    Charlotte, who welcomed son Noah in January last year, recently showed off her impressive body overhaul after shedding three stone.
    The TV personality had gestational diabetes during her pregnancy with Noah and had to cut out all junk food – but soon returned to unhealthy eating after giving birth.
    She said: “When I was pregnant I had to stop all eating my chips and gravy and everything else I loved. 
    “So after I had Noah I made Matthew go and get me McDonald’s. I was like, ‘Get to Maccy’s now, it’s been five months!’
    “And then I carried on eating as normal, doing no exercise – literally walking between the sofa and the fridge. 
    “But I was getting quite a lot of backlash on my Instagram. I’d been speaking so openly about the diabetes that people were telling me I couldn’t go back to eating the way I had been because I could end up with type two diabetes.” 
    Charlotte then saw her doctor and was told she was dangerously close to being put on insulin and decided to transform her body and lifestyle, before launching her new fitness platform Chazza’s Belleh Blitz.
    She said: “Hearing that threw me. Being a new mum and imaging not being around for Noah… I thought ‘how am I gonna do this? I hate exercise, I hate eating leaves… how am I going to do it?’
    “I still have my chips and gravy but it’s just not extra, extra, extra large portions. I used to have large fish and chips, sausage on the side, covered in gravy – it was just unnecessary. But I’m still enjoying myself, and I still have prosecco but just not to the extreme that I used to.”

    Writing alongside the photos, Emily penned: “Proud isn’t even the word.
    “My mother playing Penny Spencer Wright in After Life, reminding everyone what an absolute comedy legend she is.
    “I remember the first time I ever saw her on stage in Edinburgh when I was about nine years old, and someone came over to me and said ‘your mum is one hell of a woman!’ – I didn’t really know what that meant then, I do now @katerobbins”.
    In response to the social media tribute, Kate thanked her daughter and penned: “Err. Thank you dear daughter.
    “Love you so much. (But all three of my children know how much I love them)”.
    Emily’s followers were left stunned as they flooded her post sharing their surprise that the actress was her mum, who has also appeared on EastEnders and Phoenix Nights.
    One said: “I knew I recognised her” followed by a laughing face emoji.
    “Thought I recognised her,” another shared. “Absolutely brilliant show and actress x”.
    A third wrote: “Never even know she was your mother. Learnt something new today. Everything must run in the family genetics”.
    “Ahh, it was annoying me where I knew her face from” a fan commented.
    Emily’s mum Kate rose to fame in the 1980s as a singer and managed to grab the number two spot on the British charts with her song More Than In Love.
    At the time she was also starring in the soap opera Crossroads.
    However, she was mostly known for her long stint in the political satire show Spitting Image, which focused on parodying major figures in the 1980s.
    She voiced the Queen, Princess Diana, Emma Thompson and even Kylie Minogue, plus many more.
    Behind the scenes, Robbins wrote the first theme tune for the TV series Surprise, Surprise and has also gone on to appear in a number of TV shows including comedy Dinnerladies, Citizen Khan and Holby City.

    They had always lived together and Carol found she had a new lease of life following her passing, which led her back to Wales.
    She said previously: “From the age of 21, I’d loved looking after Mum. I employed her full-time from when I was 25. We always lived together.
    “It’s taken time to come to terms with losing her.
    “Now that Katie and Cameron are grown up, I realise this is the first time in my life I’ve had no responsibilities.
    “It’s an amazing feeling of freedom. I’ve fulfilled my duties and earned the money, and looked after a lot of people.
    “Now it’s about what I choose to do. I’m relaunching, re-engaging and ready for this incredible new chapter.”

