"It's not the best of weather... It's actually throwing it down now. Coat and a hood. Still nice to be outside."

Gentle exercise is said to be one of the best ways to induce labour naturally, as well as sexual intercourse, eating spicy foods, taking herbal remedies like castor oil and acupuncture sessions.

"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.
