Later in the day she shared a video with her son Leo, building a snowman.

She captioned this: ‘My one and only son. Honestly you wouldn’t believe how soft my Leo was as a baby, seeing him jump in the snow like that is mega achievements ❄️

‘He would cry if the wind blew, if it rained too loud or if the sun shined too bright! He’s still a very sensitive little boy but he’s getting braver everyday. Always here for you my boy!’ [sic]

She shared an insight into her family Christmas over the weekend, explaining what her three autistic children eat for their festive lunch.

Foregoing turkey with all the trimmings, they opted for kid-friendly fish fingers and chips.

Christine, 32, posted this on Instagram, captioning it: ‘Autism doesn’t stop for Christmas day! They like what they like and I want my children to eat so I choose my battles and I don’t want one today!

‘For anyone who may not understand this, food aversion can be quite common for those with autism. This isn’t lazy parenting or fussy children, this is sensory issues due to their condition that limits what our children eat. I am delighted they are very slowly exploring new textures.

‘I’m just happy they eat because there have been times they totally refuse.It may be basic and it’s still all beige but they’re happy and their tummies are full.

‘For anyone with autistic children this Christmas… I hope you had a calm day, I feel your exhaustion and I hear your sigh of relief that the Christmas period is almost over.’  [sic]

Christine said: ‘She’s got a long, tough road ahead. 6 months on chemo then radiotherapy. Isolated, away from family and friends. 

‘But we laugh every time we speak on the phone. My mum is an incredible strong woman.’   

Christine regularly gives candid updates to her Instagram and only recently she discussed her battle with insomnia.

Christine wrote: ‘Let’s talk insomnia… I’ve struggled with sleep since my teenage years, it’s totally normal for me to have between two-five hours sleep. 

‘I’m not trying to ‘fix’ this as it’s just a part of my life now and there are times that I love being awake through the night… it’s the only time I get to myself but I am looking for tips on how to switch off for those nights that I really need sleep! 

‘For me, there are so many reasons that I don’t sleep, reasons that I can’t do anything about so that’s why I’m not trying to fix it I just want to help reduce it if that makes sense! I would like to relax if/when I can.’ 

Update: Christine said: 'She's got a long, tough road ahead. 6 months on chemo then radiotherapy. Isolated, away from family and friends. But we laugh every time we speak on the phone. My mum is an incredible strong woman.'

She revealed that she hasn’t had much luck with sleep medication as she struggles to wake up and tend to her children when using them. 

Christine continued: ‘CBD has helped in the past, I LOVE gummies and CBD oil is actually great but I hate the taste of it… I’m looking for a flavoured oil to try.

‘I don’t want any melatonin or sleepy pills because I need to be able to wake up easy and alert if my children need me.

‘I also don’t like lavender or heavily scented room sprays, I’ve got hypersensitive smell honestly I can almost taste them they’re not for me.’

Christine also confirmed that she always sleeps nude and revealed she hasn’t drunk alcohol for 13 years.

The mother-of-three added: ‘Oh I just can’t wear pjs, or anything at all to sleep but I need a quilt whatever the weather. 

‘I don’t watch TV, I’m a televerian! (I totally just made that word up but basically I very rarely watch TV).

‘I struggle to read books because I can’t stay focused any more than one sentence and I try to stay off my phone in the evening. I’m also Ttotal, have been for 13 years so a cheeky vodka is a no no! But my mind just loves to party all night! 

‘HBU? #Insomnia #icantGetNoSleep #CBD #OverThinker #SleepDisorder #ExhaustedMummy.’

Christine’s struggle to switch off at night has been made worse by her mother’s recent breast cancer diagnosis.
