Abbey Clancy tells of guilt feelings on working and leaving children at home

Model and TV presenter Abbey Clancy has spoken of the difficulty of juggling her work with her young family.

The 30-year-old has two young daughters, four-year-old Sophia and baby Liberty Rose, with footballer Peter Crouch.

Clancy, who found fame on Britain's Next Top Model which she now presents, has revealed she sometimes feels guilt for leaving her children at home and going to work.

She told the Mail on Sunday's You Magazine: "I think I'm borderline going mad now. I've reached my limit this week. I'm done, I'm tired. You feel guilty going to work, leaving them [at home] ill."

She added: "I beat myself up about it. When I was filming Next Top Model I had to go away for a whole week to Jamaica. I cried for the 10-hour flight."

But she said that by day two she started to enjoy not having to get up in the middle of the night.

And she revealed that with her career and family life both going well "I do feel as though I've got it all".

"And I don't mean materialistically", she said.

"I'm doing my dream jobs, I love being a mum and I have two gorgeous girls, an amazing family and close friends who support me, and a husband who I adore and who is incredible with the children."

Britain's Next Top Model returns to television screens this week.
