Steph later shared a preview of the episode that showed panellist Ian Hislop laying into Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's recent ITV documentary about their tour of Africa.

"It wasn't terribly enlightening, the documentary," Ian said. "It was called A Journey to Africa, which got a brief mention and then it was back to themselves... I just think it doesn't help anyone."

Steph's stint on Have I Got News For You follows her appearance at last month's TV Choice Awards.

Steph, who is now believed to be around eight months pregnant, wowed at the event in a black fitted dress as she showed off her bump.

The news presenter revealed that she was "absolutely thrilled" when she learned she would be welcoming her first child with her TV executive partner.

Steph has previously opened up about her terrible struggle with morning sickness, which hit her hard at the beginning of her pregnancy, but it seems she's feeling much better now.
