Pregnant Katie Piper has finally gone on maternity leave - with just days to spare until her baby's birth!

Katie's TV show Bodyshockers wrapped last night and now the final episode has aired, the star has at last decided to take maternity leave.

The 30-year-old mum-to-be is expecting her first baby - a girl - with her long-term partner James and is kicking back and resting until her arrival.

Last night, Katie tweeted: "That's a wrap! Thanks for all ur #BodyShockers tweets tonight loved seeing your regrets and proud markings!"

She then added: "Ok time to take maternity leave!"
Katie, who suffered terrible burns in an acid attack in 2008, travelled around the UK meeting people who had regretted modifying their bodies with piercing, inkings and plastic surgery for the C4 show.

The inspirational star was only in the early stages of pregnancy when the series was filmed, and now she is due to give birth any day.

But rather than heading to bed last night once her final episode had finished, Katie instead sat up into the early hours getting tips on labour by watching repeats of One Born Every Minute!

"Was supposed to be going to sleep but now glued to One Born Every Minute!!" she tweeted.

Katie has definitely taken her pregnancy in her stride. Earlier this month, Katie told Reveal how the thought of giving birth "doesn't bother" her given everything she's been through.

She said: "I've been through lots of medical procedures and lots of physical difficulties and now I'm going through physical difficulties with an amazing outcome, so it doesn't really bother me."
