Louisa Lytton has been in tears while chowing down on chips after feeling "such guilt" about craving fast-food during her pregnancy.
The 'EastEnders' actress has admitted she "couldn't stop" gorging on pizzas and McDonald's during her first trimester, so much so she would be queuing up at a drive-through 30 minutes after eating a roast dinner, and she used to carry cheese around the BBC One soap's set so she could feed her cravings in between scenes.
She wrote on Instagram: "First trimester. I’ve never felt hunger like it. I think every 5-10 minutes in fact [crying laughing emoji] on average I think I ate 56 Mc Ds and 74 pizzas a week. I couldn’t stop. Poor Ben would make a whole roast dinner on a Sunday and I’d be queuing at a drive thru 30 minutes later. And CHEESE, I carried cathedral cheese bites around in my pocket at work to eat behind a set wall when no one was watching [crying laughing emoji] The only way to describe it was a 24/7 7 day a week hangover. The only thing that would subside the sickness was salt and ketchup. Now I know I’m lucky I could stomach food, I know some people simply can’t? I felt such guilt, how could I give this baby such a terrible start. I’m out the other side now, and I wish I just relaxed a bit more and didn’t cry into every portion of chips. (sic)"
As a result, Louisa – who plays Ruby Allen on the show – admitted all she can think about when people ask about her first few months of pregnancy is opening her door to see an UberEats employee delivering a takeaway.
She added: "I’ve had a lot of people ask about my experience of the first few months, all I can think of is the UberEats man at the door. So I wanted to share and ask, PLEASE TELL ME I WAS NOT ALONE? Love you all, thanks SO much for the wonderful messages it really means a lot (sic)"
