Marnie experienced some other strange side-effects during her pregnancy including a craving to eat bath sponges.

Marnie announced her pregnancy in April and at the time, revealed she was due on October 16.

She told OK!: "Because I'd done Geordie Shore I'd convinced myself that I couldn't have kids because of all the alcohol abuse."

Marnie also feared she would be infertile after having an abortion when she was 19-years-old.

She added: "When I look back I definitely feel I made the right decision. I don't regret it. I was so young, I didn't have a job, a driving licence, or any money."
