The star has been giving her fans updates throughout her pregnancy after announcing the news back in August last year.

Earlier this month, Lucy hit back at trolls who cruelly branded her “fat”.

“God she’s gone fat in the face and I never noticed that massive mole on her back before it’s not very nice!” wrote one person.

Hitting back, Lucy wrote on Instagram: “Yes I have a mole on my back and have gained weight eight months pregnant.

“Just a couple of the lovely comments about me today – thanks guys.”

She later shared a funny snap of herself holding a big gold spoon while surrounded by treats including cake, ice cream and what looked like custard.

Lucy wrote: “This is what I say to all the haters. Thanks for all the lovely messages.

“I think it’s about time social media platforms and online publications put a stop to all this vile trolling… But most importantly the people writing these comments please, please seek help and find out where all your bitterness stems from!

“How would you feel if someone said the comments you have, to you or someone you love? Let’s just BE KIND!!”
