The presenter, alongside Emily Atack, was revealed last year to be the new Celebrity Juice captain and would join Keith Lemon on the show following the departure of Holly Willoughby.

And Laura told how she kept her baby news a secret from her colleagues until she was ready to tell the world her happy announcement.  

She told Stella magazine: ‘I filmed Celebrity Juice and everyone around me was drunk, while I was secretly pregnant and being physically sick.’

Meanwhile, the TV presenter revealed how she has no plans to give up working when she becomes a mother.

Laura, who is expecting her first child in the coming weeks and told how her mother Carmel having a child ‘out of wedlock’ in 1980s Ireland taught her ‘there’s nothing you can’t do’.

Speaking to The Telegraph, she said: ‘All my friends from school are doctors or teachers. The fact that I even thought it was possible to go off and work at MTV came from my mum because her attitude was: “If you want to, then why not?” 

‘When people ask if I’m going to give up work this year because of the baby, I’m like, “Why? Mum did it in ’80s Ireland!”‘

Laura has documented some of her pregnancy on social media and previously said she is due in ‘early 2021’. 

The Irish beauty is hoping to be back at work this summer for the next series of Love Island which was pulled off air last year due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Laura insisted she has been told the show is coming back this year and is ‘praying’ the vaccine will have kicked in to allow the series to go ahead.

The former MTV host replaced Caroline Flack as host of the dating show after she stepped down while facing charges for allegedly assaulting her boyfriend Lewis Burton.

Caroline tragically took her own life in February of last year, with Laura saying she ‘always admired how strong’ her friend was. 

She said: ‘When I was asked to do Love Island, my only concern was whether I could cope with the scrutiny that comes with it. She was so good at accepting that. And so that scared me, because I realised that it did affect her.’

It was revealed in November that Laura and Iain had secretly married in Dublin and they announced they were expecting a baby the following month. 

She said: The fact that I even thought it was possible to go off and work at MTV came from my mum because her attitude was: "If you want to, then why not?" (pictured with her mother in 2013)
