“If she starts work on the day of the NTA which is live from the O2, let me know and I’ll come over and host it,” Rob joked.

Discussing the plan for the evening, Josh asked Joel what the communications plan was for the evening.
“Have you discussed the nature of the communication, will you keep your phone on?
“That’s what I think,” Joel explained, “because you know it’s live so there are breaks so I think I’ll just keep my phone on me and check during the breaks and then I might come back after a break and suddenly it’s Craig Doyle.

Speaking about the pregnancy, Joel also confirmed that Hannah was doing well, but she was having trouble sleeping, so he read aloud to her.
