Gemma will be starring alongside Sarah Dearlove, of Housewives on Holiday, and Amy Ambrose. 

Anna Anikeyeva, producer, said: “As a Mum-to-be, this show has me both splitting at the sides and overwhelmed with emotion, it is everything I didn’t know me and my friends needed.”

The show is touring all over the UK, visiting 43 different theatres. 

Mum's The Word will headline The Swan Theatre in Worcester on Sunday, September 18.
