Turning to her dog, who was barking loudly, the mum-of-three shouted: "Stop it! They time it perfectly, don't they?!" Speaking of her morning, Helen later said: "It's uncharacteristically calm around here this morning because I'm working this week. My mum has come to stay for the week, because she doesn't live near, so she's got the kids off to school.

"Monday morning when you've got to get the kids to school is just... It's the same drill every day but somehow it's always chaos! 'Get the socks on, get their shoes on, where's their school bags?!' So mum's in control but she forgot to put her granny magic onto the dogs, sorry!"