    Inside The Responder star Martin Freeman’s incredible £5m home with wine cellar and landscaped gardens

    THE Responder star Martin Freeman may be on the front line in the new police drama, but he has plenty of time to kick back and relax when at home.The actor is the proud owner of a sprawling £5million mansion – fit with a wine cellar and landscaped gardens – round the corner from his Sherlock co-star Benedict Cumberbatch.
    Martin Freeman’s new pad boasts five bedrooms

    Martin, 50, took out a mortgage with royal bankers Coutts & Co to buy the property in 2019, shortly after his split from actress girlfriend Amanda Abbington.
    A source said of the purchase: “Martin is a major star and his new home is an A-list property. It is an area beloved by film and TV stars and he loves it there.”
    The stunning North-West London property is said to have a huge winner cellar, perfect for entertaining guests, and plenty of garden space.
    Elsewhere in the home there are plenty of cosy spots to enjoy the sprawling views of the stunning landscape surrounding the property, which is hidden away from prying eyes.
    There appears to be a small attic room at the top of the house, complete with a single chair to make for the perfect reading nook.
    Martin’s stunning home is just a stones throw away from his Sherlock co-star Benedict, 45 – but the pair have not always got along well enough to spend time at each others’ properties.
    In 2018, Benedict called Martin “pathetic” for saying the expectations of critics and fans made the show “not fun any more”.
    Martin, Dr Watson in the show, had been looking for a new pad since splitting from actress Amanda Abbington, 47, in 2017 after 16 years together.

    They have two children and lived together in a £1.4million house in Hertfordshire. Martin has since found love again and is in a relationship with Rachel Mariam.
    Martin rose to fame as hapless worker Tim in BBC comedy The Office.
    As well as Sherlock he has starred in The Hobbit and Black Panther and is now one of Britain’s best-paid actors, worth an estimated £20million.
    He was recently seen in the first episode of new five-part BBC drama The Responder, where he plays Chris Carson, a police officer on the edge.
    Viewers are set to follow protagonist Chris during his night shifts in Liverpool, where he is pushed beyond the limits of his training and his mental indurance.
    Viewers were left delighted by the first episode and took to Twitter to heap praise on Martin’s impressive Liverpool accent.
    One wrote: “Fair play to Martin Freeman. 5 mins in and that’s a more than acceptable accent.”
    While another said: “Martin Freeman’s scouse accent is spot on. Non native accents usually give me itchy teeth but this was seriously impressive.”
    This one commented: “Well Martin Freeman, the accent is amazing – I’m impressed.”
    Speaking about the role, Martin told the BBC: “When Laurence Bowen first sent me the scripts he was very excited and after reading the first few pages, and I felt this was really something else.
    “It wasn’t a drama that was written by committee, it was unfiltered Tony Schumacher, and I really liked that he put whatever he wanted on the page.
    “Tony has been writing for a long time but the fact that this is his first television drama means he is far from having gotten into a comfortable groove or formulaic.
    “He just put on the page whatever the hell he thought needed to be there and that is really exciting.”
    The Responder was first announced back in February 2020, but filming was delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic..

    She told her followers: “The living room is getting there!! Curtains still to go up and pictures and shelves to go on walls (finishing touches) but we are so nearly there (2 years later 😅).”
    Her bedroom has a huge double bed with a dark green bed frame, which is placed in front of a wall covered in elephant themed wallpaper.
    It also has a huge hollywood mirror placed on top of a set of drawers.
    The beauty is a huge fan of bright and colour patterned wallpaper as her dining room boasts floral prints with a pink neon sign that says “we’re all mad here”.
    Sarah was axed from Hollyoaks last year after she joined adult website OnlyFans.
    The star had been stripping off online for several weeks, but bosses thought her raunchy online content is at odds with the show’s young audience.
    She refused to quit the site despite the threat of losing her six figure salaried job on the Channel 4 soap and were unable to “reach a resolution”.
    The TV star recently made her content on the site free after raunchy pictures were leaked online.
    A source said: “Sarah Jayne is horrified but not surprised – it’s really not ideal as she’s only just launched her OnlyFans account.”
    Sarah Jayne’s rep tells The Sun: “This is just par for the course with any online platform. Content gets leaked and it’s the same for all creators which isn’t right at all, but given how successful Sarah’s profile is on OnlyFans – in the top 0.5% of all creators worldwide – it’s really not an issue.
    “The team at OnlyFans are amazing at getting leaks taken down quickly. Sarah is just extremely grateful for the constant support and amazing feedback she gets to her content from her community on OnlyFans.”
    Sarah first hit our screens as Mandy Richardson on Hollyoaks in 1996.
    She enjoyed six separate stints on the teen-focussed soap and most recently reprised her role in 2017.
