The Atonement star also said she’s been busy training her daughter to sit still in preparation for Christmas dinner with their family.

“We’ve actually been testing out and making Sunday roasts to see if she could sit at the table for long enough for the Christmas dinner,” she said. “All that keeps happening is she looks at the brussels sprouts and she goes ‘Ball! Ball!’ and she grabs them and lobs them at you. I’m hoping that doesn’t happen on Christmas day.”

The Jonathan Ross Show will air on Saturday on ITV and feature Kylie Minogue, Paul Hollywood, Miranda Hart and David Walliams.
