Charlotte welcomed her first child at 21 and her second at 22, and insisted at the time that she would do everything herself.

In the same chat, she opened up about her quiet life being far from the one she had when she found fame aged 11, being thrust into the spotlight.

And said the prospect of having another baby felt "brilliant," although she was worried she was going to miss alcohol again, as she did when she was pregnant with her first two.

She said: "And now it’s great, it’s lovely. I don’t know if I’ll ever be a party girl again. It feels very different this time around."
