Sharing the news in an Instagram video, she said: “It’s something that I’ve been quietly working on for the past six months or so.

“It’s something I’ve been passionate about for a while, but turning 40 this year, having two kids and working I realised how little time a lot of us have for a beauty regime.

“When it comes to our health and wellness, it gets pushed to the bottom of the pile, because of life.

“I wanted to create products that will still make us feel great, look great, smell great and perform great.

“There’s a lot coming.”

Fans were quick to respond with their excitement of the range, along with her fiancé Gorka Marquez who replied “yay” with clapping and heart emojis.
