The Mock the Week panellist shares her daughter with her news reader husband Phil Black. The pair welcomed their firstborn in 2018 and Ellie revealed to the MailOnline, that she really struggled in the early days of motherhood.

The publication reported that Ellie explained: "When my daughter was born it was like a grenade was lifted out of my body and my optimism was turned upside down and inside out.

"You're dealing with this physical trauma and a newborn and my mind sort of collapsed. It was just the most intense experience I've ever been through."


The star looked so elegant 

Looking back, the actress thinks she may have had post-natal depression at the time and thankfully is now worlds away from those feelings.

On Saturday evening, the presenter and her dance partner, Johannes Radebe, performed a dramatic Paso Doble to Les Toreadors by Georges Bizet, on Saturday evening, earning them a score of 23.

Earlier this week, the star gave fans an insight into her rehearsal process with Johannes including her Strictly diet - and it's not what you may expect.
