Mollie says: “I’m thrilled to be supporting the British Heart Foundation this February by rocking up in red and joining the fight against heart disease.

Anything goes, as long as it’s red!

"Whether it’s red nails, red lipstick or even red socks, it’s really easy to do and for just £2 you’ll really be helping the BHF continue its life-saving work. Anything goes, as long as it’s red!"

Mollie added: “It is a cause very close to my heart, as my grandfather sadly passed away after suffering a heart attack when I was younger.”

As well as being the leading cause of death, nearly 2.7 million people in the UK are living with heart disease, many of whom struggle with everyday tasks.
