Helen Skelton has revealed her due date and opened up about her pregnancy, admitting it's "harder" this time around.

Appearing on ITV's Lorraine on Tuesday 28 September, the TV personality was first asked if she knows when she's set to welcome her third baby with husband Richie Myler, who she already shares kids Ernie, six, and Louis, four, with.

"New Year's Eve," Helen immediately responded, before explaining that her first two children were both born earlier than planned.

She continued: "The other two were early, so my husband keeps saying, 'Can we just not go too far around Christmas cause this is the last one.' And I said, 'Yeah that's fine by me! You can do Christmas dinner and I'll put my feet up.'"

Giggling at her response, Lorraine said: "Yes, that sounds very very good. Yes, because your son Louis – he was born unexpectedly when you were in France on the kitchen floor for goodness sakes."

Helen welcomed her son Louis while alone with her eldest child Ernie in France. Her husband Richie was in England at the time. No one made it to her in time, so she had to give birth on the kitchen floor.

"I know, God bless him," Helen replied. "I can't tell if he was sort of proud or embarrassed. He says, 'Was I born in the kitchen?' and I'm like, 'Yeah' and lots of my friends think it's so lovely, a home birth.

"Nobody wants a load of gorgeous French firemen at their feet while they're delivering a baby, which is what I had…"

Later, Lorraine asked her how Helen was feeling, to which she responded: "It definitely gets harder as you get older or maybe it's just the first two times around, you're doing that thing where you're like, 'I'm independent, I don't need a chair, I don't need special treatment…'

"Whereas now, I'm a little bit older, I've got the kids and I'm working. Now, I'm like, 'Oh, has anyone got a chair for me, has anyone got a chocolate for me?' I'm really rinsing it, you know. It's my last one so I've got to make the most of it."
