Turner has shared much of her childbirth journey with her 250,000 Instagram followers.

In May, she said she felt like a “lucky girl” after being treated to a lavish baby shower by friends and family.

Turner, who plays Stacey Slater in the BBC soap, met her husband as teenagers and the pair married in Ibiza in September 2017.

She is also known for turns in Bedlam and Switch, both in 2012, as well as the hit series Our Girl between 2013 and 14.
