“It’s hard because I’m naturally a people pleaser,” she wrote. “But it’s paid off and I have never felt stronger or happier. 

“Most importantly I never forget how lucky I am to have such love and true friends surrounding me. Thank-you for your positivity and support!! Here’s to an even bigger 2020! #newdecade.”

While Schofield labelled the row claims as “hurtful and wildly untrue,” Holden claimed she was ghosted by the This Morning presenter when she tried to offer an olive branch

Speaking on her Heart Radio show, she said in June: “I did offer to meet him for a coffee months ago, he didn’t reply to my text. What can I say?

“I’ve moved on from it, Jamie [Theakston], you need to move on from it.”

Feud claims and broken leg aside, Holden has had a bumper year. 

In November she delightedly returned to her former drama school to receive an honorary doctorate while her and Theakston’s charity stunts helped raise over £4 million for Global’s Make Some Noise. 

Judging from her Instagram, she’s about to celebrate the new year in a tropical destination.
