Despite not getting far with her 'angry voice', Helen seems to have her household pretty under control, as she showed fans days earlier by working out at her gym with her baby in tow.

The TV host shared two snaps of herself at David Lloyd where she was allowed to take her baby with her to work out. One picture showed Elsie having a nap in her buggy, with Helen writing: "Using nap time."

One fan told her: "That is inspiration captured right there in one image - no wonder you look so amazing."
