TV presenter Christine Lampard has admitted that since having her baby she struggles to get organised for leaving the house.

The Newtownards native admitted that her biggest problem is that she often leaves the house before realising she has forgotten an essential product for baby Patricia.

Speaking on ITV's Loose Women on Monday, she said: "I feel alright, I think! Your head is just all over the place. My little one is nine months now and I don't know whether I'm coming or going. It takes me 24 hours to get out of the house. I can't seem to pack a bag."

She added: "I just can't seem to get myself out of the house in the time that I need to. If I need to get out the house at 1pm, I'm not going to be there. I'll leave the house and think, 'Oh, I've left that thing and the dummies.' Then I'm back in again, it's just a disaster."

Christine previously admitted that since becoming a mother to Patricia she has "missed home" as her parents Mina and Frederick Bleakley still live in Northern Ireland.

The 40-year-old said: "I'm lucky enough that my parents were there and very much part of that the sort of massive day.

"But since it, I've missed home terribly," she said. "I'm not brave enough to take my baby on the plane to Northern Ireland yet. My parents have come here all the time though."

"I haven't quite ventured that yet so they've come to me the whole time. It makes you fully appreciate what your mum and dad have been through with you and you want your parents to be very much a part of it. She's the first grandchild in our family so she's very much adored."

Christine and football manager husband Frank Lampard met at the Pride of Britain Awards in 2009. He later proposed while the couple enjoyed a holiday in America in 2011.

The couple had a four-year engagement before wedding at Saint Paul's Church in Knightsbridge, London, in December 2015, with Ed Sheeran performing at the Mayfair reception.

Frank, the manager of Championship side Derby County, has two other children ­- Luna (13) and Isla (11) - from a previous relationship with Spanish model Elen Rivas.
