Asked about his new series on the show Romesh said: ‘I’ve written sitcoms that are very gentle with funny scenarios, but I’ve never written something that is so driven by plot – you want it to be funny but you also want to drive this twisty story. It was amazing.’

He said: ‘Most Netflix specials are done at the Apollo, so I thought it would be funny to do it at my local theatre in Crawley, which looks like a leisure centre!’  

Romantic Getaway will be on Sky Comedy with NOW from January 1 and has six episodes.

Romesh and Katherine star together as the couple at the centre of the series Deacon and Alison.

‘Mom is incredible! Proving her strength repeatedly through the relatively lengthy delivery at home. We are so blessed:)’.

Katherine also shared an adorable son of their son Fred, 18 months, meeting his new sister captioned with the timestamp of 12.05. 

She later took to her Story to share that there was a ‘glitch’ during the birth which led to things being delayed and ‘a bit touch and go’ but that she was now fine. 

The TV star is also mother to daughter Violet, 12, from a previous relationship. 

Katherine revealed she was pregnant with her third child back in July.

The TV personality admitted she learned she was expecting after trying for the first time while still breastfeeding her son Fred, who she welcomed just 13 months ago.
