A report in the Daily Mirror revealed that Natasha, 32, was taken to Southmead Hospital Bristol by boyfriend Ritchie Neville, where she was told she was three centimetres dilated.

However, a rep for Natasha has now told Reveal that after 48 hours of being in suspected labour, the contractions stopped and Natasha was sent home.

"She's under the watchful eye of her midwife and they've got the hospital bag ready and packed!" added her spokesperson.

So, the wait continues!

According to The Mirror, Natasha had been warned by Ritchie, 35, that perhaps it would be best to skip Kerry's wedding as her due date was so near. She's due on 26 September.

But a source said: "Natasha loves Kez so she went along to show her support."

Natasha had been attending the wedding of Kerry Katona (centre).

Natasha had joked before leaving for Kerry's nuptials to George Kay that she'd packed so much in the event of an emergency she'd be moving in with her pal!

She tweeted: "Might as well pack the kitchen sink for this wedding!!! Hospital bag, car seat, preggers pillow + all our wedding gear, Kez we're moving in! Must admit I've only pack this am and I'm so tired. Think I'll be first to be in bed at wedding for sure, be lucky if I make it past 7pm."

5ive star Ritchie, meanwhile, had tweeted on 12 September: "Wish this baby would just decide to be here now. The suspense is killing me :) @NatashaOfficial."

Well, he nearly got his wish over the weekend, but for now they'll just have to wait a bit longer.

Ritchie tweeted this morning: "Wasn't expecting to spend the night in hospital with @NatashaOfficial it's been a long day and night but all is okay."
