The parents will no doubt be thrilled with the safe and sound arrival of their first child after Camilla revealed over the weekend she had passed her due date.

Joking on Instagram, the TV star said: "I do have a habit of overcooking things and it looks like this little bun is no different! Happy to have an extra few days to relax now though, after spending some quiet time offline getting organised.

"Now it's just about relaxing, keeping up with the laundry and restocking the snack cupboard each time @jamiejewitt_ eats all the hospital bag snacks (and then secretly restocking it again when I eat them all) #40weeks."
