On Wednesday, however, the star shared the sad news that she wouldn't be able to share behind-the-scenes updates for a little while.

It's not because she wants to be away from social media, however – it's simply that her phone needs to be fixed!

Taking to her Instagram Stories, the mum-of-three posted a series of short videos where she explained the situation.

She also told her followers how much she was going to miss chatting with them during the day.

She went on: "I've been putting it off for ages, but it's got to go. It could take up to three days, I might not get my phone back until Saturday, so I'm going to be off here for a little while, which I hate.

"Because I feel like I've got a load of mates on here and I'm not going to be able to talk to them!"
