Joss was chatting to author Ella Mills, also known as Deliciously Ella, who is heavily pregnant with her second baby. "Guess what? I am going to have a little baby too!" Joss told her celebrity guest.

"I am so excited to talk to you because I don't know many pregnant women. I am week 17 and I just stopped being really sick all the time. I'm feeling okay. Isn't it mad when you've got someone growing inside of you? Jeez."
