The 41 year-old Britain’s Got Talent judge explained: “So I’m really missing aunty @janetmalinowska and I’m not always as motivated without her!

“But today is a new day! I started my workout whilst Anaya was napping but she woke up after 20 minutes so I thought I’d do it with her!

“I can’t go in as hard as I normally would but at least the workout was completed, I had a good sweat and feel much better for it.

Use your body or baby’s weight

“Working out using your own body weight or your babies is just as good!

“Anaya is only tiny, so the bigger she gets the better! Just try some simple sit ups, backward lunges, press ups & squats, see how you get on!

“Happy Monday #healthylifestyle #workout #selfmotivation.”

Secret pregnancy

Alesha and her partner Azuka also have a six year-old daughter, Azura.

“I think for me, I don’t necessarily go out of my way to keep it quiet,” Alesha told Hello.

She added: “I’m the kind of person that I never feel this need, this strong need to declare everything.

“I think everything in its time. And I think the way the pregnancy was announced, with Ant and Dec doing it on the show, it was really sweet.

“Obviously at that point I couldn’t hide it anymore.”

An ITV spokesperson said: “We have been working with the brilliant production teams at Thames and Syco to find a way of making the live finals work, which were due to be broadcast at the end of May.

“However, in light of the latest government health guidelines and in line with our priority of safeguarding the wellbeing of everyone involved in our programmes, production of the live shows cannot go ahead as planned.

“The live finals will therefore be broadcast later in the year.”

It’s thought ITV will still air the BGT auditions.
