Binky Felstead looks beautiful in the picture she posted a day after giving birth. There is no ‘normal’ for what you should look like after giving birth, and the more women who share their experiences, the more we’ll see that spectrum.

For some women, their tummy goes down quickly, while others struggle to ever get it to look how it did before pregnancy, but both are beautiful and normal. Both my bumps were quite small and my tummy went down quite quickly, but that’s the way my body is.

Some women are criticised when they go back to how they were quickly after giving birth and people say they’re setting unrealistic standards, but for some women it’s just the way their body works. To me, pregnancy is such
an amazing thing, whatever your body shape and size.

Dr Hilary Jones apologised on Good Morning Britain after he made a mistake about the self-isolation rules. He said that those who have had two doses of the coronavirus vaccine don’t have to self-isolate if they come into contact with someone who has tested positive, but the current rules state that you do. However, he quickly corrected himself and gave the right information.

I’m 100% backing Dr Hilary on this because firstly, the rules are complicated and they change often, and secondly, doctors are only human and we all make mistakes. Dr Hilary works so hard to be up to date with all the rules every single day and appears on live TV, which is a huge pressure. So to me, it’s absolutely understandable making a very small mistake. I watch him on Good Morning Britain and think, “How on Earth does he do that?” It’s an incredible amount of pressure to be asked difficult questions live on national TV, so I think he does a brilliant job.


Pete and I recently went out for a lovely dinner, just the two of us. It’s such a rare occasion, I honestly couldn’t tell you the last time we went out with no kids! It was so nice to have a date night and relax, but we were home by 8.30pm! Our babysitter always laughs at us and says, “I love babysitting for you because you always get back so early. Most people are out until midnight.” But for us it’s perfect – we don’t drink or do late nights so being home by 8.30pm works!

In a couple of weeks, we will celebrate our sixth wedding anniversary. The time has flown by but they say time flies when you’re having fun! We’ll probably go out for a meal with the kids to celebrate because, as much as we love having date nights, we also love doing things as a family, too. It falls on a Sunday so it will be lovely to do something together.

We don’t have any more holidays or staycations planned for the summer as Pete will be starting the tour for Grease The Musical soon and will be working right through until November. There’s a busy few months ahead so I’m so glad we got away to Portugal when we did.
