During the episode the presenting duo speak to Rochelle, 31, and Holly asked how Blake’s big sisters have been, she said: ‘They are brilliant. They are constantly all over him and fighting about who’s going to hold him and who’s passing me the baby wipes… but it’s really nice, and I think because he’s a boy there’s no competition, they are just trying to be mini mummies!’
Watching Rochelle holding up baby Blake to say goodbye at the end of the chat, Holly gushed, ‘Oh I want one of those…’ Phillip said, ‘No, you don’t! To which Holly replied, ‘I do!’ Phillip responded, ‘No you don’t, you’ve got enough!’ But Holly insisted, ‘OK… but I do!’
