Writing in her OK! column, Emily has also explained the importance of knowing basic first aid, and told fans she's doing her best to "stay positive" after the government's decision to delay the lifting of lockdown.

I recently took Millie and Theo to the Natural History Museum. They absolutely loved it and kept telling me how their favourite things were the bugs and mammals.

They already can’t wait to go back again. I shared some pictures from our day out on Instagram and someone commented saying that they thought Millie was me!

She is really tall and like my mini me. She has my eyes and skin but her face is actually more similar to Pete’s. Both she and Theo are very grown-up now and they definitely have their own personalities.

Millie is very independent and active, but she’s also very chilled, whereas Theo is very cuddly but the opposite of chilled! They are both really loving and kind which is what I love the most about them.

It’s a shame that the full lifting of lockdown restrictions has been pushed back until July 19. It would be so nice for things to start to go back to normal. Luckily for us as a family there isn’t a lot that we can’t do at the moment, aside from going abroad, so we are trying to stay positive.

I’m sure a lot of other families feel the same, but I do really feel for everyone who had big events planned or for the businesses that still can’t open. At the same time, it wasn’t entirely unexpected as we’ve been knocked back so many times over the last 18 months.

At the end of the day the Government has to follow the data and scientist’s advice, but we just have to hope that July 19 really will mean the end of restrictions.

We’re so lucky to have the NHS


Stacey Solomon has praised the NHS after she had to take her son Rex to hospital for stitches on his lip. Some people have negative things to say about the NHS, but we are so lucky that we can walk through the door and have free healthcare as there are so many countries where that doesn’t happen.

It’s very stressful when one of your kids hurts themselves so I’m sure it was a worrying situation for Stacey. When Theo needed his tongue tie procedure I just had to try and not be a doctor and trust in the professionals as a mum. They did a brilliant job and were very reassuring, but it’s still a horrible situation.

Knowing CPR is so important

Footballer Christian Eriksen’s collapse during the Euros shows just how important it is that as many people as possible are trained in resuscitation. Basic CPR is simple to learn and something everyone should know. Luckily Christian was in a public place where they were medical staff on hand and a defibrillator, but a lot of the time it doesn’t happen like that. To require full CPR and make a full recovery so quickly is extremely lucky.

I saw the video of him having chest compressions on the pitch and it was really distressing. Out of respect for him and his family i think it wasn’t ideal that it was shown, and if the outcome hadn’t been positive it would have been even more awful to watch. It’s something for broadcasters to think about for the future, but hopefully there won’t be a next time.

Very sadly, every so often you do hear of an athlete or professional sports person collapsing or becoming unwell when playing sport. There are lots of reasons why this can happen, for example sometimes they may have an undiagnosed condition that is revealed during exercise. Having said that, exercise still has huge health benefits and I would always encourage people to stay active if they can.
