Amy Hart went back to work the day after she gave birth.

The 31-year-old star - who shot to fame when she appeared on 'Love Island' in 2019 and has since carved out a successful career as an influencer - welcomed baby Stanley with fiance Sam Rason in March 2023 but shocked a nurse when she started working again from her hospital bed in the middle of the night.

Speaking on the 'Spinning Plates' podcast, she told 'Murder on the Dancefloor' singer Sophie Ellis-Bextor: "He was born on the Friday morning, at three o'clock in the morning, and one of the nurses came into my hospital room to check on the baby on the Saturday. She was like 'What are you doing?' and I said 'I'm just sorting out this, I've got a giveaway on my Instagram and I need to screenshot all the people who got the answer right'.

"She said 'It's three o'clock in the morning, you had a baby yesterday, please go to sleep!'"

The TV star is self-employed and as such enjoys no maternity benefits but while she is "lucky" enough to be in a position to take a year off, she would never think of doing so in case there was "nothing" available to her when she came back.

She said: "So that was when I went back to work was the next day and it sort of went from there. I don't work all the time, I'm very lucky but when your job is being you there's not very much time off.

"I have a lot of people who tell me I could afford to take a year off when I tell them there is no maternity leave. I can afford to now, but if I took a year off work there wouldn't be anything there when I came back. It's all about momentum and it's all about keeping it going.

"It's a fickle industry, especially with influencing now. It's so saturated. But I love my job."

"I don't even really see it as a job. I used to be an air hostess and I always say that if I ever had to go to work, that would be the job I'd want to do. My job is a job. I pay my tax, I pay my national insurance."
