“Work, being a mum, mum guilt, juggling work and breastfeeding exhausted, excited for Christmas, don’t feel prepared at all for Xmas,” she added.

When one fan asked if there were ever days when she felt like things got on top of her, Lucy answered honestly: “Absolutely, and I think that anyone who says they don’t, they’re probably lying.”

She continued: “It’s really tough, it’s the hardest job in the world, and I think that’s a really normal feeling.”

“I’ve had it before when he’s started crying at like 5.30am in the morning and I’ve thought, ‘I don’t want to do it today!’”
