Kelly, 42, took the opportunity to praise her sibling on the brand new venture, lovingly referring to her sister by her pet name “Dolly”.
The TV star took to social media to share the exciting news about her book with her followers.
Her older sister was quick to shower her sister with support, commenting: “Beyond wonderful…beyond proud of you Dolly.”

The Dancing on Ice host described the experience of writing as “intense” and says there are “pieces of her between the pages“.
The book will feature both photographs of the star and illustrations.
Speaking about the project, she said: “I’m so excited to publish this book with Zennor and the team at Century. Reflections is a celebration of how inner and outer beauty can work together in perfect harmony, which hasn’t always come easily to me.
“I hope this starts a discussion and helps readers reflect on their own paths and on where they find themselves now.”
Holly said the process of writing was ‘intense’
She continued: “Writing this book has been an intense experience; there are pieces of me between the pages. It’s a one-off collection of personal essays, internal thoughts and stories.
“The time felt right to share this with you now and as our path goes on and we continue to walk along it, I can’t wait to hold your hand and walk together.”
She will use her own experience to look at “why we might simultaneously feel frantically busy and completely detached, the importance of listening to intuition and what it means to see yourself.”
The TV host took an extra week off work last week to concentrate on a secret project, which looks like it was adding the finishing touches to her book.

Holly and her sister have an incredibly close relationship and openly spoke about their struggle being apart during the coronavirus lockdown restrictions.
The inseparable sisters spent Christmas apart, with Holly’s devastated sister describing it as “beyond heartbreaking” that she wouldn’t see her sister.
Meanwhile, Holly publicly told Kelly “I miss you so much” after she shared an Easter poem written by her sibling during the first lockdown in Spring.
Kelly, who works as a children’s writer, enlisted the help of her sister to co-write a kids book in 2013.
While it might strain most relationships, working together brought them closer together.

Kelly previously revealed that the twins Molly and Maria in their series School for Stars were based on her and Holly.
Kelly also opened up about their close relationship on Holly’s birthday in 2018, writing: “[You’re] my best friend when I’m in trouble, my big sis when I’m sad and my little sis when it’s time to be naughty!”
The siblings also enjoy plenty of holidays together and the sisters were each other’s bridesmaids on their big day.
