Tess has also revealed she follows a predominantly vegetarian diet with white meats such as fish and chicken but tends to avoid too many refined carbohydrates.

"If I eat refined carbs or foods that have the potential to bloat, I notice the baby pouch again. It's never as flat as it was before, unless you're Gwyneth Paltrow and spend your entire life dedicated to the cause," she joked to Women's Health, on the subject of how her two daughters have changed her body.

The doting mum-of-two further told Health & Wellbeing: "Dinner is usually rice, vegetables and chicken, or I’ll make fajitas, and we’ll do roast chicken on the weekend."

And the TV star has a clever hack to avoid snacking. "I find that making smoothies with wholesome ingredients and eating healthily in front of the children really encourages them to reach for the good stuff too and it stops them asking for chocolate. It’s good for me as my energy doesn’t slump afterwards, and I’m not reaching for sweet stuff to pick me up again," she told Instagram fans.
