Claire was lending her support to the book by Ross King, a showbiz journalist who has written a novel about celebrity scandal and Hollywood beneath the glamour.


After the party, Claire tweeted: "A lovely evening."

The 43-year-old announced her pregnancy in May when she was at the five-month mark. In a posting to Twitter, she combined her happy baby news with the success of her stage show Sex and the Suburbs.

"Thrilled to say my show that I co wrote Sex and the Suburbs has opened to rave reviews,but the BEST news is I'm 5 months pregnant!!"

Claire is expecting the baby with ex-fiance Daniel Riley. They quietly split in December but remained close and are looking forward to raising the child together.

A rep for Claire said: ""Claire could not be happier. To be pregnant and starring in her own show in her home town of Liverpool is all her dreams come true at once."
