But the down-to-earth fashionista said she finds it strange to be considered a style icon.

"I always feel mildly embarrassed when people say it," she said. "But it’s very flattering. I think they’re lying and just being really nice," she joked.

While she also has her own range of shoes with Bourbon, she said there are no plans to introduce a maternity line.

"I don’t know about maternity, it’s not an area that I love and it’s for such a limited time," she said. "For so long in your pregnancy, you don’t need it – it’s just the end bit. Then it’s just dressing for necessity.

"I don’t particularly enjoy it. I try to dress non-maternity and work around the basics. Maternity stuff has come on, but a lot of it, I wouldn’t love."
