Nadia Sawalha revealed she suffers with incontinence

“I have dealt with incontinence, and it is deeply unsexy, let’s face it,” she said. 

“When you think about all the things you share and women, and the things I tell Mark [her husband] - I really didn’t want to tell him that.”

She continued: “Do you remember when we were doing the trampolining on here? Well, I wet myself live on air.

“I just thought that was going to be my life now. Sometimes there can be weeks where it’s much worse than others.”

She added: “Because it’s such a taboo, it’s so important that as women, we do talk about it because you don’t have to accept it. There are so many things you can do.”
