She then went on to explain that her co-star Dr Hilary was the one who told her she was going into labour.

She said: “Dr Hilary was on his way in, so Debbie in wardrobe phoned him and he said: ‘It sounds like she’s going into labour but don’t tell her. I don’t want her to worry. St Thomas’s Hospital is down the road which has the best unit in the country for premature birth.’

“I just turned up at the hospital, then it slowly dawned on me, okay fine. It’s going to happen.”
