Despite looking cherubic in the snaps, many of the TV star's followers were slightly disappointed to see her support that particular Premier League team.

"Shouting for the wrong team sweetie it's the other reds don't listen to silly mummy lol," joked one follower, while another said: "Shame about the footy team come on Rach." A third commented: "I'm unsure of her loyalties."

In a recent interview with HELLO!, Rachel gave a glimpse inside her family's life. "It's been gorgeous," gushed the celebrity mathematician, when asked how it's been watching Pasha become a father. "My friends always said when you love someone and you see them with a child… he is just amazing with her.

"He's better with her than with me, I've got the secret weapon of boobs and he has to actually learn proper parenting. She loves him, he loves her. Even when looking at a picture of her, his face just lights up - it's gorgeous."
