"That said we are doing it again 🤗 It’s been a funky few months… involving intense migraines, vomiting, morning kebabs, first time acne, small acts of violence against fruit, afternoon kebabs, tears, spontaneous snoozes, anxiety and more kebabs."

"The belly comes, the belly goes, sometimes with babies, sometimes with cheese and crisps. Sometimes with exercise, sometimes with stress. Sometimes it balloons with my menstrual cycle, Sometimes it doesn’t.

"One thing is consistent - men I’ve never met will highlight the fluctuation, and offer me feedback. Cheers fellas. It’s VERY important to me and I take it VERY seriously 🤣🤣🤣

"📸 top prods @ickle_becks & @peterruddick - they love a snack chat and I love them for it 🔥❤️"

Speaking about her early ambitions, Nina recalled, "The development at Salford Quays was unfolding before my eyes and I remember thinking, ‘I hope I can get a job at the BBC.'

"In fact, my Dad kept saving clippings from The Manchester Evening News reports on the relocation for me. I remember him saying ‘there’s got to be a job for you there’ and me replying – ‘they’ll never have me’" she laughed.

BBC Breakfast is on weekdays on BBC One from 6am.
