Meanwhile, over the years, Michelle and Mark have been subjected to several questions about starting a family. The TV star, 34, has spoken openly in the past about feeling frustrated by constant speculation about when she will have a baby.

Despite this, it appears her family has been listening to her woes as she revealed earlier this year they no longer quiz her about becoming a mum.

The Brassic actress touched on motherhood in an interview with You magazine, admitting the questions about potential motherhood "affect her so much".

"Mark is asked about it occasionally but I'm asked every single time," she explained, adding that it is nobody’s business what "goes on behind closed doors".

When quizzed on whether she is still probed by her and Mark's families about starting one of their own, she admitted: "Not anymore! People don't mean any harm by it, but they know what the answer's going to be."
