The Welsh star was visibly nervous as she told co-host Ronan Keating about her surprise pregnancy last month, saying: "I feel really nervous all of a sudden... it just seems like a good time to share some news with everybody - and the crew in the studio for the first time!

"Lockdown has been anything but predictable, and we've had some really unexpected news. Baby number three is on the way!"
