She captioned the photo: "And just like that it's time to say goodbye to the show temporarily and get ready to welcome our little girl. Thank you to everyone who sent their best wishes tonight.

"You'll know that I'm prone to a good cry on the show at the best of times but seeing those messages at the end, especially from mum and dad and Charlie really set me off.

"Thanks to our viewers for helping keep me sane during this last year and a half and for the warm welcome every night.
