In a new interview, the 37-year-old TV star said that she often finds herself asking mother-of-nine and fellow farming presenter Amanda Owen for tips on how to keep her young sons in order.

She told The Express: "Whenever I see [Amanda] I'm like 'what shall I do about my kids with this? What should I do with my kids for that?' She's got nine and I've got two so whenever I feel overwhelmed I'm like 'this is fine it's only two'."

When asked by The Sun whether she would consider growing her brood of nine to ten, 46-year-old Amanda teased that fans would have to "wait and see".

She said: "I think I'm too old to have a tenth child. I don't know, wait and see. There was never any family planning, so who knows? Don't let anyone tell you what you can't do. People are quick to say to a mum-of-nine: 'You can't do this, you can't do that'."
