Helen has revealed that she's keen to have baby four after previously saying her third baby would be her last after suffering from severe morning sickness hyperemesis gravidarum.

“When you feel so dreadful you do think ‘no way, I will absolutely never have another baby’," she told the Mirror.

"But as soon as Charlie arrived I just thought 'you’re so worth it.'

“I wouldn’t rule out another. I’ve always said in my head I wanted four."

Helen got engaged to Preston North End footballer Scott in May 2018 and they also have daughters Matilda, six, and Delilah, three.
