Speaking to The Sun, Katherine said: 'During my pregnancy I wasn’t telling anyone. You can’t get insured on any production if you are pregnant. Sometimes, if you are important enough, they go the extra mile. You see Holly Willoughby pregnant and that’s because she’s worth it.
'I tried to keep it secret. People just thought I was really fat for ages. I had to keep it quiet. I still needed to work to feed my family.'
She went on: 'If you go on the BBC’s insurance site it says it doesn’t insure for any matters of the womb. If your vagina falls off on set, that’s it. You don’t want to let down a production if you have some complication of pregnancy.'
