Meanwhile panellist Jane Moore accidentally let slip the way she keeps her family close during a debate about mobile phones in schools on today’s show.

She believed educating your kids and having conversations with them about the Internet is the best way forward, while fellow panellist Brenda Edwards reckoned children should stay away from smartphones altogether.

But it came as Jane was discussing people using their smartphones in restaurants rather than engaging in conversation with their companions.

Picking her own phone up off the desk to demonstrate, she said: "Sometimes I'll pick up my phone when I'm with you and check, 'Oh the kids are okay'. And then I'll put it down."

She remarked on the rudeness of people ditching in-person conversation entirely to stay focused on their gadgets – but, as she showed her phone to the camera, a glimpse of her lockscreen photo was visible.

It looked to be a snap of her two daughters, Ellie and Grace.

If so, it's an incredibly sweet way for Jane to keep them close while on-set.

Though she tends to keep her personal life private, Jane does share the occasional photo on social media with her kids – and recently posed with Ellie, her eldest, on holiday next to a vintage VW Campervan.

Writing alongside the snap, Jane penned: "Touring the gorgeous Dorset in a vintage VW camper van called Scarlett with my eldest daughter. Such fun.

"We’ve already done Poole, Studland Bay, Corfe Castle and West Bay and tomorrow it’s the New Forest."

Jane also has a step-daughter, Lauren, with her partner Gary.
