Rachel is a Manchester United fan and hopefully, she didn’t get to see the match which never ended in the favour of her favorite club as they were thrashed to a 5:0 final score from their visitors Liverpool.

Rachel is married to former Strictly star Pasha Kovalev, they both met in 2013 and both have Maven 2, as their daughter.

The pair both believed in having two kids below the age of 2 years with their reason being that it’d enable both bond together.

Pasha previously told OK! magazine: “I think it’s great because this helps them feel closer together. It will give them a chance to bond better because having a bigger age gap between them could leave them feeling more separated.”

Speaking to MailOnline about motherhood, Rachel said: “We’ve bashed them out! Get the sleep deprivation over in one go is the plan” she concluded.
