"My little one is very clingy and has zero interest in socialising at all," she explained whilst discussing whether lockdown has brought parents closer to their children.

"I have been her world," she added. "In a great way, daddy has as well. We did have that nice period of her getting to know him and now he's back at work."

With restrictions now easing, Christine explained how this time has been a "difficult" transition for her as a mother. "I found it quite difficult I have to say," she shared. "Even coming in today, it was like, 'Oh my gosh, you're leaving me?' It's difficult to negotiate with a two-year-old. She was very panicky almost."

Meanwhile, Christine has previously heaped praise on her husband for the kind of father he is, saying on Lorraine: "He is a very good hands-on dad… He has to be directed a bit I suppose, but no, he's brilliant, he's great."

She added: "He just absolutely adores her and she is the spitting image of him. She has none of my DNA, there's a tiny little bit of curly hair starting at the back and that's about it. Big blue eyes like her daddy. But no, he just adores her."
