Steph McGovern shares rare insight into pregnancy struggles amid 'debilitating' illness
Steph’s Packed Lunch presenter Steph McGovern, 40, has opened up about difficulties she experienced during pregnancy thanks to her “terrible” IBS.The former BBC Breakfast star spoke about how she had since made a new breakthrough with her health thanks to expert Dr. Julia Jones in an exclusive interview with Express.co.uk. Steph has been very open about her struggles with IBS in the past, regularly posting about the subject on her Instagram feed. According to the NHS website, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is a common condition that affects the digestive system. It causes symptoms like stomach cramps, bloating, diarrhoea and constipation - and it’s usually a lifelong problem.Steph’s symptoms were particularly bad when she was pregnant with her daughter a couple of years ago. The Channel 4 star and her partner announced the birth of their two-year-old daughter back in November 2019.Shortly before falling pregnant, Steph found out that her gut health was in the bottom third of the population, which forced her to think more about her health. Steph admitted: “That was pretty embarrassing, and I didn’t even know anything about gut health - that was for a TV show I was doing.“So then they talked to me about gut health and things I could do to make it better, saying that could help my IBS… But then I was pregnant.”The presenter then went on to detail the difficulties surrounding her pregnancy. “I had really, really bad pregnancy sickness, so I couldn’t really do anything about it,” she revealed. “Obviously I had the baby and was caught up with all that, and then when Julia came on and talked about her smart wellness programme, I thought: ‘Oh, well this actually sounds really easy to do.’”Steph met Dr.

Steph McGovern nearly threw up on Gordon Brown at No. 10 after wild night out
Channel 4.But Steph McGovern has revealed that she almost threw up her tasty breakfast while interviewing Gordon Brown.What many fail to remember is the fact that the 39-year-old presenter formerly worked as a political journalist during the height of the financial crisis in the late nineties.As a result, the blonde bombshell often found herself rubbing shoulders with the biggest names in the Houses of Parliament – including none other than the then-Prime Minister himself.However, he wasn’t always the cool cat she appears to be on TV nowadays, as the mum-of-one confessed how she loved nothing more than splashing her cash on a wild night out on the town with friends.But it’s fair to say her crazy antics backfired when she was suddenly called to interview the former Labour Party leader at Number 10 after a heavy night of drinking.Speaking to Woman&Home magazine, the star confessed that the night before her interview she was partying with none other than Chris Evans and Kylie Minogue in the heart of Hyde Park.She told the publication: “One night, I ended up partying all night with Chris Evans at a party in Hyde Park, where Kylie [Minogue] was too.“I was meant to be off the following morning but was called to Downing Street with Robert Peston to interview Gordon Brown. It was really bad because I drank too much and thought I was going to be sick.“At one point, Gordon asked me if his hair was all right and I thought, ‘He’s got a bit of hair sticking up but I cannot go over to pat his hair down for fear of throwing up on him’.”And it turns out that the star was unable to keep the alcohol down as she confessed: “About half an hour later, I was.
