Love Island star Camilla Thurlow is throwing a virtual baby shower ahead of the arrival of her first child.

Camilla, who is expecting a baby with boyfriend Jamie Jewitt, got dressed up at home ready to meet her nearest and dearest online.

The heavily pregnant former islander, 31, wore a dark purple maternity dress which she proudly showed off on Instagram.

Wearing her hair up she posed with her hands on her hips proudly displaying her baby bump, and joked she had had ‘a spruce up’ ahead of the event.

But like most of us, everything out of shot was casual.

She wrote in the caption: ‘Little spruce up for my virtual baby shower today 🥰 (although still cosy in my slippers thankfully) #37weeks’.

It comes after the reality TV star opened up about her third trimester, admitting it hasn’t been plain sailing.

She explained that she was struggling to sleep and had been struck by ‘the onset of third trimester sickness’ which ‘happened to coincide with some very hot weather and a busy work spell’.

‘I think I’ve been pretty lucky with my pregnancy so far. First trimester felt quite rough, second trimester felt quite good… a couple of weeks ago, suddenly everything just changed,’ the TV star said.

‘I started being sick all the time, having to wake up in the night to be sick, not really sleeping very well.

‘It was also the time when the British summer time just suddenly came back – it was really hot and it was quite a busy work time as well, and I started to feel really overwhelmed by it all.’

She found comfort through the app Peanut, a community that supports each other through motherhood.

Camilla and Jamie, who announced their baby news in May, have been together since meeting on Love Island in 2017, finishing in second place behind winners Amber Davies and Kem Cetinay.
