Holly Willoughby adores going on holiday with just her friends and will never forget her first girly break after having kids

Holly Willloughby loves going on "friend-trips".

The 36-year-old presenter - who is married to television producer Dan Baldwin, with whom she has three children, son Harry, seven, daughter Belle, five, and two-year-old son Chester - treasures time away with her female pals and will never forget the time she went away without her kids for the first time, and had such a good time hanging out with her mates, they didn't even go out.

She said: "Whilst I love getting away with my family, some of my favourite holidays are 'friend-trips'. I have so many memories of really happy, carefree and hilarious times. I had a brilliant girls weekend in Ibiza a couple of years ago.

"It was the first time I had been and it was great fun. It was my first weekend away without the children with the girls and we actually didn't go out once. Instead we stayed in and had our own mini disco!"

The 'This Morning' star is fronting a new campaign for Diet Coke, 'Get The Gang Back Together.'

And research from Diet Coke has revealed almost a third of people would rather go on holiday with their friends than their family, while 44% admitted they have more fun if they go away with their pals than their partners or relatives, while 42% are more "energised" when they go away with their buddies.

The study also showed 81 % want to spend more time with their friends, with just over a quarter only seeing their close friends less than twice a year.

But it seems that might be about to change, as 46% of respondents have a holiday planned with their best friends this year, compared with just 22% of people who managed it over the last 12 months.

To celebrate the joy of spending quality time with our BFFs, Diet Coke is helping friends across the UK 'Get The Gang Back Together.' Five lucky groups of friends will enjoy a night away in a luxury penthouse hotel in one of five top cities - Rome, Paris, Barcelona, London and Dublin.

Aedamar Howlett, Marketing Director for Coca-Cola Great Britain, said; "This year Diet Coke is all about celebrating those special moments we share with our frie nds. Spending quality time together is what makes us feel happier because of the fun and laughter that goes with it. We're excited to be enabling Diet Coke drinkers to get their friends together - here's to the year of the 'friend-trip!"
