As Charlie congratulated Steph, she admitted receiving messages from fans ‘was quite overwhelming yesterday.’

Referring to an incident last year that saw fans mistakenly congratulate her on a pregnancy, Steph added: ‘Last year I was like ‘I’m not [pregnant] with child, I’m with pot belly as that’s what I was with but now I am actually growing a human.

Speaking to MailOnline in 2018, she said: ‘I’d definitely be in the wrong job if I got offended by comments like that. Even my own auntie asked me once if I was pregnant after seeing me on the telly – that’s just life on camera.’
