If I am asked to work my days off and bank holiday during my notice period can these days be used to reduce my notice by choosing to take them in the final days of my notice period?

Is it my choice?

Apologies for the slight delay, my connection dropped earlier. Are these days taken from your holiday allowance?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
No Iam owed 6 days holiday which my employer won't sign off as they will pay me them on my leaving .

They have asked me to cover these extra 2 days which I have said is ok but I would like to have these days given back in Lou at the end of my notice allowing me to leave 2 days early .

What does your contract say about this? What would have been the case had you not been working your notice period and this was a normal week?
