ANY busy mum can relate to needing five minutes of peace and quiet – and TV presenter Christine Lampard is no different.
The 44-year-old Loose Women anchor recently revealed that when she’s looking for some ‘me time’ away from her children Patricia, four, and Freddie, two, she’s found the perfect solution.
Christine, who shares her kids with husband Frank Lampard, confessed that she’s recently discovered a brand new hiding place in her home.
Her secret saviour? Her tiny ‘she-shed’ which the Lampards recently purchased for their garden.
The star explained: “There’s very, very few hiding places in our house – it used to be the loo, but you can open the doors from the other side anyway.
“So everyone’s figured out how to do that and my two-year-old just goes, “mummy!” – [and then] unclick…”

“But, weirdly, we bought this little shed recently to put all the gardening bits in and all the muck that you don’t want in the house.
The mum-of-two added in a recent episode of the ITV lunchtime show: “It’s tiny but I walked into it the other day and thought, ‘this could be a good hiding place – even just a little five minutes.
“And nobody’s interested in it because it’s just the shed – but I could convert it and no-one would even know.”
And it didn’t take long for her co-star Stacey Solomon – known for her love of home interiors and craft – to offer to renovate it for her.

She turned to Christine and said: “You could put wallpaper up, get a carpet in there – I would decorate your ‘she-shed’.”
However, Christine isn’t the only Loose Women panellist to admit to a secret hiding spot.
Stacey also revealed she’s no stranger to taking a time out and leaving hubby Joe Swash in charge of the home Pickle Cottage and their children – Rex, four, Rose, two, and Belle, seven months, as well as sons Zachary, 15, and Leighton, 11, from previous relationships.
The former X Factor star said: “How can you have five kids and not have a hiding place?
“I always go in the downstairs toilet because no-one likes that toilet because it hasn’t got a radiator so it's a bit colder in there.
“No-one goes in there – I love sitting in there in silence and pretending I'm on the toilet – is that weird?
“I can lock the door and sometimes I'll leave the light off so it doesn't even look like I'm in there and play on my phone."
Adding that she uses her tactic “every day” for at least ten minutes, Stacey said: “And I can hear Joe faffing with something and he'll be like, 'Stace! Stace!'
