She said: "Thank you @celebjuiceofficial for 12 years of fantastic chaos… I can’t quite believe what we’ve done and how quick that time has gone.

"Thank you to you all for watching.. we’ve always had the loudest and best audiences.

"…it’s never felt like work and always been to me like a night out… Thank you for all your ingenious ideas and hard work… all good things must come to an end and nothing lasts forever…

Holly told her yet to be named successor they were in for an incredible time.

She continued: "It’s time for me to hand over my team captain seat to some lucky lucky person… whoever that is, know you are about to get one of the best jobs in telly working with one of comedies finest… @keithlemon …

"Where to begin… I remember starting this journey with you and saying ‘I think this might work’… my goodness me it did… three friends, you me and @fearnecotton … and that is what is at the heart of it.. friendship…

"I love the bones of you Lemon! Thank you for making me laugh for twelve years… I’ll be back as a guest and just to make sure someone is keeping you in check… if I don’t see you through a week or next week or the week after… know you are always in my heart…."

The TV presenter, 39, who has three children with her producer husband Dan Baldwin, 45, wants to spend more time with her family.

Leigh Francis posted a touching tribute to the star on his alias Keith Lemon’s Instagram page.
