As her friend, Rebecca Wall, marked her birthday, Helen shared a small video of the pair enjoying some time on the beach in South Shields. They clinked champagne glasses together, before Helen also shared some family moments from the trip, including her mother holding baby Elsie and young son Ernie pushing his baby sister in her pram and some snaps of the family all together in the sun.

During the interview, she joked: "I am so sorry, you probably thought that was a calf drinking or something, well by the third one... The first one, I remember he would do a little thing like scuff his nose, and I would take him straight to A&E, by the third one, you're like 'Oh, they will be fine.'"

Recalling an old anecdote, Helen shared: "My friend has got three, and her child was holding a sausage, and my dog licked the sausage. I said, 'Oh my gosh, I am so sorry the dog just licked the sausage!' and she went 'Oh, it's fine, it's the third one, first one would be in hospital, the third one no point'."
