“For some reason I have been feeling really chilled throughout the pregnancy – but I do hope Danny gets there in time.”

The Mousetrap was the first West End production to resume shows following a long hiatus due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Mac, 33, added: “I’m not sure what the plan is but I imagine it will be to get off stage as quickly as possible!
