Justice Clifford Einstein said, "I have given close consideration to the question of whether or not the circumstances presently before the Court which do, it seems to me, show a calculated disregard of the rights of Biscayne as well as a cynical pursuit of benefit".

Biscayne Partners Pty. In 2003 she fired her then-manager Scott Michaelson (who owns Biscayne Partners Pty Ltd) by fax, 15 months before her contract was due to expire. In 2002 she won the British GQ Award for "Woman of the Year". The first single State Of Mind from her next album of the same name then debuted and peaked at #8 in the UK and peaked at #14 in Australia, but the album didn't get into the top 50 of both charts.

Her third single Naughty Girl peaked at #3 in Australia and at #16 in the UK.

In fact she was dancing wearing flesh-coloured underwear, and the footage of her dancing was then digitally retouched to create the illusion. The video for Kiss Kiss was notable for the impression that she was dancing naked, with her nudity only concealed by strategically placed lighting. Holly's first single was Kiss Kiss which was released in 2002 (based on Tarkan's hit single Simarik). Valance's big break came when she landed the role of Felicity 'Flick' Scully in Neighbours.

She was educated at the Star of the Sea College, a Catholic high school located in Melbourne, Victoria. Holly is related to the late British comedian Benny Hill—Hill's cousin was her grandfather.
