It’s been quite hard to keep it secret and they’ve dug out my maternity clothes from three years ago, so it’s all systems go again.

She added: “It’s generally up to the director or costume department to sort of try and conceal it a bit. Obviously, I’m not as big, I’m used to being a lot bigger when I had Franklin.

“So yeah, it’s been alright so far, we’ve managed to keep it to ourselves. I think we’ve done something right, thank goodness!”
