Laura Whitmore is returning to Celebrity Juice filming just days after welcoming her first child with husband Iain Stirling.

The 35-year-old gave birth to a baby girl recently, with the couple announcing her arrival on social media last week.

While the new parents have yet to share a photo of their little one’s face, or even her name, her Celeb Juice co-stars are ready to welcome her back to the set with (socially distanced) open arms.

Speaking to Metro.co.uk ahead of the new series, which is kicking off on Thursday, Keith Lemon told us: ‘I spoke to her via text, she seems all good. She’s back this week, isn’t she?’

Emily Atack continued: ‘I think so, I think she is. I think she insisted she gets back to work, which is amazing. Incredible. She is a soldier, she’s amazing.’

‘She said everything went smoothly, so she’ll be going jogging this morning,’ her co-star laughed, branding her ‘superwoman’.

When asked if she was bringing the baby with her, he said: ‘I think she is. She is, because Iain told me. He said, “Oh I’ll see you next week”.’

‘Oh my god, that’s so exciting,’ Emily replied. ‘I can’t wait to see the baby’.

Laura announced her new addition on April 2, shortly after she had been pictured cradling the newborn.

Posting the first snap on Instagram, the Love Island host simply penned: ‘Thanks for all the kind messages at this time.

‘We are in love x.’

As well as Laura’s return, Celebrity Juice boasts some epic upcoming guest stars, including ‘trooper’ Eamonn Holmes, Sophie Ellis Bexter and Ella Henderson.

They will also be joined by regular panellist Maya Jama, following in the footsteps of Gino D’Acampo.

Spilling the beans on how the radio host has slotted into the chaos, Emily said: ‘Oh, she’s brilliant. I love that girl. She’s so funny, she really makes me laugh. She’s so confident, brilliant and funny.

‘She brings what you want to have in Juice, which is all those things.’

‘She’s like a potty mouth Disney character, she’s like Pocahontas with a potty mouth,’ Keith joked.

‘I think we have the best looking show on television. Especially with me. It’s an incredibly good looking programme.’

Well, he’s not wrong.

Metro.co.uk has contacted Laura’s reps for a comment.
