And the bride-to-be won’t officially become Mrs. Swash after the wedding day as she wants to have the same surname as her children. 

Talking to Zoe Ball on BBC Radio 2 about her upcoming wedding, the TV personality said: ‘It is a really funny one, obviously Joe would love me to have his second name.  

‘Nothing wrong with his second name but because of kids I want to have the same surname as the kids,’ she added: ‘Maybe I will double-barrel it?’

She continued: ‘When my sister got married I felt a bit heartbroken, like ‘You aren’t my full sister anymore?’.’

The Loose Women star also admitted that she is trying to ‘stay positive’ during planning amid the current Covid restrictions surrounding marriage ceremonies. 

Earlier this month, Boris Johnson warned June 21 is the earliest possible date for full-size weddings but even then it will be subject to a review of the Government’s ‘four tests’.
