Speaking to Alison Hammond and Dermot O’Leary, Amanda revealed she asked Clive not to be present for Clammy’s birth.
She said: “Well the thing is as I say it was number eight, after having six of them by that point by the side of the road, the thought of just staying at home was kind of a really good option.
“I was so fed up with spoiling people’s picnics and the rest of it. I thought, ‘Right well this time I’m just going to go it alone.’
“So I thought yes, I put the kettle on, stoked up the fire and had her in front of the fire with just a terrier as a birthing partner.”
