Davina McCall, who has three children with husband Matthew Robertson, has ruled out plans for more children of her own, but said she would be interesting in taking on the temporary care of a disadvantaged youngster.

The 'Big Brother' presenter said: “We’ve drawn a line under that. No more children. Matthew and I have discussed it. If there was an accident and I got pregnant, it would be a lovely mistake. But you will all know that’s exactly what it is.

“If I stepped down from work massively in the future – which I’m hoping not to do for a good few years yet – I would be interested in fostering.

“We’ve got a beautiful family and great kids – we’ve got a lot to offer.”

The 42-year-old star even turned down the opportunity to appear on ‘Strictly Come Dancing’ because of her kids.

She told Now! magazine: “They’ve asked me and if I didn’t have children I’d jump at the chance. But it’s so much time away from the family and I don’t think I could do it.”
