But Brooke's attempt at a pre-event selfie didn't quite go to plan. Taking to her Instagram Story as she took a posing video in a car park before heading home, the mum-of-two said: "I have a really bad habit of not taking nice pictures when I'm actually dressed. I remembered this as I was leaving to go home so I propped up the phone in the car park in a hole in the wall against a pip just for the memories."

She then shared another photo of her in a khaki green gym set, surrounded by piles of clothes. "This was me 1.20 mins prior in the middle of my never ended 'putting away' washing pile!" Brooke typed alongside it. "It was a swift transition with the end result being I need to get a picture today in clothes other than gym wear!"

"God loves a trier," the 30-year-old added along with a third picture she took in a lift. "The dirty lift mirror just sums up my photo-taking skills." And it wasn't long before she reshared Helen's post to her own Instagram Story, writing: "Point proven," as she tagged Helen alongside a love heart eyes emoji. "Fsake!!! Why am I like this," Brooke added alongside a crying laughing emoji.
