Speaking on Loose Women, the small-screen star addressed her second pregnancy and admitted it had been an “isolating” experience during lockdown.
Christine said: “I have got two very excited parents back in Northern Ireland who cannot wait. It’s been very weird if I am being honest, as we’re very close.
“Christmas was meant to be that tiny bit of light at the end of the year and sadly it didn’t happen, so mum and dad haven’t touched the bump, and haven’t seen it in the flesh. Thank goodness for Skype.”
She added: “It feels a bit more isolating. Family and friends can’t put their arms around you, you do miss that contact and it’s definitely a big shift from the first time around.”
