt her. 

‘I felt awful, absolutely awful. That really did hit me quite hard but it hit her harder as she hit the ice.

‘It was one of those things that you have to remind yourself every so often that you have to be as respectful as possible to the ice and the movement you are performing. 

‘The sport is a very dangerous sport so you have to be on your game, there’s a hell of a responsibility.’

He added that he is constantly focused on making sure Vanessa is safe when practicing dangerous lifts, out of fear that she could be hurt.

He explained: ‘I’m probably the tallest person on the show by four or five inches and I’ve got a really long wingspan.

‘When I lift Vanessa above my head, she’s very, very high and if something was to go wrong, touch wood it never does, but it’s a long way for her to fall.

‘I’m always very conscious about that, I want to protect her as much as possible.’

Dancing On Ice continues on Sunday 11 February at 6.20pm on ITV1 and ITVX.
