One fan asked if Keith was talking about Emily Atack, to which Laura responded: ‘Ha ha, yes he was! Emily and I are team captains. It’s a gorgeous name, but would get confusing x.’

She said: ‘As I finish this book, it doesn’t end at chapter nine, there’s a new chapter coming into my life – in the form of a baby girl currently growing inside me and that scares the s**t out of me. 

‘I once swallowed a bug and freaked out there was a live bug inside me. A live human is a whole new level of freaking out but I am excited because there’s a lot of good in the world, there’s a lot of potential.’

Reflecting on impending motherhood, Laura said: ‘I want to bring up my child knowing that she has her own story to write.’ 

‘She will be supported and loved. But she is the heroine of her own life, no-one else.’
