She said: "She’s desperately trying to walk, she pulls herself up and is doing that crawling around the edge of the sofa thing. She’s very determined."

She's utterly the spitting image of her father.

Christine said: "Utterly the spitting image of her father, although there’s a tiny little curl starting to grow at the back of her hair, so that’s the one little bit of me that seems to have come through the DNA. Everything else is 100 per cent Daddy.”

Christine also revealed that Frank’s daughters Luna, who turns 14 this week, and Isla, 12, from his previous relationship with Elen Rivas, "adore" their baby sister.

Christine also admitted that she and Frank, who she calls her "soul mate", have never felt the strain that a new baby can sometimes bring.

The star had previously revealed to the Loose Women panel that she didn't know if she was "coming or going" when Patricia was smaller.

She joked: "It takes me 24 hours to get out of the house, I can't seem to pack a bag."

Christine also revealed that she'd suffered from "baby brain".

She said: "I'll leave the house and think, oh, I've left that thing with the dummies. I've forgot that. Then I'm back in again, it's just a disaster."
