Dr Sara revealed that she had experienced pains for days prior that she thought were muscular - but she now realises these were probably contractions.

She said: "I was probably having contractions for a few days before - i thought it was muscular. I was doing yoga and pilates. I was in active labour only 2 hours."

When Holly and Phil said she seemed in great spirits, she added: "The one good thing about having it at home without any drugs is that the next day you’re bouncing around."

Dr Sara revealed on Instagram that she had named her baby Harris, writing: "Harris Walker born yesterday to the happiest parents alive.

"He is just magical, and we are all doing very well. I can’t stop staring at him!! SQUEE!! My heart is actttually squelching with love!"
