The book was close to Jools' heart, as she took to Instagram to praise Elle for her powerful novel. She wrote: "Thank you so much Elle for your wonderful book so excited to get to read it all over again. I Honestly read it from start to finish in a day (normally impossible for me) truly a beautiful, powerful, heart breaking and thought provoking read. Elle you have done little Teddy proud, what an incredible Mum you are."

In May, Jools, 42, touched upon her miscarriage tragedy on social media, where she revealed that she had lost two "little angels", while praising midwives on the International Day of the Midwife. Sharing a picture of herself cradling her youngest, River, shortly after his birth, Jools wrote in the caption: "In celebration of International day of the midwife. Highlighting the magnificent and vital role that midwives play in bringing our babies into the world. We have been so lucky to have been blessed with the most wonderful midwives for each of our 5 children and the 2 little angels we lost."

The doting mum continued: "Kind, calm, warm and gentle. When you are scared and at your most vulnerable the squeeze of a hand and a stroke of your head means more than they will ever know. Thank you xxx." Jools has previously opened up about one of her devastating miscarriages during a chat with Daily Mail, explaining the impact it had on her future pregnancies. She explained: "I had a miscarriage at three months, which makes you so worried once you are pregnant again - it makes it impossible to enjoy the early stages of pregnancy."
