The former Saturdays singer - who has been open about her battle with depression - is grateful she and husband Wayne Bridge had plenty of space for their kids Parker, seven, and Carter, five, to run around while schools were closed due to the coronavirus pandemic and though she found it "hard" being at home without work, she's pleased she still had some things to do.

She told heat magazine: "We're just so lucky that we have a big house and garden, so we can't complain.

"As with every other working parent, it was very hard at times, but the boys adapted really well.

"Obviously, I have spoken out about my mental health in the past, and although I found it hard with having less work, I loved the fact I had my podcast to focus on as it gave me an outlet. We were fine."

The brunette beauty admitted she's feeling "broody" because so many of her friends have got pregnant over the last few months.

She said: "I kept saying to Wayne that I'm pretty sure a lot of people will come out of it either divorced or pregnant. Thankfully, it's the latter.

"So many of my friends are pregnant now, which has made me a little broody. I just love babies."

However, Frankie insisted she isn't definitely planning to have a third child, particularly because Wayne isn't on board.

She said: "One day I am broody to have another one and the next, I'm not.

"It depends what frame of mind you find me in. I'm not so sure Wayne is on the same page. I mean we are so lucky we have two healthy kids - and I cannot wait to be an auntie to my sister's twins when they arrive soon."
