She's been keeping a low profile since the news of her pregnancy was announced, but Emily MacDonagh is back in the spotlight for a worthy cause.

The junior doctor, who is expecting her second baby with husband Peter Andre, has shown off her growing baby bump in a military green thigh-skimming dress.

Emily, 27, sweetly cradled her bump as she spearheaded a new campaign to encourage other expectant mothers to have their free NHS flu jab.

Emily MacDonagh is due at the end of the year

"Like all mums, I have worried about the health of my baby during this pregnancy and my first, so I understand it can be difficult to know what precautions are the right ones to take," said Emily.

"However, from my training as a doctor I know that having a flu vaccination during pregnancy is so important for protecting you and your baby from the complications of flu."

The junior doctor is campaigning for pregnant women to get flu jabs

"That's why I've teamed up with Boots UK to encourage other expectant mums to have their free flu vaccination courtesy of the NHS," she added. "I want to reassure them that it is a safe precaution, recommended by the government as it helps you develop immunity to the virus and some of this protection is also passed onto your unborn baby."

Mums-to-be can claim their free flu jab in 2,000 Boots stores across England and Wales until February.

Peter and Emily are expecting their second baby

Emily and her husband Peter, 43, are set to welcome their second child by the end of the year. The couple are already the proud parents to two-year-old Amelia, who they welcomed just a few months before their wedding.

The Mysterious Girl singer announced his baby news in the cutest way, by sharing an Instagram photo of Emily's scan. "OMG dad to be AGAIN :))) Brilliant. So so happy," he wrote.

Peter has also revealed that his wife is working part-time, although she absolutely loves her job as a doctor.

"She's doing a lot of hours at the moment," he said during an appearance on Loose Women. "Even though she decided to take part-time, some of the weeks have been 50, 60-hour weeks which is a lot because obviously she's now pregnant. She loves her job. I have to say that I have really seen, more than ever now, how hard a mum's job is."
