She said: "I thought this baby is going to be born at home in the bath... or in the car."

And Danny added: "I would love to see that CCTV of us arriving at one o'clock in the morning. I was frantic.

"When we got to the birthing suite, I skidded in like Del Boy and Rodney, grabbed the first wheelchair I could find but it had a dodgy wheel so I ended up going round and round in circles."

Georgia continued: "I was sat with my hands between my legs trying to hold in the baby."
