Speaking to The Irish Star’s Chic magazine, Jennifer said: “I’d never rule it out. That’s the nature of the business I do. You have to go where the work is.

“I moved back to Ireland originally for work, but if we had to go back to the UK, we would.”

The mum-of-one (36) welcomed her first child Florence with her husband Lau Zamperelli last year and said she is looking forward to their first Christmas spent in their own house.

“We’re going to stay in our own house and that’s the way it is.

“I have had a bit of emotional blackmail but I’m not going to budge.

“I think once you have your own child then you’re allowed to stay in your own house for Christmas. Florence is too small to know about Santy but I have another big kid in the house and that’s Lau.

“He absolutely loves Christmas and he starts getting ready now, so you can imagine what he’ll be like by the time the big day comes around.”

The programme has been a big hit with viewers and was highly rated by The Guardian and The Radio Times.
