Rochelle Humes has opened up about how she felt while taking over presenting duties from Holly Willoughby on This Morning, admitting that she often feels Imposter syndrome. The 29-year-old told The Sun over the weekend: "I'll always feel that Imposter syndrome, I think – wondering why everything is going so well. I do get that feeling of, 'Oh my goodness, they want me to do that? Are they sure?'" She continued: "Marvin [Humes] tells me, 'It's because you work bloody hard, this hasn't just happened, you've been grafting.' And I do know that. Sometimes you have to take a step back and recognise that, yes, you did it and you did it really well, rather than assuming you just 'got away' with it."

The mum-of-two did an amazing job working alongside Philip Schofield on This Morning over November and December last year - and she even interviewed Prime Minister Theresa May as part of her hosting duties! Speaking about working with Philip, she also told The Sun: "He's so relaxed, so easy-breezy. He never flaps on or off camera. I've grown up watching him on telly and when he’s as nice as you’re hoping – which doesn’t ever happen, by the way – and so nurturing and lovely to be around, I was just made up. He's a real gent with everyone and he’s the bones of that show."

Former Saturdays singer Rochelle and her husband Marvin share two daughters, Alaia-Mai and Valentina Raine. She has spoken to HELLO! previously about how she juggles her work with her family life, saying: "It's not plain sailing at all, I'm always winging it! Every Sunday, I sit down with Marvin and figure out who needs to be where, and who is working and when. So that takes some of the stress away."
