It certainly isn’t the first time Josie has opened up to her followers on the struggles of parenting.

In August, the former Big Brother winner admitted to suffering from “motherhood issues” after being separated from her son.

Reggie had left to go camping with his dad, leaving Josie upset at home.

She shared a loving snap alongside the tot as they relaxed on a hammock and wrote: “I’m always slightly moaning I don’t get any time for myself and now he’s away and I finally get that time to myself, I spend it looking at pictures of him.

Josie and ex-boyfriend Terry split four months after Reggie was born.

Why did Josie move in with her ex?

The former couple recently moved back in together for the sake of their toddler son during lockdown.

Speaking on Loose Women, Josie admitted to the panel that she and Terry had “never got on so well”.

She said: “He’s one of those people you can’t live with, but can’t live without. We were really scared because he’s severely asthmatic – he finds it hard to breathe at the best of times.

“We waited for three weeks and none of us had any symptoms. On the fourth week I learnt about the viral load – so I couldn’t take Reggie to the supermarket any more, so I said: ‘You’re going to have to move in.’

“So he’s moved in and it’s only taken a pandemic and a year-and-a-half and we’ve never got on so well.”

Josie added: “We still stay in separate rooms but yeah, I love him to bits.”
