She added: ‘Go and be with Grandad… he’s been waiting for you… love you… miss you…’
Following the heartbreaking news, Holly dropped out of hosting This Morning’s Tuesday edition and was replaced by Rylan Clark-Neal today, who joined Phillip Schofield to present the show.
Addressing Holly’s absence, Phillip told viewers: ‘Holly’s not here today. Sadly her nan has passed away and today’s the funeral.
‘We’re sending lots of love to Holly’s family and especially her mum Lynne.’

Holly has a close bond with her family, and often shared photographs with her grandmother, as well as her mum, Lynne.
The mother-of-three has spoken about her close bond with her own mother, previously revealing that she still speaks to Lynne ‘a few times a day’.
She told The Mirror: ‘I still run everything past her. If I’m about to buy a pair of shoes, I’ll go, “Mum, do you think I should be doing this?”
‘It’s silly. I’m a fully grown woman, of course I can buy shoes. But I still like to talk to her about everything.’
Just last week, Holly shocked fans when she shared a selfie with her 71-year-old mother Linda, with her followers marvelling at how similar they look.

Both showcased flawless complexions, grinning from ear-to-ear, with each of the ladies wearing their blonde locks loosely around their shoulders.
They even sported matching black dresses – with Linda accessorising with silver necklaces.
Holly is famously close to her family – just getting back from a ski trip with her husband and their three children.
The ITV host shares her children Harry, nine, Belle, seven, and Chester, four, with husband of 12 years Daniel Baldwin.
Last year she gushed over her mum and dad Terry’s marriage and how she talks to Linda about ‘everything’.
Speaking to The Mirror, she said: ‘My mum and dad have been together for years and years, and they’re a real team… My mum instilled in me that importance of family life and being married to somebody who is a real partner.
‘From watching her with my dad over the years, I knew that was something I really wanted for myself.’
Holly took her family – including her parents – to film I’m A Celebrity.. Get Me Out Of Here! in November, when she stood in for Ant McPartlin on the series.
