The later stages of pregnancy open up a whole new world and Rebecca Adlington has looked on the bright side as usual by using her huge bump as a handy shelf. Score!

The four-time Olympic medallist has discovered one of those pregnancy perks, resting a cup of tea on her blossoming bump!

The excited mum-to-be shared a snap of her bump-shelf-combo on Instagram: "Bump/cup of tea rest!!! Perfect! #bankholiday #tea#pregnancy."

Just look at that! The mug is even emblazoned with the letter 'B', which probably stands for Becky, but we're going to pretend it's actually for "baby" or " bump", just to make the snap even more impressive.

Things are really gearing up for parents-to-be Becky and husband Harry Needs, on Sunday (3 May) they waved goodbye to their flatmate, fellow Olympic swimmer James Goodard.

The I'm A Celebrity star took to Twitter, saying: "Sad seeing @JamesGoddard83 move out today!! He's like family! Feel like me & @Harryneeds have to grow up now & prepare for the little one!"

And they don't have much time left to prepare, the newborn will be here in about four weeks time!

There's no denying Becky deserved this bank holiday rest as she's been on a whirlwind recently.

First wowing us with her maternity style at the BT Sports Industry Awards and then giving expert advice on all things health at a fitness fair.

Becky isn't the only mum-to-be discovering the joys this late stage of pregnancy offers. Abbey Clancy can't see her feet, and discussed the woes of nesting mode with fellow pregnant star Fearne Cotton.
