Well we don't blame you, Holly! We love her too!

This Morning presenter Holly Willoughby has been gushing about our Emma on Instagram, dedicating a post to the singer's new solo album.

The pair are good friends and Holly was quick to regram a message about Emma's album, entitled My Happy Place.

Amazingly it is Emma's first album in 12 years.

Featuring her fiancé Jade Jones and children Beau, 11, and Tate, 7, the record has a very personal feel and features a selection of Emma's favourite songs.

The mum-of-two explains: “The reason I called the album My Happy Place is because my happy place is with my family, with my friends, listening to music and being in the studio.

"All those things came together on this album.

"As you get older you feel more confident because actually your priorities change, and my family have become my focus, but this album is like the icing on the cake.

"Being able to write, record and perform is definitely that extra sprinkle of magic."

Robbie Williams has collaborated on a version of Spice Girls hit 2 Become 1 while Will Young features on I Only Want To Be With You.
