Speaking on the Made By Mammas podcast with Zoe Hardman and Georgia Dayton in July, Jools explained: "I do want to [have another child], but I've got to just mentally check that it's a good idea to do it, and also physically, because I am 45 as I always say."

"But you know Jamie's doesn't," she added. "He's kind of still up for it, kind of, not really, so I think I haven't got long, maybe another year, and then I really will just, I'll shut that chapter off. Because I am very happy and I'm pretty full up at the moment as it is."
