Loose Women panellist Nadia Sawalha made sure she was on hand to help co-presenter and good friend Stacey Solomon in the kitchen on Wednesday. Taking to her Instagram page, the mum-of-three - who recently welcomed little Rex with boyfriend Joe Swash - shared videos of Nadia teaching seven-year-old Leighton how to do some cooking. "Cooking lesson with @nadiasawalhaandfamily," wrote Stacey. "Honestly could cry right now, he's in his element. I love you auntie Nadia."

The fact that they've been so amazing and understanding has made it a lot easier for me but also meant the guilt has set in a little stronger because they're just so bloomin good. I really do need to get out of the house at some point in the near future too before I go stir crazy but honestly, the thought of having to wear actual clothes and interact with other humans is really daunting. When did anyone else leave the house after birth? Is 3 weeks too long? Send help..."
