There have been times I have needed to be with my girlfriends in the loo to hold back my hair after downing too many shots.

She said: "There comes a time in every woman’s life when she just needs to escape to the ladies. It’s my refuge if I’m being bothered at a gathering or need to escape from a crowd."

The GMB host said the move towards unisex toilets in schools is also "causing concern among parents".

She claimed that some pupils are even cutting down on their fluid intake so that they don't have to use the toilet as often at school.

As "squeamish" as she may sound, Susanna said the less her hands touch the toilet seat "the better".

She concluded: "There is no easy answer, apart from the refurbishment of buildings to include ladies, gents and gender-neutral conveniences. Until this happens, I’d like to keep a private female space."
