The temperatures are set to rise in the UK again in the coming weeks – and Laura Whitmore may have come up with a handy trick for other parents trying to keep their babies cool in the hot weather.

In a post on Instagram, the 36-year-old TV presenter – who is currently in Majorca presenting Love Island – shared a sweet picture of her three-month-old daughter in a pram, wearing adorable "of course I'm cute" socks.

The image, which featured sunny Spanish weather in the background, also showed how the new mother had cleverly strapped a portable fan to the handle that was pointed directly at her little girl.

She welcomed the newborn, along with husband Iain Stirling, in March – and the star appeared to confirm in May that her name is Stevie Ré.

It comes after Whitmore – who married her comedian husband last autumn – opened up about motherhood and her post-pregnancy body.

On Instagram, the presenter said: "Little tip for speaking to new mums…everyone has a different experience so please don’t put your opinion or expectation on them.”

She added: “I’ve been told I won't be able to leave the house and should feel shit.

"But I actually feel the best I’ve ever felt and the happiest I’ve ever been in my entire life.”
