Laura Whitmore's 'Celebrity Juice' colleagues Keith Lemon and Emily Atack have revealed the new mum is heading back to work at the 'Celebrity Juice' studio this week
Laura Whitmore is heading back to work on 'Celebrity Juice' days after giving birth.
The 'Love Island' host became a mother last week when she welcomed a baby daughter with husband Iain Stirling.
And her colleagues, host Keith Lemon and fellow team captain Emily Atack, have confirmed the 35-year-old star is returning to the studio to film more episodes of the ITV2 panel show shortly.
The hilarious programme is back on screens on Thursday evening (08.04.21), with clips Laura filmed before she gave birth.
Keith told Metro.co.uk: "I spoke to her via text, she seems all good."
He then asked Emily: "She's back this week, isn't she?"
To which she replied: "I think so, I think she is. I think she insisted she gets back to work, which is amazing. Incredible. She is a soldier, she’s amazing."
Quizzed on whether the newborn will join her mum, Keith said: "I think she is. She is, because Iain told me. He said, 'Oh I’ll see you next week.'"
Emily gushed: "Oh my god, that’s so exciting. I can’t wait to see the baby."
Laura took to Instagram to announce the arrival of her little bundle of joy by sharing a sweet picture of herself and the baby.
She wrote: "thanks for all the kind messages at this time. We are in love x. (sic)"
Meanwhile, the presenter previously revealed she and Iain were thankful the COVID-19 pandemic gave them an excuse to have a small wedding.
The couple secretly tied the knot in Dublin’s City Hall last year and Laura admitted they had always planned to have an intimate ceremony, and the restrictions in place due to the health crisis meant friends weren’t offended not to have been invited.
She said: “We knew a year ago, pre-pandemic, what we wanted to do and we were lucky that we were able to do exactly what we wanted.”
'Celebrity Juice' returns to ITV2 from 10pm.
